Environmental extremists claim that unless every American is immediately forced to buy an electric vehicle the world will come to an end within the next few years.

But now even major auto manufacturers are admitting that is simply a pipe dream.

And one failed marketing stunt forced Ford’s CEO to publicly admit one glaring flaw with environmental extremists’ electric vehicle push.

Thank God for the automobile

The automobile has been one of the most impactful inventions in modern history.

It has helped improve nearly every job imaginable, and it’s made traveling beyond your neighborhood a daily opportunity rather than a rare occurrence.

And it’s brought a lot of us closer together than ever would have been possible if the car had never existed.

But ever since the beginning of the 20th century, the car has been driven by an internal combustion engine fueled by gasoline.

And believe it or not, there’s reasons for that.

Gasoline is one of the most efficient and cheapest forms of fuel available.

And beyond what climate change activists would like to tell you, there is an abundance of fuel still to be drilled and discovered.

But fuel has caught the scorn of climate activists, and now governments around the world are trying their best to destroy the oil and gasoline industry.

They claim their war on oil and gas is to fight climate change, but in reality, experts have admitted that even if every car in America was magically made electric tomorrow, it would only have a “marginal” impact on global carbon emissions, which they claim is the root cause of climate change.

At the end of the day, environmental extremists either want you to not travel at all, or to buy an electric vehicle – either way, you’re much easier to control.

Democrats’ EV dreams are really a nightmare

While environmental extremists demand government force every American into electric vehicles immediately, they’re also actively fighting against the U.S. mining industry, preventing the creation of any of the many cobalt, nickel, and lithium mines needed to build the lithium-ion battery packs that fuel EVs.

That, coupled with numerous other Democrat-led regulations, red tape, and the fact that electric vehicle technology is still very early its infancy when compared to the internal combustion engine, has resulted in EV prices being excessively high compared to gas-powered vehicles.

In fact, EVs’ current price point make them a pipe dream for most working class Americans, especially in the current economic environment created by President Joe Biden and Democrats.

Furthermore, with EVs relying on developing technology, they are not only expensive to buy, but they’re also somewhat impractical for anyone who takes frequent long trips.

While gas stations are on every corner, EV charging stations still haven’t made it to many areas, putting those who don’t plan their route accordingly in a bit of a pickle at times.

That’s a fact Ford CEO Jim Farley was forced to learn the hard way during a recent marketing stunt, in which he attempted to make a cross-country trip in the company’s oft-criticized and issue-prone electric F-150.

After learning that finding charging stations is “pretty challenging” on such long trips, Farley took to social media to publicly admit that the company still has a long way to go.

“Charging has been pretty challenging,” Farley admitted. “It was a really good reality check of the challenges of what our customers go through and the importance of fast charging and what we’re going to have to do to improve the charging experience.”

Despite Democrats’ efforts to force electric vehicles on the American people, the fact remains that their “green revolution” will only create far more issues than it solves.
