The Biden administration has been pushing for Americans to rapidly adopt electric vehicles with some even saying that high gas prices are a “good thing” because they force that adoption.
However, it appears these members of the administration have been severely misinformed about how “clean” these electric vehicles REALLY are.
Republican Rep. Thomas Massie recently exposed that ignorance, schooling Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who has been leading the charge behind the EV push, about the true impact of these vehicles they’re forcing us to use.
Massie points out that Biden has signed an executive order stating that 50% of vehicles sold in the United States should be electric by the year 2030.
The Republican then notes that charging an electric car uses about 50X as much electricity as it does to power a refrigerator, revealing that this would place a tremendous strain on the country’s notably fragile energy grid.
Buttigieg responds by admitting that Massie is correct about how damaging this could be to the grid, adding that to accomplish their rapid adoption fantasy, the grid will “need to be” upgraded to handle this sort of power by the year 2030 – a tall task at best.
Massie then points out that the numbers and rate of adoption set forward by the Biden administration have been developed using political science rather than actual engineering, and if we blindly follow these goals it will lead to tremendous pain and suffering for the middle class.
To see this climate activist get absolutely flattened by cold-hard facts, watch the full exchange between the two here.

Butt boy is just another demonrat that’s got his head up his ass. Totally clueless
I wish I’d said that
Correction, it’s his other half that has one of his heads up his ass!
if the dumb shit democraps do actually get what they want and all vehicles go electric then we as intelligent people will be at the democrats house to use their vehicles to do our errands
Just goes to show how unintelligent and uninformed these politicians are. The government should not force anyone to buy electric vehicles or to tell you you can buy a gas range or dryer. Stay out of our lives. These wind mills and solar panels take up way more space then a power plant. That means more trees are cut down you know natures air filters. Or more farmland is wasted for solar farms. These wind and solar farms don’t even come close to producing what a natural gas power plant can produce KW wise. Again the government shouldn’t dictate to me or anyone else. We are a free society. We can make up our own minds about what’s best for us and our way of live.
Ron you are a 100% correct.
Well said Ron, the unfortunate part is most Americans sadly don’t understand that Biden, bootygig and Camel – – e don’t have a clue what they’re doing. Corporate media is evil ? and schools brainwash folks into believing their nonsensical policies.
Mayor Buttplug is not only Incompetent, he has No Common Sense and has demonstrated this lack of judgment at every stage of his career.
America is not ready, nor is it prepared for this transition. We are decades, not years, DECADES away from being ready for the transition, and truthfully, the current Alternative Energy sources available cannot, and never will meet the country’s Grid Demand. Anyone saying it will, is LYING through their teeth.
If Republicans succeed in retaking the majority in both houses of Congress, Mayor Buttplug, is one of many Biden officials needing Impeached for his crimes against the Country.
Buttgeig is an absolute moron who should be a stay at home mommy.
The world is laughing at Biden. If Buttgeig gets to be President the world will be convulsing in hilarious pandemonium.
If elimination of fossil fuel is so great why is France and Germany after applying alternative sources of electric generation are now finding them not meeting demands and are reactivating mothballed power plants? Wake America we are nor can be totally fossil fuel independent and the Middle East is going to pump oil to upcoming Third World countries. Does everyone know that in the last 2decades The US has increased air quality better than 50%. Follow the money on these idiots Climate Change and Green Agenda
