I see that the Democrats are backing a bill to ban the use of gasoline powered cars by 2040. Fat chance. It will never get through the Senate.
But, what do they think will power cars? Electricity? Okay, fine. What source of power is going to be used to generate that electricity? Today, it's natural gas (35%), coal (27%), and nuclear (20%).
I knew guy a while back who had an electric car. I harassed him about using a coal powered car. He got offended, but our local power plant used lignite to run the steam turbines. So there.
IN the parts store today, doing a little politicking and laughing about the Democratic clown-car-show that they're putting on against Trump. This bill is simply pandering to the far-left base.
