The fact that this even has to be said astounds me

Cold weather and batteries DO NOT MIX.

EAU CLAIRE, Wis.—Here in Wisconsin, where fewer than one-tenth of 1% of vehicles are fully electric, it’s rare to see an EV outside the city.

That’s why the latest international climate conference, Conference of the Parties (COP28), which advocated widespread adoption of electric vehicles, should have Wisconsinites concerned.

When the temperature drops below 40 degrees, which occurs over 200 days per year in Eau Claire, electric vehicles experience a reduction in range and efficiency, with losses of up to 40% when the heating system is in use.

My visit to my local automotive shop to have the tires rotated on the family Ram truck was unaffected by the 13-degree Fahrenheit weather.

I mean, let’s leave electric vehicles aside for just a moment. When I was stationed in Wisconsin, my gas powered truck had several moments where I thought it wasn’t going to start because when I turned the key, the dashboard lights took their sweet time coming to life. Outside temps were -46 degrees, and the temps inside the garage were about -20. These temps are not abnormal for the upper Midwest. Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Montana, Wyoming…..

How in the hell is a person supposed to drive to work when work is forty miles away, and your car will only get you thirty miles before the battery dies?

“Oh but Dave, you can plug in your car and there’s this battery warmer so you have all that range!” Really? And when that car is parked outside in an open parking lot while you’re working? Sure, you might GET to work but can you get HOME afterwards?

That doesn’t even bring into account the fact that we don’t have enough electricity production to cover all the EVs the Left wants to push, nor the grid to deliver the power

The people pushing EVs on America either don’t know what kind of stupid, moronic act they’re pushing, or they DO know and they’re just evil.

After the past few years, I’m going with the latter.

    Agreed…w/the latter point. While we here in NH don’t have THAT kind of cold with any regularity, I’ve seen many a day when my vehicles struggle to turn the motor over, all with strong, well charged batteries. I read LT daily, & enjoy your ’ragin’ when you post. I finally got off my lazy butt to let you know.

    That’s because none of the future plans of those people include owning an EV. They are much too important to have to wait for the batteries to recharge. And for damn sure their chauffer won’t be driving them around in one.

    Government is the greatest evil ever created by man.   No wonder it is exploited by the most evil of men and women to achieve their goals.

    Sooner or later we will run out of gasoline.  I don’t know how we will get around, but it won’t be battery  powered cars.

    This type of BS isn’t supposed to save the planet or anything else. It is supposed the tie everyone and everything up. Waste time, money, resources, bankrupt, crash the system. Then we get to be enslaved and/or die. The Great Reset is an active set of real programs. For brevity, some detains were left out.                                          Don’t forget to consult with your local “conspiracy confirmer” for clarifications and updates. Stay strapped, we still have a vote in the implementation of said programs.
