EPA pushing for an all-electric fleet

American Thinker:

Big government loves to trod on the little guy, the citizen, the tax slave.

As history would show, economic collapse ushers in absolute tyranny; no wonder “they” can barely hide their agenda for financial ruin. Just take a look at this breakdown of Rand Paul’s Festivus report which details nearly half a trillion dollars just in interest on the national debt because people like Nancy Pelosi and Mitt Romney remain beholden to self and special interests using our money.

Enter the newest EPA “regulations” — what a nice euphemism for the illegality of the Fourth Branch of bureaucrats making de facto laws! From a piece by Candace Hathaway at Blaze Media:

The Environmental Protection Agency announced it would enforce tighter pollution regulations on heavy-duty trucks, vans, and buses. The stricter nitrogen dioxide emissions standards could lead to higher operating costs for the trucking industry….

The EPA’s new regulations, which impact vehicles manufactured after 2027, aim to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions by approximately 50% by 2045.

According to the EPA, the recently announced emission rule is the ‘strongest-ever national clean air standards to cut smog- and soot-forming emissions from heavy-duty trucks.’ The EPA boasted that the new standard is 80% stronger than current regulations.

The agency admits that the more stringent standards are meant to force the trucking industry to transition away from diesel-powered vehicles and replace fleets with electric vehicles.

You read that right: in a world where cold weather prevents EVs from charging, water exposure leads to spontaneous combustion, and inefficient technology leaves people stranded, comrades in the bureaucracy want to force the entire diesel trucking industry to comply with the Green agenda measures. For reference, a trucking industry website stated that there are “more than 15 million commercial vehicles” in the U.S., and “76% are powered by diesel engines.” Simple math would therefore show that the EPA set its sights on 11,400,000 commercial trucking vehicles that make our world go round.

  1. This take one of the Primary American Civil rights away – the right to travel and move about in personal transportation vehicles by eliminating the ability to refuel or power vehicles. Globalism achieved and gulags are urban/rural created

  2. Fine. Now all we have to do is lay off 90% of the EPA staff so we can afford to pay for it. You can’t have a useless staff and a useless fleet of EVs. It’s one or the other.

  3. Gangstas been stealing catalytic converters for holiday cash.
    Just wait until they move on to lithium batteries!

    Or, vandalizing charging stations to steal copper/aluminum/etc
    Ay, carumba!

  4. This is all about enriching China, the source of the batteries in EVs. Nitrogen dioxide emissions from diesels are already near zero, thanks to EGR and DEF. But what about all those private and commercial jets flying around? They use fuel similar to diesel…what about those emissions?
