'The big problem' with EVs

A researcher and writer says there's a simple reason why the Biden administration's ongoing and expensive EV push won't have consumers lining up to replace their gasoline-powered vehicles any time soon.

Dr Bjorn Lomborg, president of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, recently told Fox News "the big problem" is electric vehicles (EVs) are "just not great for everyone."

"That's the real issue," he offered. You have to spend a lot of money. You don't get a lot of people buying. It's mostly people in rich cities, it'll often be Democrats, and, of course, you mostly buy it to virtue signal."

He also pointed out that EV owners wanting to travel long distances will drive their gasoline-powered vehicles on those trips.

"About 90% of everyone who has an electric car also have a backup gas car that they'll use when they need to go far," Lomborg relayed. "So, the reality is even Biden's own Energy Information Administration estimates that by 2050, the U.S. will just have 12% EV cars."

The Biden administration maintains that EVs will combat what President Biden calls man-made climate change and reduce dependency on oil. Individuals, politicians, and special interest groups on the center-right, however, argue that the government should not be forcing products on people. Others disagree with the severity or existence of climate change.
