This excuse of saving the planet is PURE bullshit

#7 Unless those cars are powered by nuclear, the CO2 output from the coal powered plants to charge a electric car is greater than regular gasoline.

#8 As I understand it, China uses more coal that the rest of the world combined.

Where does Chuckles the clown think all the parts for all those cars are going to come from.....and what energy will be used...not to mention batteries.

#12 Senator Schumer has lived most of his life in New York City, where most people never own a private car. So while he represents the entirety of New York state, his natural constituency will be absolutely delighted to cause problems for those that have what they don’t.
