Biden signs executive order saying there is ‘no turning back’ from electric vehicles

President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Thursday that aims to ensure that half the new vehicles sold in the United States in nine years will be electric or carbon-free. 

According to The Washington Examiner‘s report on the signing, its purpose was to unify the auto industry behind the lofty goal of an green automotive fleet in the United States. 

In attendance at the signing were the CEOs of the Big Three U.S. automakers as well as the president of the United Auto Workers union, all of whom looked on as Biden unveiled stricter binding standards for fuel efficiency and tailpipe emissions for cars and light trucks.

“Their vision of the future is now beginning to happen, a future that is electric,” Biden said from the Rose Garden, with electric vehicles parked behind him. “There is no turning back.”

The heads of Ford, GM, and Stellantis made a joint statement in which they said they share a goal of 40%-50% of EVs (defined as battery electric, fuel cell, and plug-in hybrids), but they seemed to indicate some doubt by saying they are giving themselves more leeway.

Currently, the United States stands to lose the battle for electric dominance to China, who have dedicated generous subsidies to spur purchases of their electric vehicles, which Biden called a lost opportunity.

“The question is whether we will lead or fall behind,” Biden said. “It’s whether we will build these vehicles or batteries in the United States or rely on other countries. Right now, China is leading the race. We are in competition with China.”

Even if the United States is able to play catchup on the electric vehicle front, we’re faced with a troubling possibility of global supply chain issues with cars and batteries coming from China

While Americans are working to become more conscious of green energy, they’re also concerned about Biden’s ties to China, and what incentive the current president might have for pushing a product that relies on the superpower for continued use.

It should be clear by now, Joe Biden is all about Joe Biden, china and his cronies and his kickbacks from his sons “business dealings” When are we going to see the requisite disclosures concerning where biden and the Biden family make all this money they seem to have?

I get paid $109 per hour working from home. I never thought I’d be capable to do it but my best buddy makes over $30214 a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The possibility with this is endless.

What an idiot. There’s no place to store dead old batteries which will create a huge environmental problem. Most of the electricity for the cars is generated by coal, which Biden is trying to kill. What are you going to do when there;s no electricity? We.re already having brown outs. Why do these ignorant people keep trying to make changes that we’re not prepared to make?

Biden is a fool to listen to the Greenies. The Greenies are day dreaming idiots who believe the impossible. The electrical grid would never be able to handle the enormous electrical drain of millions of electrical charges all draining power from the grid. And exactly where would the electrical power to charge those batteries come from? Answer: more power stations which the Greenies will complain about. What fuel will be used to power those power stations? Answer: the very same fuels used now except more expensive since the Greenies want power stations closed? To understand the illogical mindset of a Greenie, imagine an idiot sitting on the wrong side of a tree branch while sawing through that branch.

I’m a retired electrical engineer. From my experience the U.S. electrical grid would take at least 30 years, probably more, to expand sufficiently to handle the demand that tens of millions of electrical vehicals would require. One: meeting the requirements of the various levels of government to build an electrical facility currently take 5 years minimum. Two: The NIMBYs would raise hell !!! Three: The only available fuel (short term) for electric generating plants is COAL and OIL !!! Nuclear ???? You’ve got to be kidding ! Solar or wind……can’t provide the necessary power unless you cover half of a state with panels or wind farms. Four: There are millions of houses across the country that don’t have a convenient outdoor electrical receptical or electrical service to handle the charging requirements.
Yes, China is way ahead of us in electrical vehicles. BUT….they are building hundreds of COAL FIRED electrical generating plants to provide the juice. (Don’t forget….they ARE NOT signees of the Paris Accord, and they and India account for more than 80% of the global pollution from fossil fuels.)
In short, you’re looking at several trillion dollars across the board in government mandates, construction costs, and personal (household) expenses to meet the stated goal. The time line is impossible to boot !!!
Get Joe another pill…one that makes him see reality !

My sister lives in California and told me most of the new electric cars are going up in flames and once they start they’re unable to stop the fire. In the people who bought the car are losing their homes do to the car fire and they can’t put out the fire once it starts. I do know some of the electric cars are safe but that is a scary thing to hear about the new cars probably because of cheap wiring do to the production of the new cars coming in from other countries.

This guy is an idiot. He leaves the border open and then complains about people getting the shot. Takes credit for people going back to work when the states stopped the additional unemployment. Typical Biden buys a new suit and stands up at the podium and gaffs his way thru a presentation. My grandchildren could do a better job. He tells the people what a successful president he is. Prices going thru the roof, gas, food, normal needs and crime in the cities. Great job Joe.

Gasoline in my town has increased in price by $1.25 per gallon since Biden took over his stolen win. At this rate, gasoline will cost $5.35 per gallon by this coming January 1st ! We went from being an energy independant country, to again being dependant on foreign oil producers. How can anybody with a functioning brain agree with what Biden has done to this country?] I just don’t understand why hard core “liberals” can’t see Biden’s stupidity for what it is?

All of what you say is true, but he “says,” he is concerned about Covid and then lets people come through the border with the disease. Then buses them throughout the country. The infected count is now close to 8000. No wonder cases are increasing!! The president and the VP are doing nothing about that!!!

Biden and Harris need to be removed as they are putting unvacinated illegals before the safety of citizens. All illegals this President has let in our country need to be returned to their country. The gate needs to be closed and locked permently. The wall needs to be finished. Only coming in legally and being vacinated is acceptable.

Typically, the Republicans only sit on the fence watching the democrats slowly ruin the country. The Republicans will voice a few complaints but actually do nothing. That’s the reason why I refuse to give the RNC one lousy dime. Also, the RNC never gave the Trump any financial support even after requesting donations to help Trump. My gut tells me that the establishment Republicans are intentionally helping the democ]rats by not doing pro-active actions to stop the democrats!

Sure would like to know where all the electricity is going to come from. Orville dam just shut down generation, Shasta is a couple of months away from same. Not enough water, being used to keep salt water out of delta and protect delta smelt. Need more natural gas generation. They could cover every roof with solar panels in Calif. And still not have capacity to power all the electric cars in the state.

In some ways glad the orville dam is closed as its been leaking really bad for years! My prayers have aleays been for the folks in homes beneth the dam! AS for water to H with the smelt, they are GOOD for nothing! Put a mesh over the delta entries, so poor lil fishes cannot get thru. Let the water flow for we the people! Sure can tell what is important to the scum! He is a big waste, can;t wait till he is gone! Come on Mr Elder! Oh and the tree huggers who worry about the smelt feel free to pull them out if caught agains the mesh! YOU do it, NOT on OUR dime! The scum has wasted more than enough of our $$$$!

If you could eliminate all the pollution from the internal combustion engines in the U.S. (cars, trucks, trains, airplanes), you would only reduce the global pollution by 0.08 %……less than one tenth of one percent !

Just when our REAL president, Donald J. Trump, made our country energy independent, Joe Biden ended it with one of his infamous Executive Orders! Now, he’s forcing ultra expensive electric cars on Americans, which few can afford or even want! Of course, this has already caused the price of gasoline to increase, which will also increase the price of heating oil this winter. Considering all the other ways he has hurt our once thriving economy, I have to wonder just how much longer will we tolerate this illegal wrecking ball sitting in our White House?! As we await another lock down and wearing masks again, when will stand up and say “enough is enough”?! We are allowing this demented fake president to totally destroy our country and we’re doing NOTHING! Surely, the Democrats who cheated to elect him didn’t want to be under the rule of Communism! Yet, that’s exactly where he’s leading us and it’s amazing how quickly he’s doing it! It’s really heartbreaking when I think of how many citizens have given their lives to preserve our freedom and we’re just GIVING it away. May God forgive us.
