You drive an electric car. You feel good about yourself. You’re saving the environment, so we all can bread cleaner, healthier air. Well. Not really.
California, the sixth-largest economy globally, emits only 1% of the world’s carbon emissions. Still, the governor — Gavin Newsom — wants to ban gas-powered cars in his state by 2035 in favor of clean, “zero-emissions” electric cars. But. Do electric cars help the environment? Bjørn Lomborg explains the dirty secret of the clean auto-industry.
The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime, will emit 31 metric tons of CO2 based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption, and average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just three tons more across its production, diesel consumption, and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro.
Police officers have become the targets of violent activists who are seeking to upend America as we know it. Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of The War on Cops, breaks down the myths behind “systemic racism” and “police brutality.”
Let’s pay attention to facts.
Candace starts her show by pointing our attention to a video that she saw circulating on the internet. It was a caucasian couple sitting in a Washington DC restaurant. A mob of Black Lives Matter “activists” decided to storm the restaurant and demand that people in the restaurant raise their fists in the air and gave the black power salute.
A young caucasian couple decided that they would not raise their fists in the air and give a black power salute. So the woman, who appears to be the group leader, proceeded to yell obscenities at them until finally, after realizing that the couple wasn’t going to buckle to the mob’s pressure, they left.
The conversation takes off from there and is quite interesting.
Black lives matter is a hate group. There is nothing nice about black lives matter. They are happy to use violent tactics. They are happy to use scare tactics. They are happy to burn. They are happy to riot. They are happy to loot to accomplish their goals.
