Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was fuming after she suffered a massive defeat she never saw coming

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought she had everything figured out.

    But one socialist scheme crumbled before her eyes.

    And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was fuming after she suffered a massive defeat she never saw coming.

    The country is in the midst of its biggest energy crisis in decades after Joe Biden declared war on American energy.

    With energy prices soaring for gas and electricity, Democrats aren’t letting the crisis go to waste.

    The radical environmental movement led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are pushing electric vehicles as the solution to high gas prices caused by Biden.

    Democrats have been pushing electric vehicles non-stop on drivers since Biden occupied the White House.

    California regulators recently announced that the sale of gas-powered vehicles in the state will be banned by the year 2035 paving the way for a massive expansion of electric vehicles.

    Democrats claim that gas-powered vehicles are destroying the planet and electrical vehicles are the environmentally friendly solution.

    Now, this green fantasy was exposed by one of the leading skeptics of the climate change cult, statistician Bjorn Lomborg.

    In an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal entitled “Policies Pushing Electric Vehicles Show Why Few People Want One,” Lomborg exposed the delusional push for electric vehicles by environmental wackos like Ocasio-Cortez.

    Lomborg pointed out the dirty little secret that electric vehicles aren’t nearly as environmentally friendly as their supporters claim.

    “Electric cars’ impact on air pollution isn’t as straightforward as you might think,” Lomborg wrote in The Journal. “The vehicles themselves pollute only slightly less than a gasoline car because their massive batteries and consequent weight leads to more particulate pollution from greater wear on brakes, tires and roads.”

    A study from the American Economic Association found that depending on the source of electricity used to power them, electrical vehicles can actually produce more air pollution than a gas-powered vehicle.

    Biden regime officials like Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg claim that electric vehicles will save drivers money without the cost of gas.

    According to Lomborg, a report from Biden’s own Department of Energy found that electric vehicles will cost drivers 9% more of the course of their lives compared to gas-powered vehicles.

    Lomborg poured cold water on the idea that these impractical vehicles could be the main form of transportation for most drivers.

    “. . . electric cars are often a luxury item. Two-thirds of the households in the U.S. that own one have incomes exceeding $100,000 a year. For 9 in 10 of electric-vehicle-owning households, it’s only a second car,” Lomborg wrote.

    He noted that these households use gas-powered vehicles for longer drives.

    Because of these massive problems with electric vehicles, they require thousands of dollars in taxpayer subsidies to move them off of the lot.

    “Politicians are spending hundreds of billions of dollars and keeping consumers from the cars they want for virtually no climate benefit,” Lomborg said.

    Democrat politicians are hysterically pushing impractical electric vehicles that won’t even benefit the environment because of their fanatical commitment to the climate cult agenda.
