The Left are completely obsessed with the “green” movement.
Politicians are determined to destroy the economy in pursuit of the radical climate change agenda.
But Tucker Carlson revealed one ugly truth Democrats deliberately ignore about electric vehicles.
Democrats are not serious when they talk about climate change.
If they were, they would focus on measures that are actually better for the environment.
For example, nuclear power and natural gas are clean forms of energy that are also efficient.
And the Left’s push for electric vehicles makes no sense considering the mining for the materials is horrible for the environment.
Tucker Carlson laid out exactly why in a devastating monologue.
The Fox News host explained, “Roger McGrath took the time to spell it out recently in Chronicles magazine. As he noted, supplying the materials necessary for the battery of an electric car alone, just the battery, requires, and we’re quoting ‘processing using fossil fuels, of course, of at least 50 tons of ores.’ It takes a lot of energy to process ore. A single battery for an electric car needs at least, ‘30 pounds of lithium, 60 pounds of cobalt, 130 pounds of nickel, 90 pounds of copper, 190 pounds of graphite and roughly 500 pounds of steel, aluminum, [manganese], plastic and other materials,’ all of which are derived from mining. Where’s that mining going to take place? In third-world countries with no environmental regulations whatsoever. How is this good for the environment? Speak slowly so we can understand.”
That’s the dirty little secret about electric vehicles that Democrats desperately try to ignore.
So while politicians are attempting to phase out gas-powered cars, they’re hurting the economy in the process.
Even The New York Times was forced to admit it.
The Times admitted, “Production of raw materials like lithium, cobalt and nickel that are essential to (electronic vehicle) technologies are often ruinous to land, water, wildlife and people.”
The real reason for the “green” push is all about seizing control of the economy.
Carlson added, “They don’t care about the land. They don’t care about the water. They don’t care about the wildlife and they don’t care about the people. It’s not about that at all. It’s a religion. It’s about making them feel like good people and increasing their control over you. Period.”
Electric vehicles are terrible for the environment.

People need to understand that the Left’s radical environmentalist movement is not about saving the planet – it’s about controlling it.
