If all transportation magically converted to zero fossil fuel use, we'd have reduced overall fossil fuel consumption by 30%. Not saying transportation is below the line of scrutiny, just saying EVs aren't the Jesus those in the green religion believe them to be.

I'm a huge fan of EVs, but they're reasons why they represent 3% of vehicle sales in the US despite a $7,500-$10,000 subsidy. It isn't because satanists are pushing hybrids.
