You have no credibility on this issue. You’re trying to gut our emissions laws. Deny climate change. And wreck our environment by burning the dirtiest possible energy sources.

But yeah, those electric vehicles we’re encouraging car companies to manufacture sure are gas guzzlers! https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1181750525596983296 …

Gasoline Prices in the State of California are MUCH HIGHER than anywhere else in the Nation ($2.50 vs. $4.50). I guess those very expensive and unsafe cars that they are mandating just aren’t doing the trick! Don’t worry California, relief is on the way. The State doesn’t get it!

So this dimwit is talking about electric cars a few hours before 1 million Californians are plunged into darkness because of no electricity, hence, no way to charge those car's batteries, right?

Does he understand how they work?

And all those generators powering homes because of the upcoming power outage will be guzzling plenty of gas for the next two or three days.
Lol what

None of these things are related.

The blackouts have nothing to do with electric cars. Or gasoline. It has to do with allowing companies to run unchecked to the point where their infrastructure can cause massive wildfires.

If anything, it’s an argument for more regulation. PG&E should never have been allowed to get to this point
