  1. Dark Brandon creating huge amount of jobs in the auto industry, mining, solar PV installation, the utility sector, electricians, battery manufacturing, etc.

    And this greatly increases national security and economic security by reducing our exposure to oil price shocks that happen repeatedly (70s oil embargo, Iraq invasion of Kuwait, Gulf war, 9/11, Iraq war, 2007/2008 oil price surge, Ukraine war, etc.).

  2. While I’m happy we have someone in the government supporting EV adoption/shift, I can’t help but feel that the rabid anti-Biden crowd will use these words to double down *against* EVs.

    Sort’ve like a “damned if you do/damned if you don’t” type of situation.

  3. I’m not sure I’d call it “promoting” EVs if all they’re doing is replacing environmental policy such as the previous EV tax credit with protectionist policy that essentially torpedoes the long-range EV market in the short term and actually incentives inefficient short-range PHEV SUVs over pure EVs in the long term.

  4. Renewable energy is not going anywhere on it’s own wind and solar both require massive battery farms to provide power when they cannot produce power one of the largest battery farms which occupies several buildings about the size of a football field could only power 30000 homes for a bit over an hour you want the safest energy source with the lowest pollution you need nuclear as a redundancy for renewable energy that is where we need to start
