The End Is Near! (Just Kidding)

Here’s a letter to the Wall Street Journal:


So the same Biden administration that claims that EVs are vital for preventing environmental Armageddon is also ‘exploring’ a further increase of the tariff – that is, the punitive tax – imposed on Americans’ purchases of Chinese-made EVs (“Biden Administration Explores Raising Tariffs on Chinese EVs,” Dec. 21). No further evidence is necessary to prove that Biden & Co. are lying either about their belief in the looming threat of climate change or about the importance of EVs in diminishing this threat (and perhaps about both).

If a man who incessantly proclaims that he’s on the verge of starvation nevertheless refuses an offer of a low-priced meal as he proceeds to tear up his driveway to obtain land for growing his food, you know that his cries of hunger are deceitful.
