Cold kills city’s electric bus fleet … mandated by ‘global warming’

Scandinavia in recent days has experienced a blast of cold weather like few in recent years. The temperature fell to minus 40 degrees Celsius, which coincidentally is about the same minus 40 on the Fahrenheit scale, a reading not seen regularly even in cold-weather climes like Montana and North Dakota.

Turns out they could use a bit of “global warming” to keep their fleet of electric buses out of the garage.

A Substack report said officials in “the city of Skellefteå where they ‘only’ had -34C this morning, have been investing in electric buses, to save the climate of course! Their goal is to replace all diesel buses with electric as soon as possible.”

But the city was canceling its buses routes “because of the cold weather – the buses have to be parked indoors to warm up. They say that the electric buses are struggling to keep warm in the cold weather.”

The report noted Marie Larsson, chief of the city’s bus operations, explained, “The electric buses will probably be removed from traffic this afternoon because they have very difficult to keep warm when in service…It is clear that the electric buses are affected the most of this extreme cold.”

Asked if diesel buses can manage, she said they could, but pointed out that if such weather conditions continue for long, all transportation is affected.

The report said, “So it is too cold for the new electric buses. They invest all this time and money into something that doesn’t work because of the weather. Of course, the electric buses use their battery to heat the cabin, meaning that the range is drastically shortened. Is this the real issue here?

“Maybe we need some more global warming so that these electric buses can work properly…?” the report said.

ABC reported snowstorms also were disrupting traffic across the countryside, and Sweden’s town of Kvikkjokk-Årrenjarka had minus 43.6 C (minus 46.5 F), the lowest January reading in Sweden in 25 years.

The report said, “Police across most of Denmark urged motorists to avoid unnecessary trips as wind and snow battered the northern and western parts of the country.”

In nearby countries, winds and flooding were aggravating cold conditions.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: America – long the freest, most prosperous, powerful, altruistic and Christian nation on earth – is on the brink of destruction. Every decent and aware American adult knows this. The evidence is everywhere.

Democrat politicians today overwhelmingly favor late-term abortion up to the very moment of birth – formerly known as “infanticide.” They encourage children too young to drive or vote to have their breasts and/or sex organs amputated in pursuit of a “gender transition” that is both delusional and impossible, and which leads to staggering rates of depression and suicide. They have not just allowed, but ENGINEERED, a full-scale foreign invasion of America across her southern border.

Their standard bearer, President Joe Biden – a senile, pathologically dishonest and epically corrupt career political hack – is destroying America’s economy, energy sector, military, law enforcement, election integrity, national security, Constitution and overall national wellbeing as rapidly as possible. At the same time, Team Biden demonizes and, increasingly, IMPRISONS critics as “violent extremists,” “domestic terrorists,” “white supremacists” and “insurrectionists.” Indeed, they’re currently engaged in an obviously corrupt multi-front legal war against Biden’s chief political rival, Donald J. Trump, in an attempt to send the 45th president of the United States to prison for the rest of his life.

None of this constitutes “politics” in any conventional or traditional American sense. Rather, it is all darkly spiritual. The greatest nation on earth is in the throes of a full-blown spiritual war between good and evil.

The big question, then, is WHAT CAN BE DONE TO SAVE AMERICA? Fortunately, real answers and uncommon wisdom are showcased in the December issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, “CAN AMERICA BE SAVED? The world’s freest, most Christian nation is on the brink of destruction.”

In this very special issue, readers will experience the best and deepest thoughts and strategies on how to restore America to her former goodness and greatness, from some of the nation’s most respected analysts – everyone from Tucker Carlson to Dennis Prager to Victor Davis Hanson to Newt Gingrich and many more.
