EVs cause MORE pollution than gasoline engines? Study says yes!

Joe Biden’s agenda for American consumers includes those “zero-emission vehicles.” Electric cars. He wants to force two-thirds of new vehicles in America to be all-electric by 2032.

But they’re not “zero-emissions,” and in some ways actually cause more environmental damage that gas-powered vehicles, suggests a study.

The emission problems come on top of already known problems with EVs, such as that they are destroying America’s auto industry, they often go very short distances before recharging is required, especially in colder locations like Montana, Minnesota, and such. They are more dangerous in accidents because of the massive weight of their batteries.

They even pose a threat to parking garages as those structures were not engineered to support the additional weight of hundreds of much-heavier vehicles.

But the pollution they emit now is a factor, too.

The Washington Examiner noted the results are from a study by Emission Analytics.

It was done in 2022 “but resurfaced in a Wall Street Journal op-ed on Sunday, [that] indicated that tires and brakes on electric vehicles release 1,850 times more particle pollution than modern tailpipes, which use exhaust filters.”

The explanation for the cause of concern?

“Electric vehicles are often heavier than regular gas-powered cars due to the weight of their engines, which can reach 1,850 pounds. The heavier engines place extra weight on the tires and cause them to wear out faster, according to the study. A 1,100-pound engine can cause more than 400 times the emissions as direct exhaust emissions,” the report said.

And because of cleaner fuels, cleaner engines and such, “Particle pollution from tires is the biggest contributor to vehicle-related emissions.”

The Examiner noted the reality of EVs and their pollution “throws a kink” in Biden’s claims that EVs are “zero emission” cars.

According to the New York Post, the original study concluded as heavier cars drive on light-duty tires, often made with synthetic rubbers from crude oil, they deteriorate and release harmful chemicals into the air.

On average, EVs are 30% heavier that gas-powered cars, so brakes and tires take a beating.

It explained the study confirmed “tire wear emissions on half a metric tonne of battery weight in an EV are more than 400 times as great as direct exhaust particulate emissions.”

And while that weight actually is about 1,100 pounds, the battery in a Tesla Model Y, the most popular EV in the U.S., weighs in at 1,836 pounds.

Nick Molden, of Emissions Analytics, explained to the Post, “You have a tradeoff. At the moment, the political agenda is very strong towards climate change reduction. EVs do deliver about a 50% reduction in CO2 — that [affects] climate change.”

However, he said, “You have this downside of EVs that increases particle pollution. Air pollution is about what we breathe and the health effects.”

Tires, the report said, “are made up of a lot of nasty chemicals” that can boost the danger of health problems like heart attacks, asthma, low birth weight and more.

Officials in EV-promoting California suggested automakers could “offset” a half a ton of battery by cutting the weight of other parts of the car, the report said.

“Though the agency didn’t specify how.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
