COMMENT: Critics of the automobile have always claimed that it was gubment subsidies via the interstate highway system that caused the boom in cars. No. As John Heitmann in his book The Automobile in American Life shows, America was a “car culture” long before the interstate freeway system was built in the early 1960s. But the electric car is totally a creature of subsidies, now aided by Biteme’s plan to add 500,000 electric charging stations at federal expense. The EV has not been a problem ecologically or economically until recently when, thanks to subsidies, it has gotten more popular. But now those subsidized sales are going to come face to face with ecological damage of old batteries and the incredible scarcity of lithium. And all the charging stations in the world won’t fix that.
