'Ban the Internal Combustion Engine': Secret emails reveal true agenda behind today's CAFE announcement
Emails expose Biden NHTSA chief's radical agenda
Today the Biden Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that they are beginning the process of “updating” fuel economy standards for passenger cars and trucks.
According to a press release, NHTSA’s proposal includes a “2% per year improvement in fuel efficiency for passenger cars, and a 4% per year improvement for light trucks, beginning in model year 2027 and ramping up through model year 2032, potentially reaching an average fleet fuel economy of 58 miles per gallon by 2032."
In addition, it includes a “10% improvement per year for commercial pickup trucks and work vans (with gross vehicle weight ratings of more than 8,500 pounds and less than 14,001 pounds) beginning in model year 2030 and ramping up through model year 2035.”
These draconian measures in the name of “efficiency” would effectively make electric vehicles mandatory in this country by forcefully limiting Americans’ options. In the name of fighting climate change, the Biden administration is seeking to bend the American people to their will through government coercion. They don’t trust us to make our own choices, and so have decided to make our choices for us.
This isn’t speculation. We know the plan is to eradicate gas vehicles because we have obtained emails by NHTSA Acting Administrator Ann Carlson revealing a desire to do just that.
In an email thread from 2020, when Carlson was a UCLA professor, under the subject line “Looking to chat about Newsom order banning gas car sales,” Carlson spoke of a “ban on engines” that “help California achieve the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone pollution, something very difficult to achieve as long as conventional vehicles remain on the road. And it would help the state achieve its climate goals.”
In another email from 2020, Carlson claimed it was “impossible” for California to achieve its climate goals without “moving away from the internal combustion engine.”
“That she is acting NHTSA chief (for now) it is clear Carlson is working to impose this radical agenda - banning the internal combustion engine - one that, if implemented, would mean thousands of Americans losing their jobs, higher gas prices, and our nation becoming vulnerable to energy blackmail by countries like Russia, Iran, and Venezuela - is a terrifying abuse of power,” said AAF president Tom Jones. “Her radical motives show no compassion or care for regular Americans who will have to bear the costs.”
