Rovinarsi per passare all’auto elettrica, e non ottenere un bel niente per il clima

Published by Tempi

Gli attivisti del clima e i politici ci ripetono in continuazione che le auto elettriche sono più pulite, più economiche e migliori. Molti paesi, tra i quali Germania, Regno Unito e Giappone, entro uno o due decenni proibiranno addirittura la vendita di nuove automobili a gas e a diesel. Ma se davvero le auto elettriche sono così eccellenti, che bisogno c’è di vietare le alternative? E perché dobbiamo sovvenzionare le auto elettriche a ritmo di 30 miliardi di dollari l’anno?

De ha az elektromos autók tényleg olyan jók, miért kell betiltani a benzines és dízeles járműveket? És miért kell évi 30 milliárd dollárral támogatni az elektromos autókat?

The West Says It Will Pay Reparations for Its Alleged Climate Sins

Published by Wall Street Journal
