European Union adopts ban on gas-powered cars beginning in 2035

Ghoti Ichthus

Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
An electric car goes only 300 or so miles without a charge. Are we going to have charging stations instead of gas stations in the future? And how long will it take to charge an electric car?
This is bad, bad idea.

Supposedly 9 seconds according to a tech piece on the news a few weeks ago.

There are a lot of publicly accessible charging stations here (most require cc), plus the private ones people have in their garages. Some employers provide free charging for employee electric vehicles (including e-bikes) and plug-in hybrids :smile

Just wait until it's -50F and no one has a fuel-burner to drive. Electric vehicle batteries have been having "issues" when it gets really cold. It's one thing to not be able to get to work in a non-critical industry or position, but quite another to not be able to get to the ER when having a stroke or heart attack because the ambulance won't run :mad

It is important to remember the EU has a much better public transit system. Getting rid of cars may not be as difficult there as it would be in the US.

There will still be a need for individual transportation for elderly and disabled, at least to and from mass transit, and even then, some wouldn't be able to use mass transit.

Unless, of course, there are no more elderly or disabled, as seems to be a goal of some medical and housing policies :apostasy :mad

Hopefully we'll be in the Millennial Reign by then.
My hope too.

But even if He tarries, it seems to me the EU is committing suicide, no obvious Divine intervention necessary. At one time I thought for sure the EU was going to be instrumental in the reign of the Antichrist. It still might be at that, but now I'm not so sure.

Best just to allow events to unfold and trust in Christ.

Besides hyper-inflation, energy generation is probably the single most important element of the Great Reset. By migrating virtually all energy consumption to the power grid they are creating a single lever of control. If we think that gas has a compounding effect through the economy now (i.e. when gas goes up, so does everything else because how integrated it is in every level of the economy), just wait until electricity becomes essentially the singular source of energy in the economy. The dependence on--and economic impacts of--LNG, petroleum and current electrical consumption will be rolled into one price point.

100 years ago if electricity was too expensive or unavailable, you burned a candle or fire when it was cold or dark, and went on your merry way. In about 15 years time, if they switch off the electric grid, most people won't be able to travel, eat, heat their homes, navigate, access knowledge....basically function. If I were the Man of Perdition that would sound like a pretty ideal system to coerce people into worshipping the antichrist, jus' sayin'.

Agree. I think all the states that have set timelines within the next 5-10 years will likely find it impossible to enforce, or even attempt to have the ban in place. Its more like wishful thinking by idiots.

This all depends upon the true state of oil reserves. If we are near "out" of oil, the electric cars make sense, BUT only with massive investment and building of nuclear power stations.

That said, I can remember the oil embargo of the 1970s and the promise we would be flat out of oil by 1990.... thirty years ago.
