A company called Blink Charging has found a solution to the problem of electric cars running out of electricity.
It is called gasoline.
The Miami-based company has built a “mobile charger” – which generates up to (the usual advertorial weasel wording) 9.6 kilowatts of juice by burning dead dinosaur (or algae bloom or abiotic, whatever you like) liquid juice. At peak output, it can instill up to a whole mile of range into an EV in a minute.
And it only costs $6,500!
As opposed to $3 for a gallon of gas – that instills 20-plus miles of range.
It is almost certain that Blink – the company – is the recipient of taxpayola in some form – perhaps “infrastructure” manna, raining from the heavens after being filched from the pockets of those who may not have an EV themselves but are certainly going to help fund (and recharge) them.
Even if not, someone will be charged – because no one “invests” $6,500 of their own money into a charger unless they expect to be able to charge for it, sufficiently so as to recoup their investment and then some – else it’s not an investment at all. And in that case, it cannot last because there is only so much loss that can be absorbed. A restaurant that doesn’t charge what it costs to serve the food it puts on the table will eventually not be able to put food on the table.
Putting electricity in an EV works on the same principle.
Why not just cut out the middle man? Put the $3 gallon of gas directly into the car – and forget the electricity altogether?
Because the electric car must be coddled and rationalized and supported by any means necessary, however absurd and however expensive.
Because electric cars are “the future,” as decreed by those who stand to profit from them, in terms of money forcibly extracted by government and handed over to those who manufacture EVs and their peripherals, such as gas-burning portable chargers to keep get them moving again (briefly) when they stop moving.
And actually decreed, by law. By the government, which also stands to profit from their confected existing – via the control it acquires over people’s decreased freedom of mobility, which EVs reduce.
As well as limit.
And THAT is the real point of the whole sorry scam, of course. Every time, in every instance, you don’t have to look too far or too hard to figure what the barely-hidden goal is with these festering carbuncles, as opposed to what they claim it is. Because every time, in every instance, it’s always the same: power, and control.
