Electric cars get renewed push on Capitol Hill


Recommended Posts

Daily Caller:

American Values President Gary Bauer and former Commandant of the Marine Corps General James T. Conway are teaming up in support of electric vehicles.

Bauer and Conway are part of the Energy Security Leadership Council (ESLC), a group of business and military leaders put together by Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE). SAFE is focused on reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil and finding an energy alternative. The council is chaired by FedEx President and CEO Fred Smith and General P.X. Kelley, former Marine Corps Commandant and former member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

With pages of statistics and a realistic take on America’s dependence on oil, members of the ESLC lobby elected officials for an effective alternative energy policy. They argue that dependence on oil threatens America’s national and economic security.

The council is currently focused on lobbying elected officials to support the Electric Drive Vehicle Deployment Act of 2011, sponsored by Republican Rep. Judy Biggert of Illinois and Democratic Reps. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Anna Eschoo of California.snip

What on earth do they plan to power the needed power plants with? How do they plan to handle the toxic waste of worn-out batteries. Why is this a good idea?
