EPA Provides Almost $1B to School Districts for Purchasing Electric Buses--• https://www.activistpost.com by B.N. Frank
Electric vehicles (EVs) – including E-bikes – have been associated with battery fires, fires that are difficult to extinguish, investigations, and recalls due to fires (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). In fact, even flooded EVs have been spontaneously igniting!
Other issues associated with EVs include:
Charging them threatens power grids (see 1, 2, 3, 4) and medical implants
EV batteries are difficult and expensive to recycle
Mining for EV battery ingredients IS NOT eco-friendly (see 1, 2)
They emit high levels of biologically and environmentally harmful electromagnetic and wireless radiation (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
A survey published in July revealed that many Americans are still not interested in owning or leasing EVs due to high costs (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) and, of course, other concerns. Nevertheless, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that it will provide $965M for American school districts to buy electric buses to transport students. E-gads!
