“Ban with No Plan” Shifts Emissions from Tailpipe to Smokestack

Posted on November 27, 2023


The CT Democrats’ plan to ban the sale of gas-powered vehicles in Connecticut by 2035 is the epitome of the classic bait and switch, with car emissions being shifted from their tailpipe to a smokestack.

Fully electric vehicles do not produce CO2 when operating on our streets, but manufacturing the massive batteries needed to move them along certainly does.  Instead of openly discussing the impacts from manufacturing these supposed Earth-saving wonder machines, nebulous terms and hand-picked data are used to to bolster the view of CT Democrats.

If there was a true environmental bonus to switching to EVs, why are they so willing to “rob Peter to pay Paul?”

The legislature’s Regulations Review Committee, of which I am a member, will be taking up this issue on November 28th. I encourage you to contact Democrats who serve on the Committee, and urge them to disapprove the ban, sending the matter to the full legislature for debate and vote.
