Deep Dive (Nov. 2): ‘Electric Vehicles Will Not Help Global Warming’: Diana Furchtgott-Roth on the Climate

by EditorR

One of the big questions these days is: Is the future EV? And what effect do electric vehicles have on the climate? We sat down with Diana Furchtgott-Roth, senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research and former acting secretary for economic policy at the Treasury Department.

Furchtgott-Roth said, “But really, having electric vehicles will not help global warming, and here’s why: the electricity still has to be generated somewhere. When you have gasoline, you observe that there are emissions coming out of the tailpipe. When you have an electric vehicle, it seems very clean. But to produce the electricity to make that electric vehicle go, you have to have a power plant. That power plant runs on maybe natural gas these days, maybe some coal, maybe some oil. You can’t run all the power plants on solar and wind; we just don’t have that technology.”

And what about cancel culture? Not just in Hollywood, but its impacts around the country. We sat down with Amanda Milius, director and producer of “The Plot Against the President,” to hear her thoughts.

Milius said, “I’ve always argued that movies are America’s most important export. And the movies the last 10 years have basically been—all they’re doing is turning the various tropes of Western civilization on its head. Whether that’s something like the woke James Bond, which I’ve talked about before, but … it’s just the opposite. It’s basically taking the character and making it the opposite of everything that it ever was.”
