We are flooded with BEVs that few people want. More sign that the BEV fad is coming to an end. In the end, it is just a capitalistic system pretending to be green, and works by forcing consumers and governments to pay for it all. The system itself can only operate by overproducing and has no regard for the environment.

A group of bipartisan U.S. lawmakers are advocating for a risky proposition to allow Taiwan to build American-designed weapons systems in order to clear a $19 billion backlog of hardware promised to the country. Supply chain issues and work shortages have plagued the deliveries of tanks, missiles, jets and drones to Taiwan while the nation looks to counter China’s surging influence in the region. Some experts say allowing Taiwan to build the systems could leave them vulnerable to intelligence leaks to China. Politico has more on the proposal.
