And this might not just be about fossil fueled vehicles, but, EVs. They really do not like that you have the freedom to travel

Top Climate Aide Suggests Biden Admin ‘Absolutely’ Needs To Find More Ways To Reduce Americans’ Reliance On Cars

President Joe Biden’s top climate adviser suggested that he wants the administration to more expediently pursue ways to decrease reliance on driving in a conversation about Biden’s electric vehicle (EV) policies on Wednesday.

White House Climate Adviser Ali Zaidi suggested that finding ways to get Americans to live closer to where they work, and therefore rely on vehicle travel less altogether, is something that the Biden administration “absolutely” needs to address with greater haste. He made the comments in response to a question about whether the government needs to speed up its green energy projects and permitting at a Wednesday event, hosted by The Washington Post at its headquarters, focusing on choices consumers and businesses can make to reduce emissions.

“Are you worried about meeting the emissions targets and the amount of investment, or, let’s say dependence, on (electric vehicle sales) growth in the plan to reduce emissions?” Washington Post columnist Bina Venkataraman asked Zaidi.

“On the question of whether we need to go faster, I think the answer is absolutely yes,” Zaidi said in response. “Whether it’s on electric vehicles, whether it’s on electrification, cleaning up rail and marine, whether it’s the future of sustainable aviation— biofuels, hydrogen, electric— every single mode, every single segment of transportation. And by the way, that includes increasing choices for transit, micro-transit and being able to live closer to where you need to work and go.”

For all those yammering about Trump being a Fascist, this is Fascist. The US government has zero business in dictating where we live or travel. It’s not a power delegated to the federal government, and damned sure the Executive has zero authority to push this on people. It would be fun if Trump went out there and said the same thing, and see how the Credentialed Media and elected Democrats respond.

Anyhow, here’s Joe today

It’s so long I had to make two snips. That’s a serious amount of fossil fueled airplane trips, and then the giant motorcades. But, you should be forced out of your private vehicle.

BTW, I told you that the climate cult elites would be trying to force people out of all private vehicles even before EVs become the predominate ones.

    Assigned living quarters! Not only will this mean we’ll be required to able to use buses or trolleys or trains to get to work, but with Proper Social Planning, we can force racial integration of neighborhoods. After all, if we could assign students schools based on their race, why can’t we assign families residences by the same logic.

    Of course, the well-to-do, the same ones who could afford private schools to avoid forced busing, will also be able to choose where to live as well.

    Sounds like a busy day for Mr teach’s laziest President.

    On finding ways to reduce commutes to work…

    William Teach: For all those yammering about Trump being a Fascist, this is Fascist.

    How is that fascist??? Are tax breaks fascist? Are planned developments fascist? Is mass transit fascist?

    Fascism is a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist political ideology and movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition

    We spend billions of taxpayer monies expanding superhighways to LENGTHEN commutes from outer suburbs.

      Dear child, when government determines where and how you may live and travel…

      It doesn’t have to be strictly Fascist, but it IS authoritarian.

      Once again you demonstrate no knowledge of the concept.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Dear Stormy,

        My point was that government can ENCOURAGE and even INCENTIVIZE actions. As a nation we have built freeways in and around cities subsidizing urban businesses, bisecting city neighborhoods, and encouraging suburban and far suburban communities – this doesn’t address its utility or wisdom, just presents a fact. Would one choose to live 40 miles out if the way to work was 2-lane stop and go?

        All US cities and counties have zoning laws. Isn’t that telling you how and where you can live?

        Would contrasting a 2 hr rush hour commute to a 20 min commute influence where you live? Would 50 cent/gal gas vs $5.00 a gallon gas influence your decision? Significant freeway tolls to pay for the roads you use?

        More and more jobs are becoming partly or completely remote. We know a couple where the hubby works 100% from home and his wife from home 3 days a week. A former colleague in PA just took a job in DE – fully remote! Should this be encouraged?

        Is that authoritarianism?

  6. Dan says:

    The goal is the complete end of privately owned transportation. They want ALL of us 100% dependent on public transport. You don’t pose much of a threat to their hold on power when you have to ask permission to travel anywhere beyond your immediate neighborhood. What they are doing isn’t really complicated. Evil yes, but not complicated.

  7. Dana says:

    Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY 4) tried, and failed, to stop the mandate for a ‘kill switch’ in all automobiles sold in the US beginning with the 2026 model year. The legislation would mandate ‘passive’ sensors in an automobile which could “passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired, and prevent or limit vehicle operation if an impairment is detected.”

    We all know that said kill switches would do more than that; they would also be engineered to allow the police or other government agencies to track all vehicles, and shut them down if they did whatever Big Brother decided should not be done, such as driving too many miles.

    I would expect, and completely support, the development of businesses specializing in disabling that technology. F(ornicate) the fascists.

  8. L'Roy White says:

    You just make stuff up all the time. Superhighways are for long distance trips not commutes.

    • To be honest here, both my wife and I used I-476, the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, to commute to jobs, her in Allentown, and me all the way to the Philly burbs.. That enabled us to live where we wanted to live. Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, would have a much poorer population if the only jobs to which people could get were in Carbon County.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Mr White: Superhighways are for long distance trips not commutes.

      Uh huh. So those 10 mile backups every morning and afternoon around every US city (you know, where most of the people live) are because of long distance travelers?? Or… do the expressways of 4, 6 even 8 lanes each way enable American workers to live 10, 20 and 40 miles from work and drive there and back, often alone in the their F-150, 5 days a week? Who pays for those roads? Who pays for global warming?

      Conservatives oppose any and all subsidies for mass transit. Ever taken the “L” from O’Hare to downtown Chicago? You’re moving as traffic is stalled.

      I had a colleague years ago who lived in Farmington MO and would drive 75 miles via I-55 to I-270 and I-64 to and from work in west St Louis county (it was a high paying job).

      • L'Roy White says:

        Elwood for God’s sake take your head out of your ass. I stated that superhighways were made for long distance trips not commuting. I didn’t say that they couldn’t be used for commuting only that that was not their original intent. As Dana stated he used interstates in his travels to work. I’ve seen I-95 in Philadelphia stopped up with commuters. But that’s not why I95 was built from Maine to Florida now was it? That was built for traveling the East Coast wasn’t it?

        You really are a troll LG Brandon is right.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Mr White,

          Solid argument!!

          Perhaps you forgot what you typed, but thank the gods (and Mr Teach) it’s preserved in black and white!!

          Superhighways are for long distance trips not commutes.

          Only a moron would believe that the freeways would only be used for long distance travel, and President Eisenhower was no moron!

          So, please calm down. Clearly the interstates are more used for commuting than long distance trips. They also benefit the long-haul trucking industry. Remember those placards on the backs of trailers – this truck pays $5265 a year in highway use taxes!!
