MLG and her enviro allies on EV’s: “It’s inevitable, but also must be subsidized and mandated”

Yesterday, MLG and some of her radical friends like Jim DesJardins, the executive director of the Renewable Energy Industries Association, held an event at which (according to KOB TV) they “discussed green energy and how the state can become less dependent on the oil and gas industry.”

If they are talking limiting usage of oil and gas in New Mexico, they may be able to move the needle slightly, but if they mean making New Mexico government and the economy less dependent on oil and gas, that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

But, mostly the Gov. and her allies talked subsidies and mandates for EV’s. According to the article, here are just a few of the subsidies and mandates for EV’s:

$100 million for EV charging.

$20 billion being distributed by the EPA for renewable energy initiatives.

The Inflation Reduction Act will provide $369 billion for states and how NM can get some of that cash.

As usual, the “transition” was deemed “inevitable” which in a sane world would preclude the need for massive subsidies and mandates. But, we don’t live in a sane world, so Jim DesJardin said, “it is going to happen so we need to plan for it, we need to take advantage of it, we need to do everything we can to make it so it can be done as best as possible for the state of NM.”
