President Obama made it an administrative priority to "invest" large
amounts of taxpayer money into electric car manufacturers -- to save the
planet from "climate change." In 2011 when he said, "[America will] become the first country to have a million
electric vehicles on the road by 2015." Data shows those calculations are slightly
off track. According to CNSNews,
"all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles ... accounted for less than
half of one percent of the 11.7 million light vehicles purchased in the
U.S. during the last nine months." In other words, the Administration has a long
way to go to reach that one million threshold just 14 months away.
