Heartland Institute Senior Fellow and Director Steve Milloy, the founder of Junkscience.com, was on Fox News Channel's Ingraham Angle on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 to talk about the folly of the electric vehicle (EV) push. It's about controlling you, not saving the planet, Milloy said. The internal combustion engine, which allows you to fill up your gas tank and drive 400 miles in any direction, is an instrument of freedom. The EV is an instrument of control -- and if you don't think the government isn't figuring out a way to gain the ability to turn off your EV remotely, you are not paying attention. Milloy also points out that all the transition to EVs will do is make us more dependent on China. That's where all the materials for the "green energy revolution" comes from. Steve also has fun talking about ditching beef for bugs, something the New York Times is pushing. "They are crazy."

James Taylor, president of The Heartland Institute, and Linnea Lueken, research fellow for The Heartland Institute, give testimony in Pennsylvania regarding the mining of rare Earth elements. Construction of renewable energy sources including wind and solar require rare Earth elements. When we push policies advancing renewables, we subsequently are creating greater demand for rare Earth elements. Rare Earth elements are also critical to the United States military. China controls much of the global supply of rare Earth elements. Thus, our reliance on China is only growing as we push ill-advised policies. James and Linnea's testimony covered the economic impacts, and legislative feasibility, of beginning new domestic rare Earth element mining operations.
