Joe Biden has been pushing for electric vehicles while lackadaisically ignoring sky-high gas prices. Now he might be roadblocked by the new anti-slave labor law.
The Daily Caller reported, The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act requires proof that any products coming from Xinjiang, one of the main sources of products crucial in making batteries, were free of forced labor, the NYT reported. The law goes into effect on Tuesday.
Joe Biden wants half of the nation’s vehicles to be emission-free by 2030 while seeming to forget the fact that the energy used to power electrical grids, where electric vehicles are charged is often times powered by fossil fuels and lots of emissions.
Biden also seems to reject Elon Musk, a pioneer of the electric vehicle industry. Elon owns one of them if not the most successful electric vehicle companies in the world, Tesla. Tesla is a Goliath on the EV front but Musk is seldom invited to EV conventions at the White House.
Instead, companies that produce cars with conventional engines are invited, most of whom do not, have barely produced EVs. Among them are companies like Ford whose revenue is declining creating another roadblock for the administration.
