The US South Prepares For The EV Transition

This article describes how a non-profit called Electrify the South is smoothing the way for the EV transition in US southern states.

Framing the EV Transition as PatrioticIn 2022, the definition of being a US patriot is intricate and distinct from the rah! rah! imagery of Cold War America. Today, the US is a nation divided, and much of the US south steadfastly identifies as heterosexual, Christian, and Republican with strong capitalistic, militaristic, and nationalistic values. How does the EV transition fit into this paradigm?

Decisions to buy EVs rather than internal combustion engine (ICE)-powered vehicles have environmental and geopolitical consequences.Factors that predict vehicle choices concernstend to focus on the performance and range of EVs, EV prevalence in general, and beliefs about what statements different vehicle types made about their owners and the owners’ values.

Factors that predict vehicle choices concerns tend to focus on the performance and range of EVs, EV prevalence in general, and beliefs about what statements different vehicle types made about their owners and the owners’ values.S. Global value chains are in the process of localizing and self-interest as policy makers look to support their own stakeholders and agendas.S.

The Hinrich Foundation refers to this state of business as a manifestation of 21st century techno-nationalism. The tit-for-tat missile launches were aimed at demonstrating the ability to respond swiftly and accurately to North Korean attacks, the South Korean military said. read more Last month, the combined forces of South Korea and the United States fired missiles in response to North Korea's launch of ballistic missiles, which the two allies say are violations of U. It’s a kind of “neo-mercantilist mindset” that links technological capabilities to national security, economic prosperity, and socio-political stability. One extension of this mindset is to frame the EV transition as being a patriotic necessity to protect the integrity of the US. It was North Korea's 18th round of missile tests in 2022 alone - a streak that included the country's first launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles in nearly five years . An editorial written on the Electrify the South blog by program manager Dory Larsen argued that electrifying transportation is a pro-American solution. South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol, who took office last month, has vowed to take a tougher line against the North and agreed with U. That is, “Americans should embrace electric vehicles to free ourselves from petrol dictators, enhance national security, reduce fuel costs for consumers, address the climate crisis, and put an end to hazardous offshore drilling,” according to Larsen.S.  Satellite images from March of this year appeared to show construction at a nuclear testing facility in the North Korean town of Punggye-ri.

“Our transportation systems can run on clean, renewable, domestically-sourced energy.” Refuting Big Oil’s call for more drilling as a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Larsen outlines how energy security is not going to be achieved by drilling more but, rather, by a decisive pivot to electric transportation fueled by clean energy.

It will create jobs. and South Korean forces conducted a similar live-fire exercise following North Korea's previous ballistic launches on May 25, which South Korea's military said involved an ICBM flown on medium-range trajectory and two short-range weapons. Yes, it will stabilize the climate. Sign up.S.

Larsen uses Florida as a tangible example.S. EVs in Florida emit over 60% fewer GHG emissions annually compared to gasoline vehicles, including lifetime emissions. Why? Partially, it’s because EVs are significantly more energy efficient than ICE vehicles. South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol said during a speech marking the country's Memorial Day on Monday that his government would pursue"fundamental and practical security capabilities" to counter North Korea's growing nuclear weapons and missile threat. The fuel efficiency, Larsen explains, for most EVs is over 100 MPGe compared to 25.7 miles per gallon for a gas vehicle." Yoon, a conservative who took office in May, has vowed to strengthen the South's defense in conjunction with its alliance with the United States.

These emissions reductions are improving every year, and the energy we do use can be domestically sourced from clean energy within the decade. Reminding the audience that “America leaned in on globalization,” Larsen concludes that drilling for fossil fuels continues to result in dependency and vulnerability instead of strength and autonomy. Yoon's dovish predecessor, Moon Jae-in, who had staked his five-year term on inter-Korean engagement, refraining from missile counter-drills after North Korea resumed ballistic missile tests in 2019 as its diplomacy with the U. “The only true solution is a swift and urgent transition to clean energy and clean transportation.” EVs — for the Children’s Sake When we demonstrate that a policy or program is good for children, it’s difficult even for the most irascible curmudgeons to stand ground. fizzled. To many, the push to provide school bus electrification is less about cutting GHG emissions than it is about helping children.".

Electric school buses could reduce asthma and respiratory disease and boost attendance and test scores. They came after the U. Nearly 20 million US children ride a diesel school bus each day. Diesel buses have interior air pollution that’s up to 12 times higher than ambient levels . aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan concluded a three-day naval drill with South Korea in the Philippine Sea on Saturday, apparently their first joint drill involving a carrier since November 2017, as the countries move to upgrade their defense exercises in the face of North Korean threats. Electric buses don’t emit any tailpipe pollution, eliminating exhaust that is linked to asthma attacks, respiratory illness, and cancer. So .S.
