AN Online commentator has lashed out at electric cars, saying they are not an alternative to regular fuels.
The social media user known as “Zecaptainsrevenge” vented their fury in a thread on Reddit about EVs.
They started off by claiming EVs were being “forced” on people around the world.
The commentator said: “I hate the fact that they are being forced down our throats. No problem with ev option available for those who want them (currently less than 10 per cent despite the pressure).
“I'd be open to hybrid, which would emissions and gas prices without infringing on people's freedoms . Sadly, such infringement is the main goal of the Gas Bad Brigade.”

They wrote: “I agree we could do better than current gas cars, but the current lineup of evs is a step backward.

“When a viable alternative is ready, people will switch organically. They did not have to tax/ban horses.
“Nobody is pro pollution, if the fearmongering and doomerism stopped, scientists could work on an actual solution, not just slapping something ‘green’ together overnight.”
However, they also thought that because alternatives weren’t ready yet, it was necessary to continue to rely on gas for the time being.
Another commentator who supported them added: “You make too much sense, that doesn’t sit well with the climate alarmists. This was never about saving the planet, though. And we know this.”
With “Zecaptainsrevenge” replying: “Yup, it’s a cult, the members are deranged and actually want to kill people to save polar bears.”
