Biden: "One thing I've found out as the President of the United States, I get to spend a lot of that money … I'm going to start the process where every vehicle in the United States military—every vehicle—is going to be climate-friendly." pic.twitter.com/ggJ1XKPj0T

One reason our military has been so lethally effective is our use of technology and combined arms tactics.
We ride our soldiers into battle in armored vehicles, providing them air and heavy armor support, can move them into position quickly, and can extract them just as fast.
All of that capability is because of diesel and jet fuel.
How do we power an MRAP or Stryker with a battery?
Will infantry have to stop and recharge for several hours every hundred miles of advancement?
How to you provide close air support and medivac without jet fuel?
We can’t get a moderate size municipality to operate effectively with climate friendly vehicles, how are we going to make that work in the US military?
This is such insane and ridiculous bullshit I don’t get why anyone would plant this idea into Biden’s addled brain for him to regurgitate.
But hey, let’s weaken the US military to appease the Leftist climate activists and investment class donors who have money in the green energy industry.
