Hurricane Ian Annihilates Biden’s Green Agenda: Electric Vehicles ‘Spontaneously Combust Along Florida’s Roadways’

Biden and his Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg have made it their sole mission to “go green” by eliminating every vehicle in America that uses fossil fuels and replace them with all electric vehicles (EVs). Buttigieg even called for a “nationwide ban on gas cars.”

Well, it’s ironic that Hurricane Ian showed just how dangerous and wrong headed this policy truly is.

Watch this report from Fox 35 in Orlando, Florida:

Fox 35 reported,

A top Florida state official warned Thursday that firefighters have battled a number of fires caused by electric vehicle (EV) batteries waterlogged from Hurricane Ian.

EV batteries that have been waterlogged in the wake of the hurricane are at risk of corrosion, which could lead to unexpected fires, according to Jimmy Patronis, the state’s top financial officer and fire marshal.

“There’s a ton of EVs disabled from Ian. As those batteries corrode, fires start,” Patronis tweeted Thursday. “That’s a new challenge that our firefighters haven’t faced before. At least on this kind of scale.”

“It takes special training and understanding of EVs to ensure these fires are put out quickly and safely,” he continued in a follow-up tweet. “Thanks to [North Collier Fire Rescue] for their hard work.”

Where in the world is Pete Buttigieg when you need him?

The hardest-vacationing man in the Biden regime smiled and avoided definitively answering questions when probed by host Neil Cavuto on Fox News’ “Your World” Tuesday. But what are the transportation secretary’s thoughts on earth, wind and FIRE?

His beloved initiative to make electric vehicles commonplace – a currently failed endeavor he is likely to cleverly disown posthaste – isn’t going quite as planned.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, reports indicate that local fire departments in Florida are busy extinguishing car fires from electric vehicles abandoned in the storm.

Evidently, the batteries in the water-logged autos begin to rapidly corrode and then combust, explained Jimmy Patronis, Florida’s chief financial officer and state fire marshal on Twitter.

“There’s a ton of EVs disabled from Ian,” he tweeted. “As those batteries corrode, fires start.”

“It takes special training and understanding of EVs to ensure these fires are put out quickly and safely,” Patronis tweeted.

Here’s another report from the North Collier Fire Rescue District in Florida,

In another report the Washington Post in an article titled A Tesla was in a junkyard for three weeks. Then it burst into flames by noted,

A white Tesla Model S was sitting in a Rancho Cordova, Calif., wrecking yard earlier this month — having been severely damaged in a collision three weeks earlier — when it suddenly erupted in flames.

When firefighters arrived, the electric car was engulfed, according to the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District. Every time the blaze was momentarily extinguished, the car’s battery compartment reignited, the fire department wrote in an Instagram post. Firefighters and wrecking yard workers tried turning the car on its side to aim water directly onto the battery pack. But “the vehicle would still re-ignite due to the residual heat,” the department wrote.

So they tried something else: They used a tractor to create a pit in the dirt, managed to get the car inside, then filled the hole with water. That allowed the firefighters to submerge the battery pack and ultimately extinguish the fire, which burned hotter than 3,000 degrees, Capt. Parker Wilbourn, a fire department spokesman, told The Washington Post.
