In another blow to the insane madness that the Democrats are trying to force on us with their electric car wet dreams, it looks like what is happening now is a wet nightmare because when electric car batteries are exposed to saltwater, they have a habit of blowing up.
Yes, it appears that, according to American Wire News, a Florida fire department is warning EV owners about the risks that have been triggered by Hurricane Idalia.
According to Palm Harbor Fire Rescue, saltwater exposure can “trigger combustion in lithium-ion batteries.”
The fire department wrote on their Facebook page last week, “If you own a hybrid or electric vehicle that has come into contact with saltwater due to recent flooding within the last 24 hours, it is crucial to relocate the vehicle from your garage without delay. Saltwater exposure can trigger combustion in lithium-ion batteries. If possible, transfer your vehicle to higher ground.”
That means if you’re trying to escape a hurricane – or live through it’s aftermath, you might be in trouble.
I guess having your car go up in flames is just something that people living on the east, south and west coasts are going to have to deal with when our fossil fuel vehicles are banned from existence.
Even the Weather Channel, one of the government’s most fervent supporters of their climate change hoax, has had to admit that “some” electric vehicles in Florida are bursting into flames after coming into contact with saltwater.
Electric car batteries catching on fire is not a very good marketing plan to sell the Democrat EV cars now or in the future. But then again, that’s why they aren’t “marketing” them – they’re mandating them and getting rid of any alternatives – and using our taxpayer dollars to pay for it.
