United States has been giving out statements that it is going to be the leader in renewable energy and the clean and green movement. With major plans set for implementation on the field, the world believes the claim of the United States.
However, when dug further into the reality of this clean and green United States the truth found is somewhat contradictory to the huge claims made by the officials and the administration. As stated by a Consumer Report 26 states in the United States charge fees for Electric Vehicles and when further analyzed it showed that 11 of these were charging more fees than what a conventional gas-powered vehicle has top pay to the state. This new piece of information found raises questions on the administrations, are they really concerned about climate change? Are they really trying to make the world a better place? Also, among those 11 states 3 states charge twice of the gas-powered car fees. With the claims of the United States to dominate the renewable energy market, this kind of fee is definitely what is promoting its 100 percent clean and green approach.
There should be substantial tax cuts and price cuts on the Electric Vehicles to promote their use and make the shift from fossil run vehicles. With the climate deteriorating day by day and United States amounting to a huge share of harmful emissions, it is important that the United States take important steps to build a clean and green economy rather than levying huge taxes on sustainable infrastructure and transportation.
