Tim Goodrich, a veteran with three deployments to the Middle East under his belt, is urging the public to adopt EVs as their mode of transportation in order to help protect not only our environment, but national security as well. Goodrich says that $83 billion alone is spent on protecting oil transit routes. He makes a good argument for why we shouldn't be sending so much of our "$250 billion addiction to oil" overseas. Instead, if we spent that money here on electricity (by driving EVs) we'll get a much better return on our investment in the way of job creation. The first podcast with Rusler is available here, and the second with Goodrich can be heard here.
