Image of the Day: Electric Vehicle Irrationality

As Congress considers the so-called "Clean Future Act," which would unfairly allow utilities to pass the cost of electric vehicle charging stations that overwhelmingly benefit the rich to all utility customers, it's worth highlighting how even the New York Times acknowledges how impossible "Green New Deal" dreams for EVs really are:

Rush-Hour Traffic Drives Lawsuit Print
Wednesday, July 30 2014

A New Jersey woman is suing her former employer on grounds that her employer failed to make accommodation for a disability that prevented her from driving in rush-hour traffic.

Andrea DeGerolamo of Berlin, New Jersey, is suing Fulton Financial Corp. for wrongful termination. According to news reports, DeGerolamo took medical leave from the company for anxiety and depression, which, her lawsuit states, "was especially aggravated by crowded roadways experienced during the heavy traffic of rush-hour."  When DeGerolamo returned to work, she cited her medical condition as a qualifying disability that entitled her to a modified work schedule that would avoid rush-hour traffic. The company approved DeGerolamo's request to come into work after morning traffic died down, and then leave before the evening rush-hour started.

After returning to work, DeGerolamo was given a reduced work load, which she claims was an unwarranted demotion.  Shortly after, she says she was fired, prompting her lawsuit.

Fulton Financial Corp. declined to comment to The Huffington Post, citing pending legal matters.
