Electric Bus Burst Into Flames, One Day After Connecticut Gov. Requires Future State Vehicles to Run On Electric Power

By Jim Hoft

On the morning of July 23, during the heatwave that swept the East Coast, a new electrically powered public transportation bus caught on fire as it sat in the bus parking lot, according to fire officials.

The Hamden Fire Department was dispatched to the CT Transit bus depot in order to extinguish the fire that had spread throughout the electric bus.

“Lithium-ion battery fires are difficult to extinguish due to the thermal chemical process that produces great heat and continually reignites,” the fire officials said in a statement

The incident came one day after Governor Ned Lamont (CT-D) announced a new State Law that requires Connecticut to transfer all State vehicles to electrical power.

  1. See, this is a great example of the DISHONEST discussion ongoing with the environmental activists, their progressive political supporters and media enablers. Anything “Green” has no critical analysis. ONLY potential upside is considered with no apparent knowledge (or curiosity) about the potential DOWNSIDE of so called “clean energy.” Meanwhile, we have NO CAPACITY to consider the myriad of BENEFITS that have been bestowed on modern civilization by fossil fuels. The focus (solely) is on the negative impacts. Most complex challenges have a host of “trade-offs.” Until we can start having an honest conversation about the realities of energy imperatives and attendant environmental protections, we will continue to engage in DUMB policy making.
