EV – Law of Unintended Consequences Part 54321


EV – Law of Unintended Consequences Part 54321

It never ends. Here is an article which does the numbers – EVs actually have a carbon footprint as large if not larger than an internal combustion engine. Seems they take a lot more energy to build, and the batteries (you have read about this here before) create a lot of environmental issues not only when they are recycled, but when they are mined. Come on, read the article. The study was funded by the British Government, not really a hotbed of Climate Change Deniers.

The Jaguar Electric previewed at the LA auto show. This is an EV I could get behind.

From the article:

Greg Archer, director of Low CVP, said the industry should state the full lifecycle emissions of cars rather than just tailpipe emissions, to avoid misleading consumers. He said that drivers wanting to minimize emissions could be better off buying a small, efficient petrol or diesel car. “People have to match the technology to their particular needs,” he said.

Really, like that will happen.
