mx5guynj saidSilly Liberals, the only thing here that's green is the money being made. How much CO2 was released to make the batteries?
The article contains a comparison of A: the battery manufacture + carbon of electricity manufacture vs. B Petroleum burning.
IT is not comparing equal things on each side. They mark up the EV side for "mining" fossil fuels for electricity, but dont count the OIL being mined.
They also do not account for the ENGINE of the gas vehicle or the other 1200 parts that are not in the EV.
The story is invalid and unfair.
