    The global hype around EVs is substantial and it is branded as a zero emission and environmentally friendly transportation alternative to fossil-fuel burning vehicles. It is very important to understand that this may not always be the case. EVs use electricity and therefore particulate matter pollution and greenhouse gas emissions due to EVs are tied to the source of electricity. The net environmental impact of driving EVs in Norway or Sweden will be vastly different from driving the exact same vehicle in India or China.

    You know, people forget that there is an energy source involved in all "environmental" solutions. We're just exchanging one problem for another sometimes.

    In the case of electric vs. fossil fuel, the first law of thermodynamics comes in to play. That electricity is being generated somehow and I suspect it is not a renewable source.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    That is the exact point of the article. Itís going to be coal.
