When they get down to bullshit like this you know the argument is over.
I wonder how much co2 is released by manufacturing batteries for gas engine cars?
Tesla car battery production releases as much CO2 as 8 years of gasoline driving http://forums.canadiancontent.net/cl...-releases.html
A major effort by Albertans in cleaning up a natural occurring situation.
... You're welcome
I guess you would need to compare tesla battery production to Ford gas tank and engine production co2 release.
You know, if you were trying to make a logical sort of comparison
Don't like the answer?
Take a read of the OP article in this thread.
Tesla car battery production releases as much CO2 as 8 years of gasoline driving
It says 8 years of "Driving", not how much carbon is released making a big, effing, cast-iron Buick power plant. Wouldn't that be more equivalent?
.. You do understand that all of the copper wire required for the motor, let alone the rare Earths mining required for the batteries also expend a great deal of GHGs to acquire from the ground (let alone the mfg process), right?
And by 2040 electric will still be less than 50% of vehicles.
Where are the iron, copper, aluminium and REE mines that are required to build a whirlygig?
Oh and where will the gear box oil come from?
When "they" get down to saying the argument is over, you know it's bullshit.
