When "they" get down to saying the argument is over, you know it's bullshit.

Electricity production (US): coal (33%), natural gas (33%), nuclear (20%), and hydroelectric power (6%). Wind provided 4.7%, and Solar 0.6%

And by 2040 electric will still be less than 50% of vehicles.

And then there is the Alberta tar sands.


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?


IRON




COPPER



ALUMINIUM



REES

I wonder how much co2 is released by manufacturing batteries for gas engine cars?

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
