Re: Not On My Dime, Mr. Musk!

Firstly check out the mix of power generation in the US currently. Coal is falling dramatically. As the mix improves, so does your EVs impact. If you buy an IC based car then it never gets any better. Even if your power source is mostly coal then it's been calculated that EVs have less impact than IC.

Secondly large scale, fixed plant can work more efficiently and clean up its emissions better than a mobile IC engine.

Thirdly the emissions created to power an EV are not dumped in the middle of cities or urban areas.

No form of transport is completely green, but EVs are substantially better than IC.
