Re: The elephant in the room
Sorry, badly worded by me. Yes the issue of low/zero carbon lecky has been raised but not effectively countered other than "hand waving" and muttering about "lots more windmills".
However, I recall no mention of "cheaper driving = more miles driven". More miles driven means more emissions, so if (just picking numbers from the air to make the illustration easy) an EV charged on our mix of lecky generation had half the CO2 emissions per mile of the IC vehicle it replaces, if it then does twice the miles it will have the same emissions. OK, that's not likely, but it will be a real effect.
