Coal Powered Cars: How ‘Green’ Are they Really?

22 Apr

Loads of people seem to think that electric cars are the best thing for the environment.  Don’t they know that

1) most electricity comes from coal fired plants?
2) coal pollutes more than oil and gasoline?
3) coal too is a limited natural resource?
4) fossil fuels are not the way forward?

Unless your electric car is juiced up from a nuclear plant, you’re not all that green after all. But self delusion is always fun, isn’t it!

    Coal plants also give off more radiation than nuclear plants!
