Waiting for the truth about “green” cars to be suppressed or ignored in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1

Via Electric vehicles not so Green after all « Truth in Religion & Politics:

The Australian, via The Week

ELECTRIC cars could produce higher emissions over their lifetimes than petrol equivalents because of the energy consumed in making their batteries, a study has found.

An electric car owner would have to drive at least 129,000km before producing a net saving in CO2. Many electric cars will not travel that far in their lifetime because they typically have a range of less than 145km on a single charge and are unsuitable for long trips. Even those driven 160,000km would save only about a tonne of CO2 over their lifetimes.

The British study, which is the first analysis of the full lifetime emissions of electric cars covering manufacturing, driving and disposal, undermines the case for tackling climate change by the rapid introduction of electric cars.

As someone who is serious about reducing, reusing and recyling and who drives a 30+ mpg car, I find the Green movement to be a big political power grab that destroys jobs and reduces your spending power.  My lifestyle is much more green than the professional climahypocrites.

It is sad that so many people have been duped by the global warming / global climate change fraud. Think of the millions of kids told by their trusted teachers that Al Gore had it right in his movie.  How many of those teachers ever went back to correct what they children learned?

  1. climahypocrites??? is this a real word? did webster put you on their payroll? do you think there might be more benefit to an electric car than just reducing CO2 emissions? you’re a smart guy. think about it. take your time. it will come to you. i have faith ( and hope).

    ps. started with psalm 60

  2. There seems to be a pattern in the leftist attempts to change the world that the consequences of their world saving policies often create problems of their own which are often worse.

  3. I wonder if they considered any emissions from coal fired plants used to generate electricity when they are plugged in. No, I forgot, those plants are located in someone else’s backyard.

    ❤ climahypocrites.

    Let's see. My car used to get about 27 mpg, but ethanol takes that down to 24, maybe 25 on a good day. I recycle like a fiend and have recycled since elementary school. I keep those reusable bags in my car, have a slew of travel mugs that go to Starbucks with me (no paper cups), take my own mug on the plane, keep the heat low in the winter and rarely use the A/C in the summer…

    …yeah, I hate the "green" movement, because it has zero relationship to the concept of helping the earth. It's all about the government telling me what to do and how to do it, rather than trusting my good judgement about the best way for me to help the earth within my budget and time constraints.

    1. Free market capitalism is the best way to address ecological issues. Take forestry for example. Logging companies are subcontracted by lumber mills to clearcut areas of old growth forest and supply the mill with lumber. The mill then hires college students (like I was) to reforest the cutblock. College students (like I was) then go treeplanting from May to August and make a rate on each tree planted. Prices varied from 10-25 cents, depending on the conditions of the block and the size of the seedlings. An average planter would make $125/day. An above average planter would make $180. The top 2% of the planters would make $300 and up. My best day was $773.30 in my third season. The more you worked, the more money you made, and by extension the environment was better off for it. Over my 4 year planting career (paid my way through college debt free) I planted over 800,000 trees. In 30-40 years, they will be cut again and the cycle will repeat. Stewardship of resources at its finest.
