Electric Cars vs. Carbon Dioxide

I'm not one who thinks that carbon dioxide is pollution but, for those of you that do, here's an interesting piece about electric cars and how much carbon dioxide they produce versus save.

I'm always amazed at the people that think electric cars are going to be pollution free. It smacks of utter stupidity. It uses far more energy to run a motor to make electricity, to charge a battery, then discharge a battery to propel a car, than it does to just run the motor in the car. Why is it that MOST people don't make that connection?

As a bigtime PV user, attesting electric cars don't take but zero carbon dioxide to fill if you ain't count the respiratory action it took to hook up the plug. With them single grown PV cells we talking 30 years until my buggy needs a new setup.

Talking about coal electricity tho, you got all them radioactive isotopes charging the battery. Thinking Fukushima done taught us that electricity ain't free.

Carbon dioxide ain't nothing to worry about tho.

For the record tho, do drive a diesel truck to haul so unless they coming out with cheap electric 4WD it ain't gone matter.

Gary Johnson for pres. too. Ain't down with Cain.

How about a realistic thread of EPD Chief Nielsen's performance? Pro and Con?

Nothing fair and balanced ever comes from Hearaldo.

Fred, you must not have seen the new breakthrough from MIT on battery technology. They have a sludge that is pumped into the battery and when it needs to be charged, it just gets pumped back out and replaced. This turns current battery technology on it's head.
