What’s clean or green about your electric car?

Nothing, except if it happens to be painted green .

The rare earth magnets required for the electric motors are a environmental nightmare.

The more electric cars that come online the higher the demand for electricity .
we will continue to run power plants that burn coal and fuel oil necessary as long as the demand goes up.

Electricity is anything but clean .
Hydro, damages our rivers and their ecosystems. windmills are toxic nightmares in their production,
And they don’t generate electricity 24/7.

Solar panels? you can’t even recycle solar panels so that’s not even an option.

So what is left? that big old elephant in the room, nuclear power ?
It doesn’t generate any greenhouse gases CO2 or carbon .....

So before you think your “green” you may actually be part of the problem and not part of The solution.

When is the other poster says we need to contaminate thousands of acres with the sulfite an acid that leeches the copper in the nickel out of the rock .
this acid is going to be there for thousands of years and they don’t know how to clean it up .
just so you can have your new “green “ car, that doesn’t sound right .

Remember this? Just a short time ago we cleaned up or coal burning power plants so we no longer have an acid rain killing all of our lakes?
