It's not easy being green
Earlier this week it was shown that harmless CO2 was actually cooling the Earth rather than warming it as environmentalists hysterically bleat. Now we have confirmation of what thinking people have known all along...stupid electric cars have a larger CO2 footprint than regular gas-burning cars because of all the energy required to build the cumbersome, expensive, and short-lived batteries to power them....
From TheAustralian via Michelle Malkin -- 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.
But environmentalists never let a trivial obstacle like reality interfere with the smug self-righteousness they feel for driving an electric car.
