We often hear people complaining that electric vehicles are dirty in their own way. Is this true? Or is it a deception spread by those who fear the decline and fall of the oil industry? This video explains things for those who want to know.
We have seen a few statistics in the video that seem slightly inaccurate. The video is actually rather conservative about numbers. For example, the number given for the efficiency of internal combustion engines is actually a little high, making these engines appear a bit better than other sources might make them. But even giving that allowance, electric vehicles are far less polluting, and far less costly to run, than those that burn petroleum products.
In particular, we are told that the video has a miscalculation that should be mentioned. It, and t fact that the new 2021 Tesla model 3 is more efficient than the 2019 version, means 70,250,400 cars can be powered by the energy used to pump oil out of the ground in the US and offshore, not 19,500,000 as mentioned in the video.
