Electric vehicles vs petrol vehicles: their pollution compared

Dear Gov. Newsome and all virtue signaling EV tyrants

Excerpt from abstract:

“Future scenarios of the Spanish electricity grid confirm that a massive introduction of renewable energies would lead to a 19.26% and 27.41% decrease of CO2-eq emissions in 2030 and 2050, respectively. Nevertheless, current and future energy scenario predictions show that electric vehicles will produce an increase in fine particulate matter formation (26%), human carcinogenic (20%) and non-carcinogenic toxicity (61%), terrestrial ecotoxicity (31%), freshwater ecotoxicity (39%), and marine ecotoxicity (41%) relative to petrol vehicles. Transfer of environmental burdens from the use phase to the raw materials extraction and manufacturing phases entails a delocalisation of the impacts, which constitutes a new challenge at environmental, social, and legal levels. This study is the first comparative analysis of the environmental impacts of passenger vehicles in Spain from a cradle-to-grave perspective, considering different impact categories and time scopes.”

Bud’s comment: The only thing harmful thing about water vapor and CO2 (the major greenhouse gases) is the people promoting the global warming /climate change fraud.

    It the same as the issue with Wind and Solar, where the EROEI & LCOE mislead and don’t cover a number of issues like the calculation of contribution of ecological damage in their manufacture from the mining and production of materials needed to construct them and getting the materials to the site and then the actual construction site preparation, concrete and steel etc and indirect costs, and costs that are hard to measure, tend to get left out.
    An interesting paper on (FCOE) or the full cost to society.” FCOE explains why wind and solar are not cheaper than conventional fuels and in fact become more expensive the higher their penetration in the energy system. The IEA confirms “…the system value of variable renewables such as wind and solar decreases as their share in the power supply increases”. This is illustrated by the high cost of the “green” energy transition. All energy [and manufacture] always requires taking resources from our planet and processing them, thus negatively impacting the environment.

    Thanks Bud for this excellent article. This is the type of study that should have been done and needs to be done to determine the best overall energy plan for mankind going forward. Unfortunately, politics keeps getting it wrong and in most cases purposefully ignores rational thought, careful analysis and scientific and other facts. As has been shown many times throughout history, the cost and source of energy is the basis on which civilizations are built.

    🌴Aloha, Larry
