Douglas,

According to the US Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, “EVs convert about 59%–62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels. Conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels.”

Tim, Your point is a non sequitur (and of questionable source - USDoE is not trustworthy) in that the original point is about pollution not energy efficiency.

Tim, Tim, Let's talk about the energy and environmental damage from producing the Lithium and Cobalt needed for those batteries that no one knows how to recycle.

Elvira, not to mention the ecologic and environmental catastrophe when they catch on fire and there's no practical method of extinguishing the blaze, as yet.

Google "battery fire in morris illinois", for the alarming particulars.

Roxanne, battery fires can be put out just fine, you just need a different technique.

Douglas, driving electric is still cleaner. That should say all you need about the stupidity of driving ICE cars.

Didi,

Where do you think the electricity come from? Lightning? Most of it comes from burning coal or natural gas. If you use a charging station on the highway, it likely comes from diesel generators.

#47 Also, unless we're going to mine that lithium with plastic Lego trucks, we're going to need lots of steel. And how do we make steel? We burn coal. And where do we get coal? We mine for it. And do we use plastic Lego trucks to find the coal? No, so we're going to need lots of steel.
