Extract from WUWT of a summary of a new report from the Manhattan Institute:
""Short Circuit: The High Cost of Electric Vehicles," argues that critics of the internal combustion engine fail to consider just how clean and efficient new cars are.
"Using a recent forecast prepared by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Lesser's analysis shows that, over the period 2018 - 2050, the electric generating plants that will charge new EVs will emit more air pollution than the same number of new internal combustion engines, even accounting for air pollution from oil refineries that manufacture gasoline.
"What's more, EV subsidies benefit the wealthy at the expense of the poor." http://bit.ly/2IlhA0n
