Comments Off on Infographic: The Real Emissions of Your Electric Car Will Depend on Where You Live

We’re not exactly sure why, but people love a good myth about clean-tech— e.g. making solar panels uses more energy than they generate, or wind farms actually increase emissions. The most fashionable of late is that producing and charging electric vehicles means heavy carbon emissions . So is it true? In a recent study comparing grid-powered electric car emissions around the world,   Shrink That Footprint  found that electric cars using coal-fired electricity have carbon emissions similar to average gasoline cars. However, when charged with low carbon power, they have just a quarter of the emissions of a typical car, or about half those of the best hybrid. Even when you account for a car’s manufacturing footprint, it turns out that what really matters is the electricity source and where you live can have a big impact.

According to a recent study in Nature Geoscience , global warming seems to have leveled off over the past decade, meaning that some of the most dire climate change predictions could be a thing of the past. But while the news is good, it doesn’t mean that we are out of the danger zone. Global warming is still changing life on the planet as we know it.
