Are electric cars like our Tesla really as green as we think. There is an interesting article from the NY Times.

If this link doesn't work, go to the Times and search for "Union of Concerned Scientists."
They have looked at the "well to wheels" CO2 emission of an electric car using the Leaf as an example. I'm glad I live in the Seattle area (at least half the year) because we have a lot of hydro power.
