Some good articles out there on on Co2 emissions, Internal Combustion vs Electric cars.
Sounds like if your electricity is all coal generated, Co2 cost per mile in an electric car isnt much better, or worse, than what your average gas powered vehicle produces, whereas that improves with natural gas, and ultimately becomes zero with solar, wind and nuclear.
This leads me to wonder if everyone switched to electric cars, would wind and solar alone meet the demand? I'm thinking realistically nuclear is going to play a big part in becoming truly C02 free once electric becomes the norm.
