Scientist Finds Electric Moonbatmobiles Worse for Environment Than Real Cars

Don’t feel bad, Rubio voters. You aren’t the only suckers out there. Think of all the righteous do-gooders who pay extra and suffer all manner of inconvenience in order to save the planet by driving a “green” car — which is worse for the environment than a real car:
Writing in the journal IEEE Spectrum, researcher Ozzie Zehner says electric cars lead to hidden environmental and health damages and are likely more harmful than gasoline cars and other transportation options.
Electric cars merely shift negative impacts from one place to another, he wrote, and “most electric-car assessments analyze only the charging of the car. This is an important factor indeed. But a more rigorous analysis would consider the environmental impacts over the vehicle’s entire life cycle, from its construction through its operation and on to its eventual retirement at the junkyard.”
Political priorities and corporate influence have created a flawed impression that electric cars significantly reduce transportation impacts, he said.
Political priorities and corporate influence are why Government Motors is able to subsidize every Chevy Volt with a staggering $250,000 expropriated from taxpayers — to no constructive purpose.
