Interesting article about how oil funded studies seem to forget the amount of pollution that goes into gasoline production.



“Don’t believe the hype about electric vehicles.”

This phrase summarizes studies that claim EVs are actually worse for the environment than gasoline cars and point to the U.S. power grid for proof. However, research shows that the electricity grid is most certainly clean where the majority of electric cars are registered (i.e., on the West Coast). Furthermore, one study in particular forgot to include the emissions from gasoline production — an omission of monumental proportions.
