Amsterdam May Ban All Fossil Vehicles By 2030 — Legacy Auto Lobby Responds With FUD

May 4th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

New Study: EV More Polluting than Petrol??! Not So Fast…

February 16th, 2012 | by Breath on the Wind

The Devil is always in the details. It is being widely reported on the web that a new University of Tennessee study shows that, when electric cars are charged by grid power where the energy mix is 90% coal, they are more polluting than petrol vehicles. But when we take a look at the actual study, several clarifications come to light that tend to discredit the study and marginalize the results
