I already posted the cite that shows the stats for commuting to work,
it's less than 30 miles, well within
the range of current EV's
I bike all the time, but I have a home office and don't have to commute,
but my wife does.
We have already established there are no carbon emissions from Hydro or
Nuclear, of which are
all that's used in my location
Oh I see , "Everyone else is Wrong"
Typical, you can't refute fact, or provide cites to back up your
position, so just swear or yell louder.....
As they used to say in the old days...Plonk.

So let me get this straight. If I live somewhere else (here my power is
nuclear) and I plug my car into that great long extension cord called the grid
and on the other end of that cord, a coal plant ramps up its firing rate just
a little to charge my batteries, then I'm still driving a zero emission car?
Is that what you're trying to tell me, grasshopper?
Can I have some of whatever you're smoking?

The point is the car isn't emitting anything. According to California's
Air Resources Board (CARB), a "Zero-emissions vehicle"
is a vehicle that has:
* No tailpipe emissions
* No evaporative emissions
* No onboard emission-control systems that can deteriorate over time
* No emissions from gasoline refining or sales
You guys can split hairs all you want, even if coal is used to generate
the power, the pollution from the plant is less tan and
easier to control than in thousands of individual ICE cars.
