Confirmed Again: EVs pollute less

A new study in Nature Sustainability confirms that EVs pollute less overall: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/mar/23/electric-cars-produce-less-co2-than-petrol-vehicles-study-confirms. No lung-destroying emissions at source, and less CO2 emissions, even when the grid isn’t very clean; an exception seems to be one country whose grid is 100% dirty, because there nothing will make a difference until the grid is cleaned up. This is not the first time we’ve advanced this position, nor the first time that EV haters have claimed the opposite.
