You are just lying about what I write. No emotions here and I did not say zero emissions. Stop lying.roon wrote: ↑Sun Nov 19, 2017 11:49 pmOut come the emoticons. And on a "high-brow technical forum," no less.
TC was commenting on the zero-emissions fallacy, not EVs generally. You've misquoted him.
The composition of a grid's power sources determine its emissions. The diagram shows how grids with a mix of renewable or low-carbon fuels diminish the grid's carbon emissions. Since EVs get their energy from these grids, this is how you would determine an EV's carbon footprint, relative to which grid it is being plugged into.
Some of you guys are just too used to arguing against people that are against diesel. These last few posts I've made have all contained elements of me telling you what I did not say, despite the fact that this is all text and the text is still there mate
Did I or did I not immediately mention the fact that an EV can draw its power from a coal plant, roon? Does that not imply that it uses the power grid for that? Why, then, do you think you need to explain this to me? It's right there in my post for god's sake mate
Look at the numbers again though; specifically the notes at the bottom of the chart. What does it say there? Do you think it's an honest comparison to make, to bring i countries such as India - a country that is BUILDING it's flippin power grid as we speak into this? Is that an honest way to argue do you think?
So would you like to go back to reading what it is that I _actually_ write and comment on that instead of making me have to explain to you what it is that _my text_ actually does not say?
Downvote me all you want. Do what you have to do mate
