One can assume that battery electric vehicles (EV) are cleaner than traditional gasoline fueled cars, but do they really reduce the emissions that fuel climate change?Credit: Tomwang112According to a study by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) comparing them to gasoline cars over their lifetime, the answer is yes.Over their entire lifetimes — from manufacturing to driving to disposal — battery electric cars produce half the global warming emissions, on average, of comparably sized gasoline cars. In addition, driving a battery electric vehicle is cleaner than the average gasoline vehicle on global warming emissions everywhere in the country, and has been improving over the last three years.

Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention last week ought to serve as an urgent wake-up call to anyone that cares about America’s energy, environmental, and economic future. At the podium, Romney chided President Obama on global warming, and his hoped-for GOP administration is advancing an “energy independence” plan built much more on the polluting industries of the past than the innovative clean technologies of the present and future. Somehow, global warming, renewables, and other clean-tech pursuits have become some of his favorite punch lines.
