And electric cars are horrendously bad for the environment, batteries requiring very scarce elements such as lithium and cobalt, the mining of both causes huge destruction of natural habitats, plus the recent news stories regarding the human rights abuses and child labor used to mine cobalt:

Not to mention there isn't enough of either within the planet for everyone who currently owns a fossil fuel vehicle to have a battery vehicle, and on top of that even the most developed western countries do not have anywhere near the power infrastructure to cope with everyone charging their car each night.

Electric cars are a complete and utter dead end technology!
