Since I started this blog I’ve been contemplating how to handle the elephant in the room. Are electric cars actually better for the environment compared to Internal Combustion Engines (ICE)? For my fellow Albertan’s, it certainly isn’t intuitive to think that a car getting the majority of it’s power from coal fired power plants can be better for the environment than our traditional ICE vehicles. In fact, it’s the subject of numerous meme’s and hate on social media. (I’m sure more than one of you readers have seen the above Tesla with the Coal Powered licence plate being shared on various feeds).
