Daily X-tra

I was reading an article from the Canadian Globe and Mail, and was pleasantly surprised to read that our northern neighbors are starting to get a clue on electric cars.  That clue being they are not green, not clean and not feasible for society. All these tree huggers driving their electric cars seem to forget the charge for these short range power suckers comes from power plants, most of which burn coal. The article doesn't even get into battery cost and how many batteries you need. Not to mention the cost of disposing of the batteries every 3-5 years that they have to be replaced (same issue for hybrids btw). Something to think about before you go and buy one of these stupid cars.
