Are Electric Cars Worse For The Environment?

  • It is good to hear another source confirming the same. Also that the case for electric is not only stronger confirming again that the old advice run your petrol car as long as possible then buy electric is now generally wrong. I used to use my last car 300 miles a year for its last 5 years my plan was to keep it indefinitely. The road TAX is zero in the UK for cars over 25 years old and the car was already 21 but unfortunately something went wrong with the car.

    I walk use public transport which there is a lot near my home and now just started using my 70-year-old bike. The Raleigh sports bike is so well made and exceptionally light to peddle compared to modern bikes that it would put any car but a model T-Ford, Cadillac, Rolls Royce or Bently to shame. Adjusted the seat hight today the nut moved as easily after 45 years when I was still a growing teenager as if I had freed the nuts or replaced them yesterday and greased them, which I had not.
