Oh right, so the report you found compared building an bettery and running it in countries that are heavily reliant on coal powered fuels stations.

Yes correct, a country where most electricity is produced from coal (and ignores gasoline refining also using coal power) it will take a while (10 years they state) to get even.

But if you actually consider the fuel generation, not just the engine/battery production then the picture is completely different.

See how many of the arguments on here are exactly the same as

All based on articles that were spread from investors and people in the Oil industry.

See that everyone is expecting there to be a move towards EVs over the next decade and that the Oil industry is worth about $75 Trillion per year and you have to question why this disinformation is so readily available.
