Fun Facts Friday - Electric Cars Could be Bad for the Environment

This week's Fun Facts Friday is that electric cars could be bad for the environment.

According to The Globe and Mail, "A reader alerted me to a published study by academics in Norway that argues that electric cars can be bad for the envir
onment. One of the report’s authors, Guillaume Majeau-Bettez, is a Canadian who defended the report in a spirited e-mail exchange.

First, the report itself. The study was done by engineers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and was published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology. Its main point is that the evaluation of electric cars has to take into account the “concerns of problem-shifting.” In other words, by solving one problem, do electric cars create another?"
