What is more important? So called EV cars use electronic batteries that require large amounts of "rare earth" metals most of which come from mines owned by China or DRCongo both accused of major human rights violations, child labor, and lack of safety standards. Petrol based engines have their own problems with environmental impacts from pollution and drilling. Please pick one

lets make all the leftist global warming alarmists to walk, make their own clothes and not use anything involving oil, that includes food in a store too BTW

I've chosen a gasoline fueled automobile, reasonable size (4 cylinder), well maintained.

It'll be a cold day in hell, when everyone starts walking.

All other modes of transportation will violate rights over humans and environment.

Might as well be comfortable in the journey..

I suspect that when all environmental impacts are factored in, battery-powered EVs will be a net minus, just as corn ethanol has been, even aside from the human costs.

I think the only realistic solution is a reduction of the human population, hopefully by gradual means rather than catastrophic.
