Electric Vehicles: Are We Living an Illusion?


Wired - July 3, 2012

Ozzie Zehner (not exactly a house­hold name) wrote a book enti­tled: Green Illu­sions: The Dirty Secrets of Clean Energy and the Future of Envi­ron­men­tal­ism – argu­ing that EVs are noth­ing more than envi­ron­men­tal and mar­ket­ing sym­bol­ism, can’t pro­tect us from using fos­sil fuel, built under fuel-inefficient cir­cum­stances and don’t nec­es­sar­ily reduce green­house gases. John Voel­cker, Green Car Reports edi­tor, sees light at the end of the tunnel.
