    Thank you for posting these.

    But of course this theory will be around forever. You will have the folks who translate "EVs are more carbon-intensive to produce" into "EVs pollute more." The fossil-fuel lobby is insanely powerful, and it is to their advantage to push this theory. They don't have to push very hard since the American Land Boat is well established in US culture.

    I wish -- Oh, how I wish! -- that we could say that. Unfortunately the Big Oil propaganda mills that call themselves "Conservative think tanks" keep funding new fake "studies" which cite some of the old ones, no matter how thoroughly the old ones have been discredited.

    For those with an open mind on the subject, I like to point to what the Union of Concerned Scientists have to say about life-cycle emissions of gasmobiles vs. EVs. Their study appears to be quite thoroughly researched and authoritative. In an ideal world, this study would be the final word on the subject:

    "Cleaner Cars from Cradle to Grave"

    The click-bait headlines of the "news" sites play a big part in the misinformation too.
