A Problem With Electric Cars

There is a problem with electric cars, and it's not the short range many of them still have. The problem is in the "green-ness" of the manufacturing process. A Norwegian study found that current production methods are working against the whole purpose for having electrics - to reduce carbon emissions.

"The production phase of electric vehicles proved substantially more environmentally intensive," than how gasoline and diesel cars are made, their report said.

"The global warming potential from electric vehicle production is about twice that of conventional vehicles."
