Sorry. I don't get it. According to your apparently all encompassing title, we in the northwest will never own electric cars because we don't have coal power.

Electric IS the future. Quit trying to poopoo it.

If the electricity is generated from a nuclear plant does that make the EV nuclear powered too!? Nice try accept some of us just don't by this kind of silly misinformation.
Right now the EV transition is more about money and the alliances vs. technology
The technology battle has been won all the auto manufactures realize that Tesla has changed the game and EV's are the future. The ICE will eventually go away.
However in the mean time, big oil and old money are not going to throw in the towel that easily.
They will try to slow down the EV onslaught any way hey can.
If you are heavily invested in fossil fuels and gas stations, transitioning to charging stations ill not be in your best financial interest. Consequently you will produce low level videos like the one linked above in an attempt to slow the process and confuse the public.

The first person said coal and a little natural gas.
The second person said 95% coal.
They were just stating what they knew. They didn't say only coal will charge electric vehicles. That's where the power is coming from at that location.
I didn't see anything 'all encompassing' about the title.
To me, the video clip is simple and self explanatory. [emoticon]

That is fine. Coal is on the way out too.

CA is currently 0.1 % coal. http://www.caiso.com/TodaysOutlook/Pages/supply.html

Just think, this topic gets to be the new argued about topic for the next 20+ years. Beats the heck out of 1/2 tons can't tow 5er's.

That's the beauty of EV. Electricity can be generated in multiple ways.
However gasoline comes from only one source.

I wonder how GM figured out how to use 95% coal produced electricity while charging EVs from grids where coal sources only make up <95% of the total power produced; like ERCOT.
