Driving Electric Vehicles In China Increases CO2 Emissions…Driving Gasoline Vehicles In China Reduces CO2 Emissions

Electric Vehicle Emissions 27-50% Greater Than Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles Image: Qiao et al., 2017 Sales of electric vehicles (EV) in China have exploded in recent years. According to the New York Times (October, 2017), between 2014 and 2017, annual EV purchases by China’s citizens more than doubled, from 145,000 in 2014 to 295,000 (projected) for […]

New Study: Electric Vehicle Use Does Not Reduce CO2 Emissions

New Study: Electric Vehicle Use Does Not Reduce CO2 Emissions

Negligible 4.9% Emissions Difference Between EVs And Petroleum Vehicles   According to a new paper published in the journal Issues in Science and Technology entitled “Electric Vehicles: Climate Saviors, Or Not?”, driving an electric vehicle (EV) rather than a conventional petroleum-powered vehicle effectively does nothing to reduce global-scale CO2 emissions. This is because charging EVs on […]

Evidence Review Suggests Humans May Not Be The Primary Drivers Of CO2 Concentration Changes

Evidence Review Suggests Humans May Not Be The Primary Drivers Of CO2 Concentration Changes

Anthropogenic Emissions ≠ CO2 Concentration Changes For the last 3 years, human CO2 emissions rates have not risen.  In fact, according to the IEA, we burned slightly more fossil fuels in 2014 than we did in both 2015 and 2016. Despite the lack of growth – even slight decline – in human emissions rates during 2014 – […]

Scientific Papers Indicate Natural Processes Dominate Changes In Ozone Hole, Methane And CO2 Emissions

Scientific Papers Indicate Natural Processes Dominate Changes In Ozone Hole, Methane And CO2 Emissions

What If Human Emissions Aren’t All That Influential? We have been led to believe that we can control the size of the ozone hole and both methane and CO2 concentrations with our emissions. We have also been led to believe we control weather patterns (storminess, droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes); we control tropospheric, atmospheric, surface, and […]
