Mobility is changing drastically. Our society is increasingly leaving combustion engines behind and opting for more sustainable possibilities like electric vehicles. After decades of research and efforts, public administrations worldwide, like United Nations and the European Comission, are finally taking commitments about sustainable mobility, joining sustainable development objectives like those promoted by UN for 2030.
Despite all these changes, there’s still lots of information and sources that try to debunk the sustainability and cleanness of electric mobility against combustion engines. Usually, they try to do it arguing that, even though electric vehicles don’t pollute by themselves, the process for generating the energy certainly does. These sources also often claim that wasted electric vehicle batteries and the extraction of raw materials needed to make them also pollute a lot.
But most of these accusations usually are not in line with reality. Besides academic and technical studies, that had proven systematically the sustainability of electric mobility against fossil fuel, it is also important to disclose these comparisons. And there are lots of communicators working on it, including GasTroll’s YouTube channel.
In one of its videos, created in collaboration with Fully Charged, this electric mobility channel analyses how much each process of energy acquisition, transport, and usage pollutes in both cases: electric vehicles and diesel ones. Through this comparison, the video shows that the latter produces a lot more pollution, with very clear numbers which help to understand the magnitude of the difference between these two kinds of mobility.
We encourage you to watch the video and draw your own conclusions about it:
