Kate Tilling on Electric cars are they actually green

18th November 2021 @ 5:01pm

Apologies – I appear to have completely mangled my previous message.
I meant to say, this link I found useful:
an "independent nonprofit organization founded to provide first-rate, unbiased research"
which "considers present and projected future GHG emissions attributable to every stage in the life cycles of both vehicles and fuels" and concludes that "battery electric vehicles have by far the lowest life-cycle GHG emissions".

I also meant to say that clearly we are all going to have to cut back on driving generally, and switch to e.g. electric bikes for shorter journeys – and the end of my message was supposed to say that I have one of these and it is great!

Sorry for the garbled nature of my previous message. Hopefully this one is better!

Seems to be that, depending on where the cars and batteries are manufactured, electric cars will have lifetime emissions of around 30% that of a comparable ICE vehicle.

Road Safety could be greatly improved if more people used their indicators as required, reference source Highway Code rules 103 & 186. Parking on the Pavement is also a pet hate of mine, reference source Highway Code 244.

The last sentence of Kate Tilling's post does not make sense and much of Adrian Leighton's last piece did not seem right. Is the computer messing about with the text?

When making statements with data, please referance the source.
Otherwise data has as much value value as a comment on social media sites or a Trump source.
Thank you

I've seen several source give figures

Car life time carbon dioxide emissions (tonnes)

Tesla modal 3 27.1 tonnes
BMW 320i petrol car 22.8 tonnes

Hardly seems that the electric car is the green option.

The lifetime carbon footprint of electric cars vs petrol/diesel is complicated to calculate, and depends on where each vehicle is made, and in the case of the EV, how the electricity that charges is produced. But even in worst case scenario (car built and driven in country with mostly coal fired power stations), the EV is greener over its entire life cycle. One link I found useful is I have one and it is amazing, but electric cars seem to be part of a climate change reduction strategy.

Pippa May – A few years ago (7 or 8 maybe ?) I had my sewing machine repaired by someone who lived just beyond Whitchurch. His name was DAVID FLINT tel: 01948 780 593. I don't know if he is still in business, but you might try him.

I would like to apologise most profusely, to anyone upset by my flippant and inconsiderate post last night concerning recent unsavoury events in the village. I also apologise to our webteam who have the hapless task of monitoring contributions. They do a splendid job on a voluntary basis and like me, being human, sometimes fall below the standards that we would, in an ideal world, seek to achieve. Sorry to one and all.

Hi Pippa – Shaun Walley at Gorsty Hill Garage (behind the car Sales Garage, which is nothing to do with his business, on the Newcastle Road near Betley) – great with mechanics and excellent with bodywork – not too heavy with the pen. He never needs to advertise – speaks for itself. 01270 820191

I am looking for a garage that will service my car – without charging a fortune.

Please does anyone know of a person whom repairs sewing machines near to the Audlem area.

Looks like SpaceX`s Starlink satellites to me.

I think these are likely to be Noctilucent clouds although rather fuzzy.. Extremely rare but they are more likely to occur during solar minimums in late summer early autumn, granted its a little later than late summer. I've never managed to see them myself. There are some Kinsey Heath folks who are rather more qualified to confirm than myself.

As to the 'star trail'. It could be a satellite but it is rather bright. I agree with Nigel Y – definitely a practise run.

Not so sure Nigel as I have been told he eats baked beans everyday of the year other than when out delivering and then it is mince pies.

Nigel Mottershead on Stargazer

Of course and it would be hydrogen powered too!

Great Photos Nigel Mottishead, I think its quite obvious what you saw, it was Santa warming up his sleigh, practice flight before the big night.

Thanks, Rosemary Green, but I've been using the Google search engine on a near daily basis for approximately 20 years and more recently other search engines, so there was no need to supply me with a url.

Of course the results returned by search engines for a query will not all be equally valid.

I'm still hoping for a response from Mr McGregor.

In the meantime here are a few links that might or might not be of interest: If needed, generators at COP26 will be powered by hydrogenated vegetable oil
Makes clear that recycled used vegetable oil will be used, if the generators are needed.
