Electric cars are not a silver bullet solution for global warming, but could they actually be part of the problem? In some developing countries, the answer is likely "yes," according to the results of a modeling exercise conducted by Oxford University's Reed Doucette and Malcolm McCullocha.
The results, which appeared in a paper published in Energy Policy last Fall, found that for countries with dirty power supplies - like India and China - widespread adoption of electric vehicles could lead to more - not less - CO2 emissions compared to widespread adoption of gasoline based vehicles, unless dramatically less CO2 intensive.
