Submission + - Electric cars an environmental disaster? 3

An anonymous reader writes: Many news Sources in New Zealand are reporting on a new independent report (pdf) on the viability of electric cars as a solution to energy and transportation problems. The findings suggest that contrary to the manufacturers' claims changing from petrol to electricity may actually increase the C02 output of the transportation sector, simply moving that pollution from the tailpipe to the powerstation. Coal energy is mostly to blame for this according to the report and the coal power industry is set to grow over the next few years in most countries.
