Electric Cars Produce More Overall Pollution Overall Than Gas-Powered Whips

A new study from the University of Edinburgh has dug deep into the numbers and metrics of electric and hybrid vehicles and their research shows that these cars emit as many, and in some cases, more atmospheric toxins than your old-school fossil fuel-burning cars.
Chemicals and gasses from tires, brakes and whatnot also pollute, often with nasty stuff. Because of those heavy batteries (and the pollution it takes to make them) electric cars are simply not much better than traditional gasoline ones.
