16. Not So Environmentally-Friendly
While it’s true that electric vehicles have zero emissions, did you ever think about what it takes to make just one electric vehicle? Apparently, the process of making a big chunk of Lithium-Ion batteries as well as their disposal is polluting since they aren’t recyclable.
Also, electric vehicles demand more electricity. That comes from thermoelectric or nuclear power plants, which are extremely dangerous because they’re choking the Earth. The rising demand for electric power will only raise the level of global pollution. This is actually far beyond what internal combustion engines are doing now.
