I clearly stated that oil to gas production cost was tiny compared to battery material mining to battery production costs and then add in recycling costs.Oil production to gas is tiny? It takes significant energy to convert crude to gasoline. And transport it to the station. Transmission of electrical power from plant to destination is only about 5%. https://www.eia.gov/tools/faqs/faq.php?id=105&t=3
No such thing as too much CO2 is a fact? Then all those scientists that think otherwise are wrong I suppose. Please support this fact.
Battery recycling is done by shredding them, sorting the materials and melting them down for re-use. They aren't taken to the dump. Once they are too degraded for use in the vehicle, re-using the battery cells for use in the grid for buffering energy can provide a second life in reducing the pollution of the grid. The vehicle manufactures should be thinking ahead of how to deal with the volume of batteries in the future. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/feat...ic-vehicle-batteries-will-go-when-they-retire

And CO2 is not a problem. That's pretty much a fact, if you discount the many politically motivated websites or scientists. When there is 100% agreement, which is what science is about, that the amount of CO2 added by America is destroying our planet, then I will agree. Until then, I agree with the many who claim it is NOT a problem, and these many scientists explain why. And no I won't prove it. Do your own leg work. It's not important to me that you believe me, but this is quite well known. Think what you want.
