Electric mobility is currently experiencing a major hype as greener and more sustainable ways of transport. However, one should be aware of the disastrous disadvantages associated with having an electric car as means of transport. An electric car is not ecological and produces carbon dioxide. In addition, the mining of raw materials for the Lithium-ion batteries is on the back of child labor and done under catastrophic work conditions.
CO2 is responsible for about 66% of the total radiative forcing from GHG since pre-industrial time. CO2 emissions, mainly from burning of fossil fuels and cement production, have increased significantly over the last 100 years.
