Thank you for an excellent article about how "green" an EV is and drawing the focus to the total carbon footprint of the vehicle and not just when you are driving about.

I'd like to add that the Lithium etc. demand for the solar "revolution" coupled with the wind "revolution" that is always just around the corner also needs to solve its intermittency problem and will demand enormous amount of Lithium and other metals. Also, unfortunately the net-zero pledges by 2060, or 2070 by countries burning coal like there is no tomorrow (hint:there may not be) representing 2.5 billion people are meaningless when we need reductions now and will lead to catastrophic warming.

Keep in mind there is another whole continent of people using less than 1/10 of the energy of Northern Americans per capita that want to close the gap too.
