How often do you think about the dangers of producing any product, from those that are needed in your daily life. After all, any production cycle consists of many transformations of various components and materials, in production they use electricity and irreplaceable natural resources. In what units is the harm caused to nature considered? How to evaluate the product itself, units, tons, labor costs for production, final cost, service life, environmental friendliness during operation, recyclability, disposal cost?
So, electric vehicles are still an order of magnitude ahead in terms of environmental friendliness and service life. At least these two factors are the main factors for the growth of production, development of technologies and stimulation of consumer demand. It is possible to assess the harm caused to the nature and ecology of our planet only by agreeing on the assessment criteria, spending financial resources on research and monitoring. We live in a time when statistics and scientific conclusions can be presented in different light, it all depends on who finances the research, whose interests are represented by the research group. I believe that any answer can be correct, there is no single correct answer yet.
