Doc Daneeka: Disposable Rob: Doc Daneeka: Not here in New York. We only get something like 5% of the electricity in our grid from coal.The vast majority comes from nuclear, hydroelectric, and natural gas.And where do non-electric cars usually get their power from?Exactly. That's my point.People say that electric cars aren't really clean because they get energy from coal, but the fact is that coal only supplies a fraction of the energy on the grid (and in many states, only a very small fraction).

Polyhazard: Disposable Rob:And to add, while the Fark headline makes it seem like Paul isn't making the connection between electric cars and coal, I'm pretty sure he's aware of the connection of how coal supports "Hollywood liberals".This. His comments are specifically about how coal-fired electricity fuels these cars, and that "Hollywood Liberals" are deluding themselves if they think that electric cars are an opt-out of the fossil fuel industry.
