You already know by now that Wonderful Engineering has fallen in love with Jason Fenske from the famous YouTube show Engineering Explained. The guy is passionate about cars, and his videos are not only clear but also quite well-researched. Imagine our excitement when we realized that Jason Fenske has decided to weigh in on the debate about electric vehicles and the impact that they are having on the environment. The debate is not new but is an ongoing debate.
The video’s description says, ‘Electric cars are touted as a solution for reducing emissions and improving the environmental impacts of transportation but are electric cars actually any better for the environment than gasoline cars?’ It goes on to say, ‘This video looks to answer three main questions: 1) Doesn’t EV battery production cause a lot of emissions? 2) Don’t electric cars get their power from fossil fuels? 3) Isn’t lithium mining terrible for the environment?’
Jason Fenske from the Engineering Explained YouTube channel goes through all three of the questions in extensive detail. He relies on his great oratory skills and the hard work he has put in researching the topic to bring us an answer that is concrete and satisfying. There are many different views out there, and the debate is a hot one.
The host of the famous YouTube channel goes on to explain that there is a lot of untrustworthy and wrong information that is readily available. He warns the viewers to watch out for such information. You can, however, trust Fenske as he has sourced all of his data and speaks from a position of knowledge. He did not look into the end of life emission but has catered to everything else in great detail.
What did he conclude? Come on; we are not going to tell you that. Check out the video below to find out if Fenske thinks that EVs are actually good for the environment or not!
