Internationally, nations are increasingly focused on easing their dependence on oil and natural gas for the things their inhabitants use the most: cars. However, upon investigation, it was found that Germany’s early plan of having all cars be electric in the coming years may actually have an adverse affect by creating even more pollution and emissions.
In an attempt to usher in renewable energy, Germany currently has a plan in store: 100% of cars on the streets will be electric by 2030. However, as it stands, the plan to create the world’s first 100% electric vehicle country would actually increase emissions – an unintended consequence of what appears to be a good-natured piece of legislation. Indeed, if Germany reaches their goal of 100% electric vehicles their emissions would increase by the amount produced by present day Uruguay, or the entire state of Montana.
