The "climate problem" is a myth, as demonstrated by the continual shifting between claims of global heat waves and global freezing. The preferred term is now "climate change," because it's difficult to deny there is weather. The weather has changed constantly since the beginning of time. But weather is not a crisis, nor even a problem. It is normal. There is no science grounding the hysterical claims of climate catastrophe, just an ideology seeking to concentrate the power of government over its subjects.
We were assured the "oil age" was going to end in the 1920s. Bureaucratic drones who want to control consumer choices continue to roll out this absurdity whenever they get a chance. Oil -- cheap energy -- will be available for well over the next 100+ years, if governments will simply get out of the way. And if we ever do get to a point where oil is becoming scarce, the market will signal the most efficient modes of replacement, without the need for massive government subsidies.

Mmmm probably it's a "myth" but we are generating lots of trash, and we should care a bit more about that. the plastic on the ocean is a fact, not a climate problem, but its a pity anyways...
I think the most and almost only guilty are the big companies.

Great job with this. Unfortunately, Americans seem to be in the most denial about our climate issues and this person above is probably paid by the lobbyists to keep forwarding misinformation.

Ha Ha, don't generalize all Americans... This video does a great job of telling a story of how one country can do it's part in making change. I grew up in LA in the 1970's, and it was a pollution pit. I'm all for anything that can improve air quality. I agree with Sam that in geologic time, we are but a blip. But as good human beings, we should do what we can to mitigate our impact on Earth as we understand it through science.... it's called being a good steward of our planet. Love to all.

The Scientific Alliance:
"Global warming became too black and white a concept to fit with the vagaries of weather systems and quickly grew to be the butt of jokes when the weather was unseasonably cold (ironically, there were early snowfalls on the day that the UK Climate Change Act was passed). 'Climate change' then became the preferred term, encompassing pretty much anything which might be considered 'unnatural'. But this was also open to criticism; after all, is climate not intrinsically variable? Hence the recent enthusiasm for 'global climate disruption', which nicely encapsulates the concept of unwanted and unnatural change."

Car gas emissions pale in comparison to the ones caused by cattle... but that's a subject no one wants to talk about... and to even suggest environmental improvement via electric cars is deceitful, hypocritical and elitist. The problem does not reside on the fuel used to move those cars but the amount produced and used. Just like meat consumption. The planet is just UNFIT to handle 7 days a week meat eating habits, same as it is UNFIT for everyone owning a car. This add is pure marketing... one product gains bad rep, they move to another and advertise it like its the ultimate solution. Bunch of nicely shot frames and well-spoken bs slogans do not impress me. Its just business. Was business before and still is. That's what needs a change, not how "green" ours cars are. Only then real long-lasting solutions will come up. So, top 5%-10% has a little bit fresher air to breathe in their cities and the rest... well who cares about the rest, as long you can drive your nice little beemer eh?

Dumbasses. Last year, all the world's nations combined pumped nearly 38.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the air from the burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil, according to new international calculations on global emissions published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change. This is only one of the list of suicidal efforts we as a human race are ignoring, and to quibble about it here is just showing why we are destined to become extinct. Or we could all grow up and get to work and clean up our rooms before Mom get's home. Save the trees. Hempies™ Paper.

Great video, but I always thought that the COWS distributed worldwide are the main reason for the climate problem. Eating less meat would solve much more problems than switching to eCars.

There are several things very wrong in the film. First there is a car called "SMART" vom Mercedes since 15 years. The car is small, for 2 people and uses about 4 Liters Gas on 100 KM. In Switzerland they had a great added value with parking and so on - very similar to that which was shown in this video, but they never had in Germany.
Most people in Germany use cars alone or with 2 people. So, the first thing would be reducing the size of the cars. But what happended - the cars are growing fatter and fatter each year. SUVs in the cities and so on. Now putting E-Drives in existing car systems is a lamer solution. Where does the E-Power come from? Atom powered or Cole? What needs to happen is paradigma change for other transportation alternatives in the cities like bicycles.

Did you know that "Gas flaring" in Afrika does a bigger negative effect with its Emission than all of the cars in Europe together. Shell and other could stop it in a minute, but time is wasted on conferences to tell the small people to stop polluting the nature...

Regardless of climate change or even if we never use fossil fuels again and totally have clean energy. You will not save the world you have only so many resources and so much room. World population size creates all the problems in the world unless you get that under control there is no technology that is going to save you, and humans will be the only food source left on the planet. So unless you get your population under control you're doomed. You don't have to kill one single person to do it, but I will keep that solution to myself, because it will be complimented at some sage in order to save the planet.

The content of a tanktrack with diesel equals 296,000 kWh. How should this energy be distributed at the same time?
The battery technology is not yet as far and the infastructure of the e-filling stations also not yet.

It is a nice effort but not a real possibility for most of countries.
Easy to speak like this, when they've already based a high level economy by extracting enormous amount of fossil fuel, and having extraordinary chance to use water energy.

Well, just do it, because it is wonderful result, but do not say, this is a 100% alternative for everybody over the world.

Are they plugging the car into a magic box? Where do they get the energy for the electricity? Fossil fuels! They will be around for a long time to come!.+FD

Frederick,

The conversion of electric energy in a motor to kinetic is way more efficient than small combustion. ~90% vs ~30%.

Same for transmission. A few % loss vs having to burn a hundred gallons to transport 3000 gallons of fuel via truck from production to consumer.

Martin's correct too, the electric grid can be mixed sources.

marquixHD

electric power is in-efficient for all these "raw" uses (heating, moving machinery etc)! Also, there is substantial loss in the grid (around 55% or generated energy is wasted in grid transmission, there will never be anything remotely resembling any "smart" grid)!!

These issues are hidden when you only look at how "efficiently" electric engines are compared to internal combustion engines -- this "science" is loaded with the usual shortcomings, resulting in non-comparable scenarios.

Show me some sustainable "island grid" houses having surplus electricity to also power electric vehicles, and THEN we'll be talking SOLUTIONS. This is not popular with multi-national oil conglomerates, Norwegian government bureaucrats, Vattenfall, or other industrial functionaries rigging regulations in order to dictate what private households can and cannot do.

if there really is a anthropogenous "climate problem', then why not finally cut down on Globalisation, on long-distance vegetables in our food shelves, on unnecessary air travel -- not to mention military aircraft polluting everything from Lake Vaner down to Sicily...?!

But here they are, talking heads, pretending to "know" everything (or, in fact, the first thing at all) and are selling us their "efficient" e-mobility solutions. Seriously, where is that electrical power coming from: "climate friendly" nuclear, imported energy from France or Sweden (still nuclear, 80% or 56% nuclear respectively!) or where the heck do you find those amounts that would sustain this wasteful "economy" of today's Europe or the U. S.?

More questions than answers already -- an I am only sticking with laymen's concerns here, not even touching even the surface of the more complex issues underlying the entire transportation and mobility problems -- unless we actually CUT DOWN ON MILEAGE.
