Electric cars could be an aid for the expensive car fuels nowadays. Yet they still discussing about this topic. There are many things that should implement and recognize before making any decisions about this matter.

Mr Green, you are too kind to respomd to someone who calls you an idiot. Your response was good. I hope the writer has visited the factory where his shoes, shirt and TV set came from.

It's hard to see what someone's saying when all you can hear is the anger and ego in their words. You did a good job though, so much hate in that message, ugh.

Hannah Greig

This is a very good article thank you


yes, Lead is very toxic material instead using these type of batteries, it is better to move towards fuel cell and do some research on it.
i think it will show some good result for hybrid cars

Mr Green, I do agree with your statement that "when you compare the damage done by hybrid and EV batteries with that done by burning fossil fuel, the trade-off seems worth it to me".
Electric Vehicles and Hybrid are much cleaner according to studies, compared with their gasoline or diesel counterparts.
Lead is used widely across many industries, with electronic manufacturing being one of the key consumers of Lead. Lead exists in all kind of electronic devices that we're using today, though manufacturers of electronic components are moving towards "lead-free" processes. Batteries is just 1 category of products with Lead.

I think there is a lot less to worry about with the current hybrid vehicles. It's an interesting debate though.


Every Batteries has its negative effect. Even though its a hybrid but still the amount of Poison that can be found in the battery is toxic. We should push more sustainable way of building what car should be healthy to our health and the environment


May this problem can solved in near future when the hybrid cars engines can run by a fuel cells which uses Hydrogen which inturn come from water source, may be this is a coslty enough now, but near future this will be one of the path to choose to prevent pollution caused by toxic chemicals
