Are fossil fuel burning cars a lesser evil than pure electric cars?

When ever enviromentalists send fossil fuel burning motor vehicle(s) owner(s) on a guilt trip, just remember that pure electric powered vehicles may not knowingly done more harm to the enviroment by:

Hydro electricity: flooding massive areas of land

Nuclear electricity: mined uranium and radioactive waste

Coal electricity: mined coal and massive emmisions dispensed

Fossil fuel electricity: pumped or mined and massive emmisions dispensed

currently pure electric cars are a minority, at present it hasn't strained all electricity production sources. If the world shifts from fossil fuel burning cars to electric vehicles + our current electricity needs the world may see:

increased electricity rates because of demand

more dams built and land flooding to produce electricity demands

• more activity in uranium mining and radioactive waste to produce electricity demands

• more coal mining and massive emmisions dispensed from coal electricity plants to produce electricity demands

• more fossil fuel pumping or mining and massive emmisions dispensed from fossil fuel electricity plants to produce electricity demands

What's your opinion?

Is it safe to say fossil fuel burners can sleep better than electric chargers?

You'll probably get better reception from the people here if you'd stop the color and excessive use of bolded text in your posts.  And why do you always preface your posts with the "conduct policy"?

You did not mention the limited availability of the materials needed for the batteries.
