Why do liberals obsess over electric-powered cars when 99% of electricity is created by coal or gas in the first place? ?

Are they just... stupid, or something?

It’s sort of like when our customers demand VOC-free paint... the VOC’s are still created during the paint making process. They just get dumped into a landfill somewhere. They still pollute the earth equally as regular paint bcuz of this, but some hippie customers are happier bcuz they “feel” better for some odd reason even tho it has absolutely no positive benefit on the planet

    It's not 99%, and most of what is created with coal or gas is used during business hours, when the cars are parked at the owner's workplaces. When they are at home charging at night, much less electricity is created with coal or gas (less electricity is needed at night because fewer businesses are open and fewer air conditioners are running, but it's not cost-effective to turn nuclear or hydroelectric plants on and off, so they keep running and coal and gas-powered electric plants shut down).

    Electric cars don't vent fumes in crowded cities.

    "99%"? More "alternate facts" by a conservative. Only 63% of US electricity production is from fossil fuels. 20% is from nuclear energy. 17% is renewable, i.e., hydroelectric, wind turbines, solar panels, etc. 

    The reason liberals go on about it is, aside from preserving the habitability of the planet for future generations, renewable energy provides a pathway away from fossil-fuel dependence, which not only is bad for the environment but also threatens American security and has been the reason for entire wars.  It's been proven electricity produced by renewable energy is a pathway away from fossil-fuel dependence as other countries, like Germany, have crossed over to producing most of their power through renewable energy sources, not fossil fuels or even nuclear energy.  

    Electric cars fueled by renewable energy, or even just 17% by renewable energy, instead of internal combustion cars fueled 100% by fossil fuels is not only how America becomes cleaner and less of an environmental threat to future generations but also how America becomes presently safer and more self-reliant and weens itself off the teat of foreign fossil-fuel producers.  Those are plenty of excellent reasons to go on and on about electrical cars, even obsess, so your obtuse lack of vision is your shortfall, your stupidity, not liberals'.  

    Next time, do a little fact-finding before you speak out of school in order to not publicly prove how staggeringly ignorant you are.
