REALTalk – Electric Cars

November 9th, 2021 by Susan McCabe

So, electric vehicles will save the planet. Right? Not so fast, says REALTalk guest Ian Morse.
Morse is a science and environment journalist with an eye on how business impacts land, oceans and Indigenous rights. In his newsletter, The Green Rocks, he writes about the potentially harmful environmental impacts of mining metals required to manufacture massive numbers of electric vehicles. He’ll tell host Susan McCabe how to avoid allowing dirty mining to ruin clean energy, and he’ll offer alternatives. Morse’s interview is a preview of the event co-hosted by Vashon’s AlTo and the Whole Vashon Project at Open Space for Arts and Community. Tune in. It may clear up some complexities…and it’s sure to be REAL.
