My Friend's Electric... still emission free?

Just had to write to the BBC Politics Show:

Watching your pre-recorded segment on electric cars.

As I am sure 'experts' such as Mr. 'Monbeeay' [a pronunciation that I have not heard before] will confirm, I don't think it accurate to say that these efforts are 'zero' or 'emission free'.

The exhaust pipe is just in another place.

I am unsure what I am being sold here, but with the BBC selling it with their usual fine grasp of the science and commitment to looking across the issues objectively, I am pretty sure there will be a pup involved.

Now, how many fluffy reporterettes will we get serving up a blatant bit of inaccurate information in this regard before our national broadcaster gets its technical/science act together.

Gaurdian - £100m road to electric motoring ... police, post office and politicians step off the gas

Love the bit about free parking by Greenpeace. I think they might have missed the whole revenue aspect of governance. Plus the point of reduction. Maybe they all have G-Wiz' already and fancy a freebie? While it lasts.....
