I came across this answer on Quora which is an interesting Q&A website. The question was "Can we go carbon neutral just by using electric cars?" Below is the answer given:
"Don’t you realize that there is about one ton of steel in your electric car that contains about 400 pounds of special alloy steels. Those special alloy steels require about 40,000 pounds of coal to make them. That makes about 100,000 pounds of CO2. That isn’t going carbon neutral."
