Where does the energy for your Tesla come from? Mine comes from coal plants. What is the environmental impact of the cobalt mining required for the batteries? And speaking of batteries, were do those go once the car becomes obsolete in 5-7 years? That type of hyperbole and looking down your nose towards people driving ICE cars is childish. Regardless of my feelings for Tesla, having also come from a BMW, I can confirm much of what OP is saying is pretty accurate.
