Tesla's Carbon Footprint Is No Better Than A Honda Civic's
The beautiful Tesla Model S electric sports sedan has been an object of desire, rapture and ignominy to driving enthusiasts, eco-champions and eco-skeptics, respectively. It's also outselling some Mercedes, BMW and Audis. But does Tesla merit this much attention for being green? Short answer: no, or at least, not yet. For one thing, its sales are miniscule in the grand scheme of things and, as for reducing vehicular carbon impact, you'd do just as well buying a Civic.
