    From the above article you cited, Cappyjax:

    "Granted, there’s some slight good news in the new report, in that as renewables and natural gas have grown, coal has a smaller share of the energy pie overall [my emphasis]."

    It's clear that different sources give a different account of what's happening with coal-fired power generation. Some say that coal generation has increased in absolute terms (due primarily to China and India), and some claim it's dropping (due to accelerating transition to natural gas and renewables in the more developed world).

    However, all sources, including the ones you have cited, show that coal generation as a percentage of overall generation is still declining, although more slowly in the past few years. And no source either of us cited has claimed coal generation today accounts for more than 41% globally.

    So . . . we're still a long way from any support for your claim that the "vast majority" of EV's are powered by coal-generated electricity.

    Can you produce one -- just one -- source that claims coal-generated electricity powers even 51% of EV's anywhere in the world . . . much less the vast majority?

    Do you not understand how the grid works? Energy comes from all sources and is delivered where it is needed. So, every super charger tied to the grid is using coal.

    I do understand how the grid works. You apparently don't understand how percentages work.
