I'm not sure that electric is significantly moe green, except for short commutes.
I see it that way, too. Instead of your vehicle generating its own energy for motion, you plug it into a wall and it gets that energy to move from a plant far away - sometimes over a 1000 miles away. How much electricity is lost thru the powerlines during that trip?
