    Banning I.C. vehicles is really not the answer. I wonder how many people realize just how environmentally dirty current electric vehicles really are. They may appear to be clean but the damage done by mining for lithium and the process of making batteries does more damage to the environment than the use of I.C, vehicles. Until there is a true alternative to them I think legislating them out of existance is a foolish move and is only politically motivated and pushed by those that want to make a profit from mining of lithium and the manufacture of batteries, just as ethanol fuel was pushed by the farming states/communities and later found that it did not help the environment and only created more problems
