Study: 25% EV adoption would save US $17B annually from avoided climate change & pollution damages

Green Car Congress

A new study led by researchers from Northwestern University projects that if electric vehicles replaced 25% of combustion engine cars currently on the road, the United States would save approximately $17 billion annually by avoiding damages from climate change and air pollution. This highlights the potential of co-beneficial solutions to climate change that not only curb greenhouse gas emissions but also reduce the health burden of harmful air pollution.

Oil and gas companies have had a tough time over the past year trying to weather the storm of falling oil prices. For companies that have seen their revenues vanish because of collapsing oil prices, access to credit is obviously critically important. Low oil prices are undermining the ability of some companies to pay back their debt. We unequivocally reject the allegations that Exxon Mobil has suppressed climate change research,” he said.
