Many countries like UK, Norway, France have plans to move out cars with fossil fuel before 2050 because this is the only way to reduce pollution and save the environment. So it will be replaced by electric cars. But this also might not help the situation. The EVs have to be charged using electricity. But this will be also generated from the same fossil fuel. So both the things are not suitable for the environment.

Electric cars really won't save the climate because the battery's weight is about 1,000 pounds and raw materials required more than 500,000 pounds. So ultimately driving electric cars are not safe for the planet. The negative point in using electric cars is that lithium is being used in car batteries.

Electric vehicles and hybrids are better substitutes than gas engine vehicles, there is no doubt about that. Electric cars release fewer greenhouse gases than fossil fuels. The EV battery is made with raw materials like lithium, manganese, cobalt, and nickel which are supposed to be mined and also processed before the battery can be actually manufactured. Lithium mining is made of carbon-intensive it is made up of heavy machinery during extraction procedures. But this can cause environmental injury like pollution in the Tibetan rivers near resource mines. So that is why it is stated that electric cars are not safe for our planet
