There have been several articles highlighting the merits of electric vehicles in the papers in recent weeks (Plugging into the future, March 22).
While I am aware of the plus points of electric vehicles, such as less pollution and less noise, I am concerned that there is almost no discussion of the future impact of millions of used electric car batteries on the climate and global landscape, and beginning from only a few years down the road.
The Sunday Times report does not touch on the fallout from the widespread and prolonged use of vehicles powered by batteries.
There must be a discussion of the very real issue of large numbers of used batteries posing a problem for future generations. This is our duty to them.
