In my opinion, this specific Seeking Alpha author, Peterson, needs to
have one of the many experts on this list formally dispute one or
more of his articles. You need to find and document "clear factual errors."

Here is the "Dispute an article" link:

Peterson's articles:

His latest anti-EV article:

After reading the "Dirty Little Secret" article and the long list of
comments; I had to turn away and relax as my blood pressure was starting to
rise. Throughout that long aggruement my thought was "Why are Electrics
responsible for all the polution which may be a result of generating the
electricity ti charge their batteries, but Petrol powered vehicles were
never called to task for the polution of drilling, pumping, transporting,
spilling, refining, transporting (again), evaporating during storage at each
stop, transfer, and from the vehicle fuel tank, and finally combusstion
emissions of nitric oxides, and other smog constituients as well as many
known carcinogens and spreading them thru our neighborhoods." One must
consider that Peterson is a Lawyer and therefore trained to only present
facts favorable to his side of the case and the defense needs to present the
other side which he will always omit!

This is why the best approach is to carefully fact check (with as
many expert eyes as possible) and then submit well-documented (not
"rants") disputes through the Seeking Alpha process. Basically, you
have to convince the Seeking Alpha "judge" to "strike from the
record" anything he writes that is a "clear factual error."

If Peterson gets hit with a good number of "clear factual error"
hits, the Seeking Alpha folks may choose to drop him.

I think it is important to keep folks like this honest in the facts
they select present, at least.

Also, it is much less effective, but it helps some if you join
Seeking Alpha, and then vote plus or minus on the comments and on the
articles. Overwhelming negative feedback on the fear-mongers coupled
and over-welding positive feedback on the honest comments will make
some difference when Peterson tries to delete comments that he finds
unpleasant. If the commentor and the comment have positive ratings,
this gets hard for him to do more than once or twice.

Here again is the "Dispute an article" link:

If you find a factual error, carefully research and cite the
references, and then submit a dispute.

I was wondering how he got that 60% factor for hydro generators. Here in
Great Falls, Montana we have five hydro dams that are space about one mile
apart. There is six generators per dam for a total of 30 generators.

We only run two generators under load, two are in running standby and two
are in maintenance. So that makes 33 percent of the generators that are
under load.

Those 33 percent of generators are kept at 50% maximum load or about 15 to
16 percent. Now if you take the both loaded and standby running, this makes
about 60% of generators running.

This is the normal practice in generating power. I also use this method for
my EV. I have one motor running, one motor in standby ready to install and
one in maintenance.

Had to get some EV data in here.

As for coal power generation, we have one coal fire generator plant that is
about 400 miles east from me, that does not put any CO2 in the air, it only
emits water vapor. There is no coal trains or trucks that deliver the coal
to the plant. It is electrical conveyer by a 5 mile long conveyer belt
right from a huge excavator which is run by the coal fire generator plant.

The coal fire exhaust goes through the generators and then is pipe down into
a oil bearing formation which then releases more oil than was possible
before which is used to make more oil and lubricates for electric vehicles.
More EV data.
