So, I suggest that the money the federal government gets from collecting more gasoline tax, should go toward the research of electric vehicles. As soon as they are perfected, and ready to ... ... middle of paper ... ...nt, they also benefit the consumer. EV-Economic Benefits.7Oct2001.http://www.sdge.com/EV/Benefits/econ.html Hopefully by the government's action, enough money will be collected to continue the research and making of electric vehicles. A change from gasoline to electricity would immensely benefit our environment. When compared to other options, electric fuel seems to be the only way to reduce pollution without adding more problems as well.
Hybrid Cars In my basic presentation, I examined the practicality of HEVs (Hybrid Electric Vehicles), otherwise known as hybrids. The presentation gave some background about laws pertaining to emissions but at the same time was designed more to educate the consumer as to what a hybrid actually is. You do not plug it in! Current Emission Standards are confusing. At this point in time, we are at a major transition as to what will be the future of combustion vehicles.
Many carmakers are producing different types of electric vehicles, to achieve certain degrees of environmental friendliness, to make the best alternative vehicle for the upcoming years. Is the electric car is a practical, effective, and a cost reasonable car, for it to replace the gasoline engine? Absolutely. The electric car, whether it is hybrid, all-electric or hydrogen, it has a bright future with the myriad of environmental problems we face today. The hybrid still maintains dependence on gasoline.
The electric car seems to be the best candidate as a replacement for the moment, but many people are still weary about completely discarding the trusty internal combustion engine for an invention barely as old as the people who will buy them. The electric fuel is promising, but it has not been around long enough to undergo the test of time needed for mass acceptance. Here the more direct question arises: is the electric car the solution to a more economically responsible car? Being a member of the future generation of innovators and leaders, I feel that this research combined with my fascination of automobiles could lead to a clearer understanding of how I can help improve the automobile. In a world that is highly connected by roads, if the problem of using petroleum-based fuels is not solved, the entire gas-guzzling world could come to a standstill.
America Must Invest in Energy Efficiency In recent years our country has had many debates over what must be done to lessen the amount of oil that our country consumes. It is well known that we need to make some type of change to help not only the environment, but also lessen our reliance on imported oil. President Bush recently announced his new plan that could someday greatly reduce that amount of oil that Americans use by replacing oil with hydrogen fuel cells. Although this plan is a step in the right direction, it is not the answer. There are far too many downsides that could actually hurt our country in the long run.
According to the Union of Conc... ... middle of paper ... ... not made the balance, the hybrid car seems to be a promising innovation in the history of car manufacturing. After all, the conservation of energy and the reduction of pollution into our natural environment has been an everyday issue for our government for years and it will still be a major issue for years to come. Hybrid car is the green alternative to save the non-renewable sources of energy and the potential threat of global warming, the change from fuel to electricity must begin soon from the help of governments. A change is vital, and hybrid cars have cut their way to the green transportation revolution. But, how will the poor countries benefit from that change?
The future American commuter will undoubtedly have to transition from the use of fossil fuels to new alternatives due to the diminishing availability of the nation’s oil resources. How will America respond to this upcoming issue? It is difficult to predict which alternative fuel source America will ultimately choose, but with the premier of Nissan’s electric powered Leaf and other companies; such as Tesla Motors and Chevy, with their electric cars ready for market, the electric car may be winning the race to become the new standard for the gasoline alternative. Electric cars resolve long standing environmental issues, but it will need to maneuver around many roadblocks to become a marketable consideration for the general public. The cost of electric cars, currently on the market, makes them an impractical purchase for the average consumer.
In the world, there are alternative fuels being developed to replace the use of gasoline and oil dependence. Besides replacing gasoline and oil dependence these alternative fuels are here to prevent pollution from occurring, to stop pollutants from getting into the atmosphere and affecting the environment. “Alternative fuels have existed for a long time now back to the 1900 when the first electric car was introduced, gas powered cars were harder to produce and start at the time” (History of Alternative Fuels). That is why people look for an alternative fuel to make a car operate better. At that time what led to alternative fuels was a better way to make vehicles work better, but what truly led to the development of alternative fuels was to prevent global warming from happening.
As the positives of alternative energy will provide a healthier and cleaner future, cost is something people underestimate. The price of alternative energy will increase our national deficit as well as the people’s taxes, as manufacturing these products that will create alternative energy is expensive. As the economy of the United States continues to fall apart, Americans continually overuse fossil fuels and increasing the chance of global warming. As this epidemic continues to rise, the government issued a bill asking for change to the way fossil fuels are being used up. As the government started dealing with this problem, some influential senators have designed a bill called “S.3813: Renewable Electricity Promotion Act of 2010 stating by 2021, power plants will be run by 15% alternative energy.” (Reuters, “US renewable energy bill,” par.
They have realized the threat pollution poses and have decided to do something about it—through advertising. Each year these companies raise millions of dollars through advertising for the purpose of environmental research, auto development and public education. In response to the gas shortage of the 1970s, the first hybrid car was developed. Plans to mass produce these cars were the talk of the automobile industry but as soon as the crisis was over, these notions were quickly dropped. The popularity of hybrid cars and environmental awareness in our culture seems to fluctuate depending on the times—recently making a comeback in 2000 around the time that gas prices started to rise again; when unhappy... ... middle of paper ... ... a very big issue that will affect every person on this planet and if ignored, could have deadly consequences.
