Our fuel intake is not going to go down so we need to adapt to ways other than diesel and gasoline. There are many great alternate fuels and although I personally do not think we have an efficient alternative that is healthy enough for the environment to convert to I believe we are getting there. With many options there are many pros and cons. Each fuel has its benefits and its own downfalls. We must weigh our options and make intelligent decisions to create a way of life that works both for human industry and the environment. There are eight alternatives to the fuels that we use that should be considered thus far in our quest for a greater compromise with our planet. The first type of fuel for thought is ethanol. This is one of our best options because the materials used to make this fuel are renewable! Renewable resources are the perfect solution for something we use daily around the world. Ethanol has the downside of making our food prices increase and making the availability of the foods used to make the fuel like corn,wheat,and barley more limited. This fuel is also alcohol-based and very expensive to make. The ethanol is also mixed with gasoline to help with the rise of octane levels and the improvement of the quality of CO2 emissions. This mixture is still fifteen percent gasoline which makes it a reduced problem,but not a solved problem. The next alternative is to use natural gas. The positive with this is that natural gas is unquestionably available in many countries throughout the world and with specialized engines both cars and trucks would be able to produce less CO2 emissions. The downside to this is that natural gas contains methane which is actually worse than CO2 by 21 times for global warming and the... ... middle of paper ... ...ay we must keep trying to come up with the best solutions to bring our CO2 emissions to a reasonable level. I think that our best option was with the menthol powered vehicles and the auto industry needs to conform to the needs of our environment. Yes, this will be costly but very well worth it. I for one would much rather pay more for a car that is healthy for my world rather than make our CO2 levels so unbearable that we cannot have fresh air. The fuel issues in the world are much bigger than we think and with these eight alternatives both the auto industry and our scientists have to buckle down for a solution. In the time it has taken to come up with these solutions so much of our planet has been further hurt. These solutions,however difficult must be made a priority and we have to willing to pay for it out of our pocket so we do not have to with our lungs.
