In order for electric cars to become economically and socially viable, the government should promote electric car programs and subsidies because the electric vehicle is the best solution to the problems. As the United States imports many gallons of oil from many other countries, the advantage of electric cars will help to reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. On an everyday basis, the United States consumes about 70% of 400 million gallons of oil for transportation including automobiles, air travel, rail road and transit. As mention before, the increases of oil dependence have transfer wealth to the foreign country. According to the article “Plugging Cars ... ... middle of paper ... ...thium-ion batteries can be considered as a poison to human’s health and also on the biosphere.
Global warming has been the biggest climate change crisis nowadays. The main reason of the crisis is large-scale use of fossil fuels causing emissions of large amounts of greenhouse gases nearly a century. Consequently, the global precipitation has been distributed and glaciers and permafrost melt. Other than that rising sea levels will results in unbalance of natural ecosystems threatening human food supply and living conditions. However humans are increasingly aware of global warming would bring catastrophic changes to the Earth so that many solutions have been discussed nowadays.
It is not the burning of the fossil fuel, but the emissions of the gas from the burning fossil fuel that adds to the Greenhouse Effect. Greenhouse Gasses in this planet are natural, but with added amounts of Greenhouse Gasses, the Greenhouse Effect gets much stronger. There are several simple solutions, but many people don’t care about the environment enough to help stop Global Warming. One Step to stop Global Warming could be to turn off your computers when you finish with them, because computers use electricity, witch is created mostly by the burning of Fossil Fuels. Another Step to control Global Warming could be to use Public Transportation, rather than each person driving around in a car, because each less car reduces the level of oil burned.
Although technology can help to stop global warming, it cannot be the solitary factor in doing so. The seriousness of global warming effects both the environment and the people living in it. The question is how do Americans effect the environment and what can we do to fix it? Americans everyday use automobiles as a form of transportation, and although it may seem harmless, the use of these cars are proving to be detrimental in the end. Author Margaret Kriz (2006) states that, “the vast majority of scientists who study Earth's climate agree that the planet is warming, and they blame the greenhouse gases that accumulate in the a... ... middle of paper ... ...ng the problem of global warming.
While Hybrids have improved gas mileage, it isn’t nearly as beneficial as car companies want the consumer to believe; the production of hybrids can create nearly 2 times the than conventional gasoline car production. On average, nearly 40% of the total lifetime carbon emissions for a hybrid-electric car occurs during production. Compare that to the meer 20% of producing a conventional gasoline vehicle and it begins to become clears why car companies focus their advertising so heavily on the on road performance of their hybrids. While a 20% difference may not seem like a lot, it means the difference of a couple tonnes of carbon emissions. Hybrid cars are called hybrids because they are a cross between an electric car and gasoline car, meaning it has both electric engines and a gasoline engine.
Cut down the industrial emission c. Encourage people to use biofuel iv. Conclusion Global Warming Nowadays, one of the most difficult problems is Global Warming. It is obvious that increasing in earth's temperature has made significant negative effects on earth's climate during the last few decades. Not only earth's climate was affected, but also the world's life was involved by this changing. While most people do not realize the worse effects of rising the earth's temperature, the researchers try to illustrate the impact of changing the earth's temperature on the future of the next generations on this plant(1).
Arrhenius and another scientist Thomas Chamberlin calculated that human activity would warm the earth with adding more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere (Ensler). In time the Greenhouse Effect or Global warming hasn’t been thought of that much by the everyday people until recently. The reason, some do not believe that global warming is a direct cause by human activity and that it doesn’t affect humans in general. The natural amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere varied from one hundred and eighty to two hundred ppm-- parts per million, ... ... middle of paper ... .... Car manufacturers like Tesla which produces and all electric car, the Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Honda Civic Hybrid, which are vehicles capable of lessening greenhouse gas emission by the use of either both gasoline and electric or electric by itself.
Companies that avoid emitting carbon receive tax credits, while setting a model for other companies. However, the true solution begins not with trying to reduce emissions, but to capture the carbon currently in the atmosphere. Our addiction to fossil fuels is so immense that it is impossible to stop emitting CO2 all together. Building a wind farm doesn’t mitigate the effect of global warming; it only makes the current climate stay the same. Governments will have a hard time springing to action.

However the reduction in emissions of 12.5% is though by environmentalists to be too small and that the target should be nearer 60%. The effects of CFC's are well known and the use of them in manufacturing is decreasing and may eventually be banned. New environmentally friendly fuels have been developed and now cars can be run on gas. However, it has never been proved that greenhouse gases are the main cause of global warming though scientists have yet to discover if anything else is to blame.
Climate Change What’s happening in our planet? When we talk about our planet it’s to talk about climate change, and how it is affecting us, but what about who is provoking the climate change. The climate of our planet has changed in the last decades, and the earth is overheating more every year. The climate change of the planet has taken millions of lives, and the same humans have provoked this devastating change on our planet. We are consuming our own home and the home of other species.
