Today, people try to find resources that do not impact on the ozone, or cost a large amount of money. Moreover, most people are not happy with unclean air, which causes an unhealthy environment to live in, and one of the reasons that make unclean air is a fossil fuel. There are millions of cars run daily, so they make the area impure; therefore, the electric cars are the solution for this problem. Electric cars powered by electric motors, and using renewable energy instead of gasoline, are more helpful. One author argues that electric cars are more useful than traditional cars to protect the environment, especially when they depend on the source that used.
Automobiles and its related manufacturing contribute to the degradation of the environment causing great concerns from consumers, governments, policy makers and environmentalists, regarding the economy and global warming. This resulted in market changes, due to new environmental laws, legislations, standards, product requirements and consumer wants. The gasoline engine produces emissions that are deadly for the environment, hence the big race by the automobile producers to develop an efficient alternative fuel/energy for powering its vehicles. Deloite (2014) ‘In 2012, new Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards were released in the U.S. that requires automakers to raise the average fuel efficiency of new cars and trucks to 54.5 MPG by 2025.’ (“Global Automotive Consumer Study”, 2014, p.4) The industry is engaged in research and development to develop more efficient internal combustion engines, electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in hybrids, and vehicles powered by natural gas. The government offers incentives in the form of rebates for the purchase and sale of energy efficient
During the late 1900’s, fuel efficiency was given very little thought by automakers. Instead, they competed with each other by coming out with larger and more powerful vehicles each year, and by doing so they sacrificed fuel efficiency, because each new vehicle that they built got fewer miles per gallon. Americans craved bigger and more powerful cars, so to comply with the car buyers, that is what the automakers built (Surowiecki 25). However, “polls show that, given an option, some three-quarters of them vote for dramatic increases in fuel-economy standards” (Surowiecki 25).
As humans delve into the twenty-first century, scientific research continues at an exponentially increasing rate. While the work of researchers seems to affect people in positive ways, the common debate among the general population is whether or not there is a limit to how far scientists can take their research and impact the future of society. The changes that scientists induce upon society often escape foresight, such as diseases, dangerous paints, and other products that do not pass the test of time. One big issue that is fiercely debated is how to go about switching to alternative-fuel-source automobiles, given that the world’s supply of oil will run dry relatively soon. 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?
The invention of the automobile in the early 20th century has had an adverse affect on our environment. Our society has used technology in order to advance the automobile to make it better and more efficient. The automobile industry knows what sells and they take advantage of that. With this growing technology to advance automobiles also comes flaws. The biggest and most obvious flaw is pollution. Because of pollution, we find ourselves asking the question of whether this technology has helped our society more than it has hurt it.
In summary of this piece of writing, the American automobile industry will and continue to face challenges, while the world continues to depend on fuel to power vehicles which release dangerous particles into the environment and cause both human, Animal, and plants damage. The sooner the industry reinvent itself into
Americas love affair with the automobile has caused more than a few problems for our environment. Air pollution may well be the number one problem, but there is others. For example, we throws away 240 to 260 million tires each year-tires that are not never biodegradable and although some companies recycles tires into road surfacing materials, the process are expensive. Another problem is the worlds dwindling supply of petroleum. More earth friendly alternatives must be found so that Americas love affair with cars don't turn into no fatal
However, if you have a long distance to commute and biking does not work for you, fuel-efficient cars are eco-friendly and can be your solution in preventing global warming. There are many pros to using a fuel-efficient car. As nationwide, an insurance company, reports these cars are environmentally friendly since they use 30-60% less fuel than traditional automobiles, they have higher gas mileage, higher resale value, and easy maintenance. Since these cars are comparatively new, they have not been perfected yet. The limitations can range from limited space, long recharging time, and shorter driving range
People use automobiles as their main transportation on the daily basis to get from point A to point B. They use them to go to work, school, or simply to do the weekly groceries in the city. As more people use cars, more CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere, destroying it as well. Although many car companies started to make smaller engines, there are still a mass amount of cars that still produce excessive CO2 emissions. With time, the CO2 will cluster up and slowly destroy our environment, and our planet as well. This is why a solution needs to be projected towards this problem as quickly as possible.
The United States can decrease its dependence on oil-producing nations and improve the environment without robbing every citizen's pocketbook. The gasoline used in most cars today produces pollution, endangers people's health, forces us to be dependent on OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Companies) or other oil production organizations, and contributes to global warming. The main reason people have not converted to cleaner, healthier fuel is that hybrid and electric cars are more expensive than the cars and gasoline we are using now. However, we could implement a program for selling cleaner fuel at a lower cost than it is now offered. If this program were organized correctly, the increased costs would be minimal in the long run and the benefits would be enormous. After considering several possibilities, I concluded that alcohol-burning cars are more practical than other environmentally friendly options because electric and h...
As McKibben states that we live in a “heedless, supersized society” (325). People are buying these vehicles based on looks, rather than having concern about gas mileage and the amount of CO2 the vehicle emits. Especially since automobiles have become a major part of daily life, we need to be aware of the gas mileage of the vehicle because there are so many thousands of cars on the road emitting so much CO...
Almost all car makers around the world are responding to this issue and have begin their research to reduce the risk of climate change. The steps that the car manufacturers have to take to deal with this situation are to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions and waste produced by both of their manufacturing factories and vehicle by implementing new measures in their factories and by looking at using renewable fuels that produce cleaner emission.
With a gasoline-fueled vehicle, buying gas to operate your car is a never-ending process. With the high price change of gasoline and oil, operating a gasoline-fueled vehicle tends to be very costly. While there are some types of small gasoline vehicles that get much better gas mileage than larger vehicles, even the most powerful gasoline cars will normally desire a contribution every month. According to some experts the only way a mainstream market for green vehicles wills materlize is with a pronounced and prolonged rise in fuel prices. (Buss, 4)
It is estimated that there are roughly 700 million automobiles that are currently traveling the highways recurrently. Karen D. Povey (Reference), who is the author of many environmentally focused books, estimates that by 2025 the number of vehicles on the road will be well over a billion. This kind of reality makes one think about the amount of carbon pollution prod...
All people around the world have made automobile as one of their most basic needs in their lives and automobile proves to be the most effective medium of transportation. In recent decades, either personal or public transportation have become more prevalent and more important for people to go to from one place to another which directly facilitate people to live in easy and convenient life. In addition, the fast development of the economy and the high obtaining power of its populace have made Malaysia the biggest traveler car market in South-East Asian Nations (Malaysian Industrial Development Authority, 2010). For that reason, the automotive industry has become one of the major industrial and economic
