Transportation is one of the basic necessities of human civilization. If there is no transportation on land, sea, or air, there may not be communication between human beings on this planet. But there are also side effects of transportation, which includes pollution. Pollution means the harmful wastes produced by humans which damage our environment in many ways. The fast population growth rate of humans means that the necessity for transportation vehicles is also enormously increasing.
Other efforts to become more competitive have translated into the European Union dropping trade barriers and European carmakers employing cost reducing efforts. American manufacturers have seen 2-3% growth over the last few years. Some current trends are the explosion in popularity of the Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) and big luxury vehicles. In the future the global car market is full of potential. There are currently 44 million vehicles and by the year 2002 experts estimate that number will grow to 64 million.
We must call up the conscience of our drivers and shanghai government to take actions to protect the environment, and keep the pollution as low as we can. This essay will look at the advantage and disadvantage of the government making car owners buy rehire which produce less pollution. The advantage of the government making car owners buy new cars replacing old smoke maker will benefit the improving of the environment, also in the same time stimulate the development of the automobile industry, and meanwhile benefit the economic growth. Also the development of the automobile industry will offer an opportunity of social reemployment. On the other hand, this policy can also change people’s perspective of living and consideration of the environmental problems.
More effort is needed from everyone to make this world a better place, and while hybrid vehicles are going to be extremely important, that is not the only thing that can be done. If one is not in a position to be able to drive a hybrid vehicle, other opportunities are out there to help the environment. Recycling is something that always helps the environment, and doing things such as walking, riding a bike, or even taking the bus can have bigger impact than is thought. This writer concludes that hybrid vehicles are an integral part of making a greener environment. Without them, along with the increasing rate of pollution, many countries are headed on a crash course for disaster.
Environmental factors such as fuel economy, fuel emission and clean air regulations are the main concerns of the public. To achieve this task, cost reduction remains very important in the automotive industry. Environmental concerns are driving the automobile’s design and development to comply with governmental rules and regulations. These changes are forcing the manufactures to come up with fuel efficient alternatives and new emission controls with the objective or reducing the negative environmental impact that is damaging the environment. General Motors the top leader in the motor vehicle industry turns all negative threats into a positive.
It is evident that engine emissions account for a considerable amount of environmental pollution through release of smoke. The new rules places Ford at a strategic position to offer solutions in producing environmentally friendly engines. In the... ... middle of paper ... ...ted. Long-term objectives • Penetrating different markets other than the US and Europe. • Maximize on production of fuel-efficient hybrid engines.
One of most environmental impacted modes of intermodal transportation is over the road truck. The industry aims to reducing emission from the surface mode of truck by increasing the use of alternative fuels and use of less pollutions modes such as carpooling and route sharing. Today’s consumers is having a hard time avoiding products manufactured and transported overseas, as economic globalization moves more goods from factories to major markets throughout the world (Corbett, Winebrake J. 2007). The push by the consumer for goods coming from location has a great effect on emission and global warming.
Pollution means the harmful wastes produced by humans which damage our environment in many ways. The fast population growth rate of humans means that the necessity for transportation vehicles is also enormously increasing. Studies have shown that in 1999 the worldwide number of vehicles registered was 700 million. From this huge number of vehicles, the US has a
Electric car is vehicle that is derived by at least one electric motor. It turns electric energy stored in rechargeable batteries into movement. Electric cars can make United States more competitive and environmentally cleaner. Electric cars kill many birds by one stone: less pollution, environmental security, reliable, and deflate oil demand. However, the government should subsidize them by reducing registration penalties, and encourage companies that are producing electric cars; for example, the pluses of these cars extend to several areas, and they deserve government support.
The first concerns about auto emissions reestablished interest in electric vehicles. From then on, car companies strive to make better fuel efficient cars and hybrids. From the 1960s to now there has been major improvements in the technology of the hybrid car. Some improvements include the phase out of the NiCad battery. up until 2010, every hybrid vehicle operates using a Nickel-Cadmium battery pack to store power for its electric motor.
