Environmental Friendliness of Electric Vehicles

Electric cars have always come in and out of popularity since their creation. In 1900 they were popular as they were 28% of all cars created at that time says the American Census from 1905. As we have become more concerned over our environmental impact on our earth we have tried to find what we can do to save our planet. This has been by reducing plastic usage, recycling, and trying to cut down on using non reusable resources. The newest and most promising way to help save the environment is by bringing back these electric cars. With current technology these cars have advanced to now become better in many ways than traditional gas or diesel powered vehicles. The downsides is that these electric cars still find ways to run on gas, diesel, and even coal. While many believe that these electric cars are going to save the earth we tend not to focus on the dirty side of clean energy. 

The Dirty Side of Clean Energy Vehicles

Electric cars are believed to be the future and are currently taking over our roads, but what many don’t know is that electric cars have always come in and out of popularity since their creation since 1890. In 1900 electric cars were popular as they were 28% of all cars created at that time says the American Census from 1905. The electricity produced for those cars was made from coal energy which is much worse than gasoline and diesel emissions. Electric cars have now had a major comeback and have finally stuck for what seems to be the long run in an effort to save the environment. These cars don’t have emissions coming out of a tailpipe like gas or diesel vehicles, but still run on gasoline, diesel, and even one hundred and thirty one years later electric vehicles still run on coal. While many believe that these electric cars are going to save the earth we tend not to realize that there is a dirty side to this clean energy.
