The batteries are large and full of acid making them potentially deadly. How stuff works science experts say I agree that the battery building process is dirty and is not environmentally friendly. The battery building process is the worst part of building the car for the environment. 20 to 30 percent of the pollution that comes from the battery building process. According to How stuff works science article.Toyota admits that the production of its lightweight Prius requires more energy and emits more carbon dioxide than the production of its gas-only
People everywhere are switching to electric vehicles because of their nonharmful effects on the environment, availability of new charging stations, and cost-efficient charging. One reason electric vehicles are becoming more of a reality is because of the harmful effects gas and diesel cars are causing on our environment. The car I drive does not seems like it would
Fossil fuels have for decades been a main source of energy for the United States, However such nonrenewable energy has managed to decimate the environment by weakening the ozone and increase global temperatures. The issue at hand is that these fuels are at the foundation of the U.S. economy and removing them would ruin countless businesses and leave thousands, if not millions, jobless as well as harm U.S. infrastructure. Altogether they are tightly integrated in society and have proven difficult to remove. Although some argue that it is unrealistic to expect corporations to end the burning of fossil fuels for the purpose of benefiting the environment, such corporations should be legally penalized because temperatures are rapidly rising and
Due to misunderstanding of people towards the environment, the country is getting worse. In fact Honduras is mainly contaminated because of Carbon monoxide from vehicles and Industry , Drains or sewage contaminated sea or rivers,and the squander of important natural resources. In fact Honduras is mainly contaminated because of Carbon monoxide from vehicles and Industry. Recently this has been a problem that has increased because of how popular cars had become. Some people prefer to use a car
Given the information provided in the film, I believe electric cars are a reasonable alternative to combustion engines because they don’t produce harmful emissions like gasoline cars do. According to the film, even the first electric cars were quiet, fast, and produced no exhaust. This is a clear advantage over combustion engines, which produces exhaust that contains carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxide. Not only do they produce no emissions, but electric cars do not need as much maintenance as combustion engines do. This is due to the fact that there are no spark plugs or oil to be changed.
Associations like MADD speak about how the higher MLDA has made the roads safer, but they refuse to admit that it is not the only reason. Before the raising of the MLDA there was a statistic recorded, “Rate of accident and fatalities in the 1980’s decreased less than that of European countries whose legal drinking ages are lower than 21,”( “Drinking Age”). Previously, before the MLDA was raised, traffic incidents relating to alcohol were very scarce; America was a safe place to drive. One factor often forgotten is that, some people are irresponsible and develop bad habits. Therefore someone will always fail to abide by the rules.
Without it we would be dead from the dehydration. Fracking in this case can contaminate it to where we cannot drink it and if we do it can lead to death or a trip to the hospital: Drinking water sources have been contaminated with explosive methane, as well as other dangerous substances, such as benzene and arsenic, that can cause cancer and other serious illnesses. Toxic chemicals, as well as erosion and runoff from drilling operations, have fouled
The only difference comes in the fact that in electric vehicles, they have more of them which are used to power the engine. Electric cars are entirely charged by the electricity you provide, which means you don’t need to buy gas again. Driving cars that need gas can burn a hole in your pocket. With electric cars, this cost can be avoided as an average person spends $2000 to $4000 on gas each year. Though electricity isn’t free, an electric car is far cheaper to run.
I believe that coal is bad for the earth, plants, animals and humans based on the information I have collected. Coal can hurt the earth and also cause air pollution. We have to find a way to make coal produced energy extinct. Coal and why it’s dirty: Coal… if tiny doses of these chemicals get into our drinking water we will most likely get really sick and/or die. Did you know that coal powers 39% of the world’s energy, and coal is the most used energy source!
Over 10 people die from smoking every minute. Some people think it 's okay to smoke, they also think I doesn’t hurt them. But smoking is one of the main deaths in the U.S. Even though people know that smoking is not good for your health. There are so many people that die from smoking, the stuff inside cigarettes are the things that get you addicted and kills you, and it affects you body in so many ways.
There are many positive outcomes from fracking, but it polluted the environment. As fracking can help get natural gas, it puts harsh chemicals in the air. In the town of Dish is in Texas, there has been toxic chemical brewing in the air from “cracked Barnett Shale more than two kilometers beneath the surface” said David Biello. Also fracking has created water pollution; water pollution is from leaks in wells that are poorly cased. David Biello states that “leaks from badly cased wells contaminated drinking water wells—and one even exploded” which shows that when things are not done properly problems can occur (Scientific American).
Fracking uses dangerous chemicals, chemicals that are bad for one’s personal health at the same time, the health of the environment. There are a known 750 chemicals…. 26 of which are either likely or known carcinogens (Is Fracking A Good Idea? 12). Many chemicals that could be harmful to you are not just the ones they put into the ground, but some that come up from the ground can also harm you.
Natural gas can be extremely dangerous when spilled or leaked. Natural gas is highly flammable and can catch fire easily, when a spark or flame is introduced to this gas it will cause a very dangerous fire explosion. Because natural gas is full of carbon it can cause Carbon Monoxide. Carbon Monoxide is very important, it causes headaches fuzzy vision, and fatigue. When inhaled it stops the oxygen that gets to the brain and can be life threatening.
