Electric cars remain to be the best in terms of environmental friendliness. Although those against electric vehicles say that as long as it uses gasoline for internal combustion, it is still unconducive for the environment.
Specialists argue that it is unconventional to say that electric vehicles are ‘greener’ because they consider the sources of electricity for these vehicles. They say that it is these sources of power that are replacing the cars that polluted the air by combusting fuel. A recent study, however, seems to counteract these allegations. The research shows that electric vehicles have handled environmental challenges effectively, especially in countries whose primary source of power is coal.
Research by the universities of Cambridge, Exeter, and Nijmegen shows that the shift to electric cars results in the reduction of carbon emission save for the fact that these vehicles depend on energy generated from fuels. Many argue with the latter point that electricity plants consume fossil fuels. Therefore they still are a threat to climate change.
Research shows that it will be conventionally efficient to shift to electric cars which are overly better than petrol cars. It is because they have a high chance of minimizing air pollution in the environment.
Countries that depend on renewable energy and nuclear-generated energy as the power for running electric vehicles, like France, have seen a decrease in carbon emissions to a large extent. Those countries which depend on gas power plants to run their electric cars, like the UK, are reporting to have reduced emissions though not as high as the former.
It, therefore, implies that countries which are adopting electric vehicles(EVs) as a replacement for petrol cars will experience fewer carbon emissions compared to those that still produce new and improvised petrol cars. EVs are proving to be more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Research forecasts that shortly the electric vehicles will phase out petrol cars, and this will result in a subsequent drop in the carbon dioxide emitted by half of what is being issued currently in countries like Russia and Germany.
It also goes on to the other electric heating equipment. It will phase out the fossil fuel alternatives, and there will be a consequent reduction in carbon emissions. It includes electric heaters, pumps, and kettles.
To conclude, it is idealistic to consider replacing petrol run machines with electric ones so that global carbon dioxide emission reduces and climate change positively impacted.
