The negative effect of carbon emissions is a topic at the forefront of discussion – how can we reduce, or even eliminate them, in the future? Combustion-engine vehicles are one of the major contributors to carbon emissions, therefore in order to reduce emissions we must find a workable alternative energy to fossil fuels, and ideally one that is renewable.
According to the World Health Organisation, 900,000 people die each year from causes directly attributable to outdoor air pollution. Combustion-engine vehicles contribute heavily to air pollution, causing respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia, emphysema, bronchitis. An electric car does not generate any of the poisonous gases that cause such illnesses.
Pure electric vehicles are 100% zero-emission at the tail pipe. They create no harmful gases whatsoever, making them infinitely cleaner and better for the environment than combustion-engine vehicles. Using electrical power generation from renewable resources to charge electric vehicles would ensure that the entire process — from energy source to vehicle — would be entirely environmentally friendly.
In 2009, the United Nations released figures showing that green energy overtook fossil fuels in attracting investment for power generation for the first time. Wind, solar and other clean technologies attracted $140bn (£85bn) compared with $110bn for gas and coal for electrical power generation, with more than a third of the green cash destined for Britain and the rest of Europe.
