The idea of inventing environmentally friendly cars seems to originate from the awareness of the fact that people can no longer sustain on fuels made of fossils. Petroleum, the base form of gasoline, cannot be renewed and it comes from the remains of dinosaurs and long-dead plants that form hydrocarbon substances under the pressure of the earth’s crusts. The process of forming petroleum deep beneath the earth is a millennia-long one and it takes a lot of different things to form it—things that no one can reproduce up to this point, mainly due in large part to the fact that, well, humans have not occupied the planet for that amount of time needed for the substance to form.
The discovery of petroleum changes the world’s industry forever. Machines and engines can now operate without having to rely on steams or coals, which take a lot of process before being accessible as energy sources. Automotive industry seems to be the one sector that benefits from the presence of petroleum the most. Cars are mass-produced annually to meet public’s needs and while the rising number of sales is anticipated, the supply of petroleum as the base form of gasoline depletes. The environmentally friendly cars, therefore, seem to be to most logical counter to the problem at hands.
With the environmentally friendly cars, the need of petroleum can be reduced, if not entirely obviated. By creating engines that do not (entirely) consume gas to operate, the supply of petroleum can be saved. Also, by using cars that are environmentally friendly, the damage to the planet can be mitigated rather efficiently. Carbon emissions from cars or other vehicles using gasoline can have a great impact on ozone layers and chances of global warming also rises. It is time to make green cars and vehicles more appealing to the public.
