For many decades now, we have known that we are facing an environmental crisis. Global warming and climate change are threatening our existence. Fossil fuels play a significant role. Experts believe that the continued use of gasoline-powered vehicles will be fatal for the environment. That is why they are promoting the use of electric cars. Here are some of its important benefits.
Better Air Quality
There is no doubt that vehicles cause air pollution. Thousands of people around the world are suffering from several respiratory illnesses that are caused by air pollution. Since there are no fossil fuels used to run electric cars, there won’t be any harmful pollutants released into the air. That means this new transportation technology makes the air cleaner and does not cause any health problems.
Reduce CO2 Emissions
Climate change is one of the greatest problems we are facing today. One of the main reasons for climate change is the excess CO2 in the atmosphere. Excess CO2 emission is due to the burning of fossil fuels and with the use of this future transport technology, we can significantly reduce the emissions of CO2. Many countries around the world are introducing electric vehicles into their public transportation. This will have a great impact on reducing global warming.
Reduce Fossil Fuel Demand
We know that the burning of fossil fuels is responsible for climate change and global warming. One of the easiest ways to prevent that is by undermining the demand for fossil fuels. More than 80 % of the world’s energy consumption is from fossil fuels. The best way to reduce fossil fuel demand is by switching to electric cars. There is no need for any fossil fuel energy for an electric car to run.
Reduce Noise Pollution
Millions of people around the world say that experiencing noise pollution harms their daily life. Not only is it annoying, but noise pollution can also cause many health problems. Human ears can only tolerate noise that is up to 85 decibels. If it goes beyond this limit, it may lead to ear damage. Electric cars do not make much noise; they are almost silent.
Leads To Sustainable Consumption
Sustainable consumption is one of the problems we face today. We do not have products that last longer; that includes cars. Many experts are saying that the survival of the human race depends on sustainable consumption. Electric cars can last significantly longer than normal cars. The maintenance costs of electric cars are also lower.
