Electric Cars Can Be Really Good For The Environment

Apr 30, 2016 05:57 AM EDT | Catherin Lue


As the Tesla's Model 3 reservations ballooned to high numbers and its coveted release draws nearer, other known auto brands like General Motors, Nissan, and Hyundai have also joined in on the environment-friendly car trend. Electric sedans, SUVS and concept cars have one thing in common, and that's to revolutionize the auto industry one model at a time.

The energy sector is also undergoing many developments, according to Bloomberg. Executives have been bringing up their cases to the government in the hopes of curtailing restrictions on the use of charging stations and renewable energy technology.

With these revolutionary changes, auto companies have been reeling over diesel emissions and critical safety scandals and the public is now questioning the reliability of their cars. Elon Musk's EVs have led the way so far, and a different perspective is being studied on the contribution in minimizing dangerous climate change that's been plaguing countries worldwide.

The benefits that these electric cars can give are limitless, if government regulations show a bit more leniency as the movement to eliminating threatening climate change can be zeroed out with these technologies. Director Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University's Earth Institute said that a streamlined strategy is, however, necessary and offered key suggestions such as fossil-fuel generated electricity and eliminate carbon power, according to the news agency.

In a related Wall Street Journal post, scientists have monitored and announced that should the Earth's temperature goes up a notch higher, catastrophic risks are bound to rise also. News circuits have long reported on the extreme climate changes that have happened in unlikely cities such as Shanghai, Miami, and even the UK as well as elevated heat conditions in the Middle East and Africa.

The goal to completely zero out carbon production and diesel emissions have been seen as inspiration by auto companies to rethink the technologies they put into their new models. Much progress is still expected, though.
