Electric Cars Are Way better than Conventional or Petrol Cars

Critics and minions are arguing that the carbon emissions resulting from the whole process of manufacturing an electric vehicle and its source of power, that is, electricity, are higher than that of a petrol or gasoline car. They say that it is imperatively advantageous to manufacture a petrol car than it would be for an electric vehicle.

The fossil fuel companies are backing up these allegations. It is unfathomable to get to such a point that you believe this lie. Think of it this way, just because electricity generating companies are consuming our products (fossil fuels) to generate electricity, then it is environmentally unfriendly.

To clarify the lies put forward by these folks, scientific inquiries are being made to show that it is safer and cleaner to manufacture and use electric vehicles than it is for fossil fuel cars. A report in the journal Nature Sustainability clarifies the rumors that had been spread about electric vehicles. 

The shift from conventional cars and household heating features to electric vehicles and household appliances suggests reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The only challenge is that the electricity needed for migration is generated from fossil fuels. Therefore alternative sources for electricity production that are renewable and environmentally friendly are being sought.

Study in 53 world regions shows that carbon emissions are going down when electric cars and heat pumps are in use compared to their counterparts like petrol cars. It is also right to note that even if the power sector decarbonization does not go through, there will be a subsequent drop in the greenhouse gases emitted should these regions adopt the former technologies fully.

Dr. Florian Knobloch, who is the lead author from the University of Nijmegen, says that the thought that electric vehicles will raise carbon emissions is a myth. He says that they are researching the replacement of current fossil fuel-intensive equipment with electronic alternatives, and it continues to go without a doubt that they are better in all ways in conserving the environment.

The study by Dr. Florian,  indicates that 70 percent of the emissions by conventional cars will be reduced should electric cars and household heat pumps are put into use in countries like Sweden and France who their primary sources of power are renewables and nuclear. For countries that use fossil fuels to generate electricity, the emissions will reduce by 30 percent.

In conclusion, the only valid reason that electric cars create more emissions in areas where there is a single source of electricity, and that is fossil fuel power plants.
