The planet Earth is experiencing high levels of pollution these days, partly due to the increasing activities of man in the various enterprise, that produce huge amounts of carbon footprints, and as well as the stubborn disregard of several corporations of environmental policies, especially in the field of carbon emissions. Even though some scientists could argue that we’re progressively killing the atmosphere, some still think that our actions are essential evils to become able to perform the day-to-day functions important towards the improvement of the top quality of human life.
A lot of people may say that they can’t be worried about what’s happening to the environment because, in a closer perspective, they’re already worrying enough how to put food on the table every day. So they must work, consume gasoline, and burn fuel, to the demise of the planet. However, that point of view is no longer applicable today, especially when the effects of pollution and environmental damage from human actions, have started eating away at our natural resources and our food source.
How do we draw the line between our dependence on the use of fossil fuels, and the necessity to prevent the slow degradation of the human condition due to the deteriorating health of the planet? In as much as we say that for every action, there is a consequence, the reality of our situation forces us to take a step back, and consider whether there is a better way of doing things, that may be able to bridge our need to take care of the environment, without compromising our regular daily activities.
The top minds working in part with the biggest oil conglomerates and auto-makers have presented a breakthrough, nearly a decade ago, that may be able to suffice our requirements of cutting carbon emission and saving the planet at the same time; and the product, hybrid vehicles.
Full hybrid vehicles running on electricity, and some on bio-diesel, have cut down carbon emission and gasoline consumption in several countries, and will surely help in slowly minimizing the damage of the ozone layer from prevalent greenhouse gasses. With the right initiative and government support, a lot of people can still cherish the positive benefits of green technology and green vehicles.
With the world’s best minds putting together the best technologies at our disposal to create new equipments and vehicles, that can decrease emission levels, it becomes a clear fact that there’s still hope to save our beautiful blue and green planet, Earth.
