Why Drive Electric Cars?

According to the Energy Information Administration (Energy Information Administration, February 2008) there were 2.6 billion tons of carbon emissions from automobiles in the U.S. in 2005. This number is up from 2.1 billion in 1995 which is a 16% increase in ten years. This is just one problem presented to Americans by the internal combustion engines that will be used in 262 million vehicles in 2010 according to estimates by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Bureau of Transportation Statistics (Traffic Congestion and Reliability, February 2008).


With rising fuel prices, the American lifestyle is being held hostage by foreign oil producing nations, some of which might also want to do America harm. Increasing air pollution is affecting the health of all people and has a direct impact on global warming. It's time for new strategies in transportation and while there are many solutions, the first step may be with an old technology, the electric car. There are many transportation options available that could help resolve these issues, however of all of the forms of transportation options the electric car is the most affordable, the easiest transportation method to implement and could have the greatest immediate impact on oil usage and air pollution.
