Up until this point the automotive industry has largely relied on dinosaurs to power their products. Now, as Climate Change becomes even more evident, we must listen to the polar bears and move towards a different energy source to power our beloved cars.
So, What are Our Options?
Option 1: A Shock
Companies such as Tesla have revolutionized the electric car and it looks like it’s here to stay. Other car companies have tried to compete with Elon Musk by reveling their own versions of an all-electric car. These companies include; General Motors, Nissan, and BMW. Frankly, its fair to say that they don’t hold a candle to what Tesla offers.
Option 2: A Mix
Hybrid powered cars (which contain both gas and electric powered motors), represent the midway point. They harmonically blend technological improvements all while keeping the oil companies happy. They are terrific for now but still rely on the dinosaur juice to get going.
Option 3: Something Wildly Different
After electric and hybrid, we begin to get funky with the hydrogen-powered car. Honda is the first major automotive company to venture down this road, and their troubles have highlighted the tasks complexity. Although hydrogen is the most abundant element on earth, it’s easier to extract gold from Fort Knox then to get un-bonded hydrogen.
The great thing about hydrogen though is that it is not at all harmful to the environment. This is because it only disposes water vapor through its tailpipe (or something along those lines).
After weighing these options, and meeting with the polar bears, I’m personally of the opinion that electric power is the best way to go. So next time you scoff at the Solar Panel loving, Telsa driving, Crunchy Granola Dentist, think about how he has chosen to save us all and values polar bears lives.
