The Future of Transportation
Electric Vehicles
Too Much Carbon Dioxide
Saving Nature
Every minute we emit 400 pounds of carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide floats up to the atmosphere and raises heat levels which is very bad for the plants. Raising heat levels means hotter climates. The heat is bad for the plants so that means that it is bad for us too.

A third of this goes into the ocean. Carbon dioxide is raising acidic levels in the ocean. This is very bad for the fish and coral. The heat makes coral dispel algae which is fatal because the algae give them up to 90% of their energy. The sea and nature are important because they give us water and food.

Trees are important to us. If there is no ocean there is no water. If there is no water there are no trees. No trees equals no oxygen. Without oxygen we will die quickly. That is why we need to use electric vehicles.
Fuel Cells
By: Thomas, Ram, and Ethan
Electricity is the future of transportation. It does not emit any CO2, It is more efficient than ICE because they have 70% less moving parts so 90% of the energy is converted to motion.

No matter how efficient an EV is, it's batteries will eventually run down. this is due to decreasing electric pressure, or voltage. In a battery, voltage is created by the attraction of the electrons in the anode to the protons in the cathode. The bigger the difference is between those positive and negative charges, the higher the voltage will be. As an EV draws current from the battery, however, electrons migrate from the anode to the cathode, and the charges at the two electrodes start to balance out. The battery has to be recharged-that is, the electrons have to be sent back to the anode-before the car will drive any further.

Electric vehicles will take more than a decade for car manufactures and consumers to make change to another fuel source and energy form. This is why the insight and technology to move toward wider use of electric vehicles must be developed today if we are to have if we are to have electricity-powered cars in near the future. Batteries are expensive, so electrical vehicles should be more expensive than gas-powered options. Batteries are also still sensitive to temperature, so they tend to lose energy when it is cold outside and when you use the car's heating system it drains the power significantly.

Unlike a gasoline tank which can be refueled in minutes, an EV takes up to 10 hours to recharge! The battery range varies deeply on driving habits such as terrain, speed, and use of air conditioning. Range of an EV can go from 75 to 200 miles before recharging. This is a serious issue for long road trips.

Electricity is the future of transportation!

We emit carbon dioxide
when we drive.
Driving Question
What can we do to improve cars so that the emit less Co2 and so they are eco-friendly?

Alternative Fuels
E-85 is an example of ethanol and M-85 is an example of methanol.
Differences between electrical and gasoline vehicles
The most popular alternative to gasoline is Ethanol which is a mixture of gasoline and corn fuel. Ethanol fuel is ethanol (ethyl alcohol), the same type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages. It is most often used as a motor fuel, mainly as a bio-fuel additive for gasoline.

Vegetable oil is a triglyceride extracted from a plant. You can't use vegetable oil as fuel because it is illegal. Vegetable oil is highly flammable like propane.

Algae bio-fuel is an alternative to fossil fuel that uses algae as its source of natural deposits.Even though it is an alternative you can't fill up anywhere!

Natural gas is a fossil fuel formed when layers of buried plants, gases, and animals are exposed to intense heat and pressure over thousands of years. It also can come in a liquid form.

Bio-diesel is the most common bio-fuel in Europe. It is produced from oils or fats using transmogrification and is a liquid similar in composition to fossil/mineral diesel.

Propane is a heavy flammable gaseous alkaline C3H8 found in crude petroleum and natural gas and used especially as fuel and in chemical synthesis.

Methanol is a fuel like ethanol but it is more harmful to the environment. Even though that is more harmful than ethanol, it is cheaper to make than most alternative fuels.
Using electric vehicles is the solution to global warming and if we use electric cars we could cause less pollution because they don't pollute like regular/gasoline cars. If we use electrical vehicles most of our pollution problem would be gone. Now most of you would say "Nah I won't spend my precious money on that while I could buy something else fabulous" but you should know that if we use gasoline fueled cars we all would be barbecued to death that means that all of us and other living things would be extinct. Pollution causes the heat level of the atmosphere to rise and because of this rising temperature we would get dehydrated and most likely we would be extinct. While many of you guys are still polluting other people try to save the world by using electricity but if we use eco-friendly ways to generate electricity we won't be harming the environment and no one will be facing extinction. Our solution works because electric vehicles are efficient and they don't pollute. Even though electric vehicles charge times are long they can be reduced by using eco-friendly alternative fuels. Don't care about money care about the environment!!

Improving Cars
Engineers and Gas stations
Engineers and gas stations will lose money because they calculate how to mine oil and sell gasoline. If we use electric cars they will lose money.
