Fully charged shows why you don’t save the world by driving an EV
Coincidently, a study conducted by NTU Singapore have shown that carbon black air pollution is linked to an increase in pulmonary adenocarcinoma (LADC) cases worldwide. Carbon black is produced by burning fossil fuels, but it is also used in tires. Some of these particles can be generated by rubber powder.
What is the Fully loaded The video helps demonstrate that anything that uses tires will cause pollution. The heavier the vehicle, the more particles it will generate. As Helen Czerski recalls in the video, no technology is perfect, which doesn’t mean that its downsides make it undesirable.
Electric cars are better than ICE vehicles because they are more efficient machines. With the energy contained in 16.6 gallons (62.8 liters) of gasoline, Jason Fenske traveled 1,963 miles on a road trip. This happens because much of the energy in fuels is flushed down the toilet in engines: the best use only 40%, while most use only 20%. Electric motors convert about 90% of electricity in motion.
Electric vehicles are also quiet, which makes people say they have no soul. The practical effect is that they reduce noise pollution as well as toxic gases. What they cannot avoid, at least so far, are particles. Some will try to convince you that this is why you should use a bicycle on the roads or walk 50 miles a day.
Saving the world means saving resources, using them without waste and making them last as long as possible. To our knowledge, there is only one automaker with such concerns. Everyone else wants to pump as many vehicles as possible, consuming whatever is needed to get there.
In short, saving the world involves using what’s between your ears to avoid repeating unrelated slogans just to look good. It hurts the very ideas that you think you are promoting.
