For my enrich assignment I choose to write an essay based on the claim that hybrid vehicles or power cells are only positive for the environment. I seek to understand the many pros and cons with this idea. Under initial review it seems like there wouldn’t be any cons to this. We have used fossil fuels and the environment and atmosphere has empirically changed for the worse. Global warming is a proven fact as well as the air pollution having negative effects for humans and all living things. I found a wonderful article regarding this subject from Applied Energy. The article is titled “Environmental consequences of the use of batteries in low carbon systems: The impact of battery production.” In this peer review article, it discusses the common use of using small scale batteries to replace common petroleum energy. Instead of using explosive mechanical energy it uses variable electric energy. This is accomplished by using lithium and other materials.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
