Andrew Chase 11/30/3009 Electric Cars There are many pros and cons of an electric car. The first benefit of an electric car would be the environmental effect. Electric cars produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline vehicles, which would help fight global warming. Electric cars would also improve air quality due to the fact that they give off close to zero emissions. However, electric cars do use electricity which is predominately created by using fossils fuels. In order for electric cars to be more environmentally friendly the United States will need more nuclear, solar, geothermal or hydroelectric plants to compensate for this increase in electricity usage. The most important benefit of an electric car is that it will lower our dependence on foreign oil. The United States imports more than 65 percent of its foreign crude oil. 1 Most of this essential oil that our country greatly depends on comes from countries that have been known to harbor terrorists.

    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.
