    1. Using an EV car in the US is helps improve the environment. US relies on green energy to help accommodate the EV cars, but the same can not be said for some countries. Countries such as China who rely on fossil fuel rather than green energy; driving an EV car would not be healthy for the environment. Charging the car in China would hurt the environment rather than improve it.

    1. Cars have been made to run on gas or diesel depending on what type of fuel is required. Recently auto manufactures have been producing cars that run on electricity. This sounds fantastic and all but in most cases the electric cars are just as bad as gas cars. There is only a 5% difference in the Co2 level produced with electric cars. Most countries rely on coal or natural gas power plants to create a most of their power. This effects the environment.

  18. It seems counterintuitive to question the benefit of electric cars that emit no greenhouse gases; nonetheless, they’re not always beneficial. If all of the world had renewable resources, electric vehicles would be more beneficial, but for only a 5% difference in CO2 emissions it is not worth it. Electric cars charge off of electricity grids that rely on burning fossil fuels, which in turn creates CO2. However in some countries, such as Norway, that rely heavily on hydropower it would be more beneficial to drive electric vehicles because of the decrease in CO2 emissions.

  19. Although the goal of driving an electric vehicle is to benefit the environment, this type of car only generates 4.9% less Co2 emissions globally compared to traditional petroleum-run vehicles. These emissions are detrimental, proving that electric cars are essentially ineffective in improving the quality of air.

  20. EVs are not any better than an gas powered car because of the power because of what it takes to create the power to move the car is worst than a regular gas car. The difference of CO2 is only 4.9%. It would make more sense to drive an EV in Norway because there you be making a bigger difference.

  22. Since in some countries, it takes more carbon dioxide released to power electric cars, it is safer for the environment to continue to drive cares that run on gas. there is only a 4.9 percent difference in emissions released when comparing the product of powering gas powered cars to electric powered cars. Some countries don’t have the luxury of relying on hydroelectric, wind, or solar power, since in some places, the conditions it needs to create power are not consistent.

  23. Electric cars hurt rather than help in countries where they charge off of electricity grids that rely heavily on burning of fossil fuels, which in turn creates CO2 and other greenhouse gases. Greenhouse gases are the cause of global warming; slowly but surely our planet is suffering the consequences. If every country switched to electric cars the effect would hurt all of us.

  24. People may questions whether or not buying an electric car is actually helpful for the environment or country they live in. Driving an electric vehicle can be beneficial for countries such as the U.S and the Netherlands. But, for countries such as China and Japan they have disadvantages. China and Japan rely on fossil fuels for their energy. When countries rely on fossil fuels for their energy, electric cars take away Electric cars only produce an average of 4.9% less of CO2 produced per kWh than the CO2 associated with using power vehicles. This percentage difference is not worth it.

  25. I find it counterintuitive that electric and petroleum powered vehicles only have a 4.9% emissions difference. Electric vehicles are powered by electric batteries while petroleum vehicles are powered by regular fossil fuels. By themselves, electric vehicles do not hurt the environment, it is how they are powered. Countries like China and the United States are powered by electric power grids that are fueled by coal. When you charge your electric car, you use more electricity which burns more coal, causing more CO2 to be released. However, in countries like Norway and France; electric vehicles reduce CO2 emissions because those countries rely on clean energy sources.

  26. With the question of whether or not electric cars are beneficial to the environment, the difference of CO2 emissions would only be 5% from gasoline powered cars which doesn’t apply for major countries like China, who burns mass amounts of coal. To successfully change the environment for the better, the countries getting involved in the production of electric cars needs to be analyzed. Some countries, like Norway and France, use non-carbon sources making the use of an electric car actually beneficial. On the other hand, countries like Japan and China use mass amounts of fossil fuels, making it much worse in the sense that more harmful gases are suffocating the air. China just produced 300,000 more electric cars, hurting their people and making this, now, a global concern. To help clean the air, we need to see where electric cars will benefit and where gasoline powered cars should stay.

  27. It seems counterintuitive to the question of driving an electric car may hurt certain countries but not all. Norway and Netherlands handle the EV situation differently than other countries like China and Japan who rely heavily on petroleum. Norway and Netherland rely mostly on renewable resources where they benefit from having electric vehicles; but with only a 5% difference it still hurts the environment with CO2 emission.

  28. It seems counterintuitive to question how electric powered cars hurt the environment just as much as gas powered cars do. Yes gas powered cars polute the are with the tail pipe by giving off CO2. But with electric powered cars even though they may not have a tail pipe, they rely on electricity which causes industries to burn more fossil fuels and therefore poluting the enviroment that way.

  29. The issue with replacing petroleum vehicles with electric vehicles to reduce emissions is that it might not work on a global scale. Some countries rely too heavily on fossil fuels, therefore by using electric vehicles the fuel required to make electricity would still be releasing CO2 into the environment. The only way that electric cars would reduce emissions globally is if all countries switched to power production that doesn’t require fossil fuels.

  31. It seems counterintuitive to question the good of electric cars, when they produce no gas; although this is not always the truth. Driving electric vehicles in countries that depend heavily on fossil fuels does not reduce the CO2 emissions, as some people may think. In actuality, driving an electric vehicle in certain countries produce more CO2 because of the fossil fuels used to charge the vehicle. In countries where electricity is powered by nuclear plants, would benefit by using electric cars.
