What is a Hybrid Car?

The word Hybrid means ¨both¨- a mixture of two different elements and in this case electricity and gasoline. Therefor, a Hybrid car runs on both electricity and gas, but more on gas. A Hybrid car has two motors, one for electricity and one for gasoline. An electric motor is charged and a gasoline motor is filled with gas.

What is the solution?

The solution is more people buying Hybrid cars, which runs on electricity and gas. More people should start buying Hybrid cars because gasoline cars are polluting our environment.

Why?

  • Saves you money over time
  • Using an electric motor to conserve amount of fossil fuel being used
  • Most Hybrid's have better gas mileage
  • Better for the environment
  • It uses a small amount of gas, which is expensive

Car Pollution in the Carbon Cycle

Regular cars that run on gasoline release fossil fuels, which contain carbon, into the air. This plays a big part in the carbon cycle because it allows for a mass amount of carbon to be added into the atmosphere. Although some of this added carbon can be helpful for plants in order to carry out photosynthesis, too much carbon can also hurt the environment, which is why regular cars are becoming a problem in the environment.

Opposing Evidence

  • Has an expensive upfront cost
  • There are more variation styles in gasoline cars
  • It takes a long time to start saving money
  • Hybrid's have two motors, which makes the car very expensive
