So before we move on to the other kinds of pollution, let us recap on what we have learnt about which cars are best, in the fight to prevent global warming. Straight away we can see that Hybrid cars have pulled an early lead. One thing is certain, Hybrid cars are categorically the best car to buy if you want to do your bit to prevent global warming. What is puzzling, is that Electric cars are not. It is a great injustice that our governments choose to offer the owners of Electric cars such attractive tax breaks and buying incentives, when they are not actually the best option for our planet.
Owners of electric cars are not subject to the inflated fuel cost and road tax, that the rest of us are; where as they are actually one of the biggest contributors to CO2 production, and in turn global warming. What is also interesting, is that Diesel cars are also a good choice, where as they are receiving a lot of negative press at the moment.
This data also highlights one more crucial thing, people are starting to move from Diesel engines and change back to Petrol. But in reality Petrol engines, are still a highly polluting medium. Perhaps more should be done to make people aware of the facts surrounding the different types of fuel?
So lets now move on to how fuel effects the immediate environment, where the car is driven.
