Environment and Hybrid cars
Why you going to buy a hybrid car? Well it could be for saving money on gas or the benefits it would bring to environment by lessening the carbon dioxide emission. Whichever way you look at it, you cannot ignore hybrid cars and its benefits which is much bigger then the money you are going to save on gas. There is some other goodies for hybrid car owners too in the form of federal tax deductions.
It is very important that one should know the effects of driving a SUV, in relation to global warming. One should try to buy hybrid cars and should take it as his moral responsibility. Burning gasoline or diesel produces harmful gases, which adds greenhouses gases. This includes carbon dioxide, which gets accumulated in the earth's atmosphere. The significant portion of infrared radiation is prevented from escaping to the space due to the blanket like effect of these greenhouse gases. This phenomenon in turn trap heat and increases the temperature of earth as a whole.
Conventional vehicles burn more fuel and thus add more carbon dioxide to the environment. Every gallon of gasoline burnt from a car adds 20 pounds of carbon dioxide to the environment. Choosing a vehicle, which gives higher fuel economy, could greatly reduce this. Hybrid car fits these requirements and is best bet in the present times. 15 tons of green house gases could be prevented if one uses a car with 25 miles per gallon rather than 20 miles per gallon over the lifetime of vehicle.
