How Does Car Pollution Affect the Environment & Ozone Layer?. More likely than not, getting a vehicle from point "A" to point "B" involves combustion of a fossil fuel, a process that emits gasses. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES Schmid 5. in that natural gas and coal make up 64% of America's produced energy. Natural gas produces roughly half of the amount of emissions that coal does, but if two thirds of the country's energy is coming from these non-renewable sources, the amount of emissions is still high. TheAuthor: Ashley Schmid.

This means the environmental impact of electrical cars can be a positive addition to our transportation networks. By not requiring ongoing oil consumption for direct combustion, the number of emissions produced by our transportation needs can be reduced. Yet the environmental impact of electric cars is often seen as a net negative experience. Common Sense Media editors help you choose Environmental Books for Kids.

However, once an EV rolls out of a factory and onto the road, it doesn’t take long forAuthor: Christian Wardlaw.   Let’s say again that the average American car moves 25 miles per gallon, with each car carrying, on average, people.
