Cars are necessary for us in order to go from one destination to another, from home to work and vice-versa. Do you know that you are driving a car contribute to the growing environment problem – climate change? If you have no idea, read on in order to be enlightened.
The following are three effects of cars to our environment:
1. Quality of the air
Air pollution is getting worst, especially at places where there is traffic congestion due to a number of cars on the street. As it increases, the risk of getting diseases such as neurological, cardiovascular, and respiratory is at high. This is a pity for those who are living within the area where there are lots of cars emitting carbon dioxide. They are prone to getting such diseases.
2. Emission of greenhouse gases
Have you observed that the temperature during summer 20 years ago is not as high during summer of last year? This is due to the emission of the carbon dioxide. As the years go by, there has been an increase in carbon dioxide emission. It causes the Earth to heat up and much so it becomes not tolerable in some tropical countries. This has even lead to changes in global climate. It led to having the risk of a person’s health all the way to death at very high temperature.
Do you know that urban noise is due to road traffic? This can lead disturbance to those working at the office. People cannot relax or sleep properly. Plus, it can even lead to mental stress as well. On worst cases, noise can lead to physical problems like heart disease, chronic exhaustion as well as high blood pressure.
There you have it, three effects of cars to our environment. We cannot put a stop to this. However, what we can do is to lessen it through using hybrid cars or cars powered by biofuel. This will have a little effect today. However, if all of car owners will make a shift. It will lead to something good. Being aware of what cars, emission of carbon dioxide do to the environment will yield to make us question ourselves and do something about it.
Are you going to be a contributor to our environment’s worst situation or are you going to be a contributor of change? Take your choice. The future of the next generation depends on what we do today.
