Imagine a world without pollution. A world where the oceans are blue. A green world with beautiful skies. Have you wondered why pollution is such a huge problem in the world? Fossil fuels, an
energy resource formed from
organisms that lived a long
time ago. Fossil fuels are used
to power our cars and create
electricity. The down side to
fossil fuels is that they create
a lot of pollution. Why do
people still use fossil fuels if
they create so much pollution?
It’s because they are cheap
and create a lot of energy. A
no pollution emitting hybrid of
air and hydrogen fuel cell will
be the best choice for a green world.
Although there are many other alternative energy choices, but they all have drawbacks. One other alternative energy resource is the electric cars. Electric car create no pollution when driving, but it creates pollution to make the electricity and the batteries that store electricity are heavy which creates less speed. Another alternative energy is the solar car which runs the sun by solar panels and it creates no pollution. Although it may sounds great the solar panels are expensive and the car gets really hot. Biofuel is another alternative energy source. It is made out of corn and creates a lot less pollution than fossil fuels. It is often mixed with petroleum and it higher the products that use corn so it’s not exactly the best choice. That's why the best choice for a car is a hybrid of air and hydrogen fuel cell.
At first, the hybrid's accelerator operates a valve on its tank that allows air to be released into a pipe and then into the engine, where the pressure
of the air's expansion will push against the pistons and turn the crankshaft. This will produce enough
power for speeds of about 35 miles. When the air car surpasses that speed, a motor will ...
