We could use tin cans, but then the number would be very high and look scary gonk
An electric car won't help the environment if you have to charge it from your home that is powered by a natural gas/coal/petro. power plant neutral That and how to properly recycle the batteries in those electrics matter as well.
I would hope using hydrogen would work. It's abundant, doesn't pollute but sadly isn't that efficient yet (last time I checked anyway).
Thank you, someone who is smart and agrees with me, if only the lazy scientist get their butts up and work on it already.
It's not about lacking scientists with good ideas. It's about no one wanting to fund their research and invest in their ideas due to the lack of profit.
That, and because those who refuse to invest in green energy are acting short-sighted, in my opinion. They fail to see the ultimate benefits of harnessing energy sources that are ecologically-friendly--they help to preserve the planet that we all rely upon for survival and, as I've read, they lead to notable savings in the long run. That, and as probably wouldn't be taken into account by said groups, it's an ethical responsibility of humankind, as an intelligent species with the capacity for reason and empathy, to treat other creatures (be they human, racoon, or oak tree) with an underlying degree of respect for the right to live.
