Tesla Cars not so Green?
Tesla is a car manufacturing company that provides electric cars for the market. Their cars are some of the best quality electric cars available today. The infamous company claims that their cars reduce greenhouse emissions that are traditionally released from cars. Well, in short they do. Most if not all of Tesla vehicles run solely on the power of electricity. A battery is charged and powers the engine. In turn, the cars do not require gasoline to run. This fixes the problem, right? Wrong. Well, the second leading cause of green house gasses is cars, so Tesla is on the right track to helping the environment. However, the number one leading cause of these emissions is the burning of coal to produce electricity. This may be an issue. While the cars are fixing the direct problem at hand, they are simply adding to another problem. Before you doubt the company and the idea of electric cars, there may be a way around it. In the previous months, Tesla announced a possible solar panel that would be mounted on top of one of their vehicles. What this panel would do is use the power from the sun to recharge the battery. If this worked, the cars would be essentially running on the solar power derived from the sun. This would definitely solve the problem of greenhouse emissions altogether. However, we may not be there yet. Tesla eventually shot the idea down due to problems. Maybe someday electric cars will save us.
