The transportation sector (cars, trucks, motorcycles, airplanes and boats) plus gas/oil powered machines are responsible for tons, upon tons of green house gas emissions on an annual basis, and have been for decades and decades. Ever improving, robust battery technology is now able to power this sector quite efficiently. Most of the world’s auto manufacturers are developing cars and trucks that have ever increasing “range” that allow them to go further and further on a single battery charge. Plus, the public charging network is continuing to develop to make finding a place to charge, when away from home much easier.
Fossil fuels have been incredibly instrumental in the development of the world's societies, economies, and “getting things done.”
The stuff we need to get done can now “get done” using sustainable, renewable sources of energy (solar, geo-thermal, wind, batteries, electrifying) in a never increasing, more efficient way with tons, upon tons less environmental pollution (human, plant, animal, crop, noise, air, ground, water)and vibration.
