There is such a big deal about going green! How exactly can it help save the environment if we start using alternative fuel? The fact is that by using alternative fuel we can greatly reduce the impact of harmful exhaust emissions to the atmosphere. In so doing, we lessen the effects of climate change and its threat of havoc upon our planet. That is perhaps the number one benefit of using alternative fuel instead of the more commonly used petroleum fuel. Alternative fuels are manufactured domestically. Some widely-used forms are biodiesel, natural gas, ethanol, propane, hydrogen, coal, and also renewable sources such as solar and wind energy. The United States alone is responsible for 27% of harmful exhaust emissions such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur and more, all of which cause damage to the earth by means of its heat-trapping effect. Alternative fuels burn cleaner by more than 90% as compared to regular petroleum thereby lessening this heat-trapping outcome. Still, a good point to keep in mind: it is not so much what we use but how we use it. Are we taking for granted that fuel or energy will never run out and are being wasteful? When we lessen the amount of any form of fuel we use, we can prevent the burning of that remaining 10%. Now, that’s absolutely going green! You can do your share of protecting the environment by learning to use alternative fuel sources in your everyday life with the help of this book.
