I am very experienced in creative writing. Being creative when I write is soothing. It is therapy. I write about anything I put my mind to.
Why buy an electric vehicle? The answer is pretty simple. Climate change is an urgent problem. There are many solutions available to us now. Transportation is one of them. We could make the biggest change in transportation. The transportation sector is responsible for more than a quarter of all heat-trapping emissions in the US.
Your car is responsible for most of those emissions. In some parts of the country you can get by without a car but that’s not true for us in the U.S. Replacing our gas-burning cars with electric vehicles is a great solution. The world is changing drastically. The high gas prices are taking a toll on cars.
Not only on cars but on all things that require gasoline to run. Whoever came up with the idea of "electric vehicles' knew this time will come. They are executing it very well. There are electric pumps even in apartment complexes. I live in South Florida and notice more and more each day. Due to their aerodynamics, they may be pricey. These 10 are affordable.
