The Impact of Cars on the World

Cars have been a big improvement in the world. They have provided faster transportation to almost anywhere, but they also come with bad things for the Earth.

Cars are a big part of global warming and a huge cause deaths from car accidents.

Before cars, people used other methods to travel around the world. At some time people walked across the country. “Human beings learned to use animals such as donkeys, horses, and camels for transportation from 4,000 BC to 3,000 BC,” said Matt Robertson from Lelandwest.com.

After all of the walking, horse-riding, and carriages, more advanced transportation came around. “In the 17th and 18th century, many new modes of transportation were invented such as bicycles, trains, motor cars, trucks, airplanes, and trams,” according to Lelandwest.com.

It is said that the first true automobile was created in 1885, but did not become extremely popular until the early 1900s. “Between 1900 and 1920 Americans went from owning 8,000 cars to owning 8,000,000,” according to AxleAddict.com.

Automobile manufacturing companies were hiring workers to put together the cars. This created “numerous jobs in the U.S,” AxleAddict.com said. The invention of cars has given many opportunities such as auto body technician, automotive engineer, and many other jobs for people in need of one. “If cars were non-existent thousands of Americans would be out of work.”

Global warming is already a big problem for everyone on Earth, and in the future, global warming will become an even bigger problem. “Cars and trucks emit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which contribute one-fifth of the United States’ total global warming pollution. “ said Jenny Green from Sciencing.com.

“The effects of car pollution are widespread, affecting air, soil and water quality,” according to Sciencing.com.

Cars are not just affecting plants and the air, it can also affect us!

“Particulate matter, hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and other car pollutants harm human health,” said Sciencing.com.

“Every year, roughly 1.3 million people die in car accidents worldwide – an average of 3,287 deaths per day,” said Brian Beltz on Safer-america.com.  Cars have caused death rates to increase higher as they improved and became more popular.

Cars have caused many differences in societies, good and bad. Now, cars are evolving themselves. We have self-driving electric cars that don’t need gas.

Soon, maybe societies will completely be rid of cars.
