We all know that CO2 is bad for the planet, so we are prone to greener solutions. One of the easiest ways to reduce carbon emissions is to consume less power. Or, we can even change fuel or electricity-driven devices for the ones that run on human power.
Japan is a great example of reducing CO2 emissions by choosing bikes over cars. The other option would be electric cars, although even electrically-driven vehicles are, contrary to public belief, not carbon emissions free.
Why is that so? Carbon emissions are calculated specifically. Included are all the phases, from the beginning of the process to the end, not just the productions stage. Where does creation of an electric car physically starts? It begins with raw materials.
