DISCUSSION: As society continues to move deeper into the 21st Century, there is no doubt that people all over the world are continuing to become more and more aware of the fact that consequences of a gradually warming planet Earth as well as other climate change issues. This is chiefly a result of the fact that the effects of a gradually warming planet are beginning to become realized in many places. That is, more specifically in terms of a reduction in annually-averaged Arctic sea ice coverage, gradually increasing global sea level rise, etc. Thus, society is now much more often looking for ways and/or lifestyle methods to help curb the magnitude by which man-kind influences its net impact on Earth's natural systems (i.e., the lithosphere, the biosphere, the atmosphere, and more).
One of the more popular ways in which many people strive to curb their carbon footprint and minimize their contribution is by purchasing automobiles which are of either a electric or hybrid-based design. Thereby, allowing a given individual to utilize automotive vehicles which have a much smaller net impact on global fossil fuel emissions. There is also an inherent advantage to own an electric and/or hybrid vehicle in the modern era based on the fact that prices for vehicles are gradually decreasing as the market demand for them is coincidentally increasing with time. This increased market demand has even more so increased over the past 5 to 10 years as more and more scientists across various parts of the geo-science world have come out with more and more profound statistically-proven facts about the detrimental impacts of both coal and fossil fuel consumption.
The following website attached within the following link includes a database for all of the current electric and hybrid automotive vehicles which are currently being sold at various locations across the span of the contiguous United States. Thus, it is a great resource for all people who are currently looking for a newer and more ecologically-friendly vehicle. Note that you can search by state which makes its that much more user-friendly to find the cars which are being sold across the 50 U.S. states.
