    • Ethanol burns cleaner that fossil fuels
    • The price of a gallon of pure ethanol is comparable to the price of a gallon of gasoline.
    • Corn farmers can make more money.

    • The plants that ethanol is made from also take carbon dioxide from the air.
  • 4. Pros (cont.)
    • Ethanol is made from corn, soybeans, and few other vegetables. These are all renewable resources.
    • Using ethanol results in less greenhouse gases, which slows down global warming.
  • 5. Cons of ethanol fuel
    • Cons:
    • The price of items that have corn in them will rise because of the demand of more ethanol.
    • Other crops will grow less because of the need form corn and other ethanol-producing plants.
    • More land will be cleared for farming.
    • If there is a drought, there will be a fuel shortage.
  • 6. Solar Cars

    • They produce no emissions
    • They are very quiet
    • They require no fuel

    • Hybrids are more fuel efficient and better for the environment.

    • Regular maintenance and repairs are just like getting a normal car fixed. They have many of the same parts as normal cars and can be serviced by any qualified mechanic.
  • 12. Cons of hybrid cars
    • Cons:
    • In reality, the mileage is 10% less that what the tag claims.
    • The cost of hybrid cars range form $19,000 to $25,000 compared to other cars.
