Electric cars will affect and benefit the future of the world. The future of driving and commuting with vehicles may benefit or harm our daily lives. I like to drive cars and I enjoy hearing the engine, by trying to make electric vehicles mandatory there will not be that thrill of hearing engines at least for fast cars. They are trying to have modified sounds to help counter this, but it is just not the same with the smell and power behind the wheel. Electric cars are much faster at accelerating but they lack a high-top speed. I also heard that just to make batteries for these electric cars is more harmful for the environment than gas- or diesel-powered vehicles. While doing my research I feel that I will find a lot of different sides and opinions on these new fancy futuristic cars. I also think I will find information on gas prices and paying for fuel having a more economic cost, but I personally believe that it will be much more negative for electric cars because to charge your car it can take hours depending on how good chargers are and how many people are using them. Gas takes approximately two minutes to fully fill up a car and keeps the line moving smoothly. Imagine having to wait hours just to charge your car and while it is charging what are you supposed to do in the meantime it will waste so much time. Another reason is they promote the idea to charge your vehicle over night at home in your garage but not everyone has a garage most people just park on the street. Is everyone supposed to just have extension cords lying all around the streets and sidewalks. What will people do with all their gas-powered vehicles there will be so many cars that still work that people will be forced to switch into electric it will take so many years just to get rid of these cars. If I find information that what I am expected to find, I will just have to see if I agree and write about what everyone is talking about pros and cons. I will not throw all my research away I will just take it as a lesson and new information that I retained. I will write about everything both what the research says and what I personally believe is right. I will challenge myself because it makes it more interesting, and I get to learn more about this topic as well as help others on understanding the positives and negatives of electric powered vehicles versus gas powered.

Proposal

I want to make sure my audience is aware about the hazards of electric cars and the benefits they provide for the environment. I also want people to know that this is still in the making and a new idea that is going to be a big impact for our future. The audience I am trying to teach is anyone with a driver’s license and that knows something about electric cars. I am planning to write in non-fiction because there is a lot of information regarding modern day cars and vehicles. I plan to get started by having good points and information to support any questions a reader may have or may want to know. I would be worried about the people that are not interested into cars and do not care to learn more about them and how they can better or worse our planet. My concerns would be not completing it correctly along with the correct format and layout. overall, I want to make sure I am doing the assignment correctly so I can get a good grade. Also making sure I can keep it entertaining to the reader and make them want to know more and be curious and ask questions.

“Annoying Ways People Use Sources”

November 9, 2022

  1. Everyone has pet peeves that people don’t like some it might be slow drivers in the fast lane or chewing your food with your mouth open or popping your fingers. People do annoying things all the time that just drive us insane. He talks about the frustrations readers may have with certain writings like fast drivers have with slow cars in front of them non letting them pass. He says that in both situations the slow driver/ sloppy writer either doesn’t know the right way to set the stage and write/ drive properly or they know and just don’t care. Writers should work on always having signals to tell their readers about their intentions just as drivers use turn signals to tell other drivers of their intentions.
  2. People a lot of the time when it comes to writing forget about a lot of the rules because there is so many kinds of writing, but a lot of the time people don’t know the rules or just don’t care and write sloppy. Writing and driving is similar how there are lots of rules and sometimes you forget them or had taught them because there are different teachers for everyone. In the essay, Annoying Ways People Use Sources, Stedman related how annoying things that people do in writing relates to different things like driving behind a slow driver in the fast lane. No one really likes a slow driver in a fast lane and sometimes people lose their temper and start yelling and waving their arms but there are at least two explanations for why some slow drivers fail to move out of the way. One is they don’t know that you are supposed to move to the right if a car wants to pass. Or the second reason is they know the rules but don’t care about annoying people or what others think

Conclusion

In conclusion, I have found the pros and cons of these electrically charged vehicles. I believe that electric cars are affecting us financially and economically. They are not practical and beneficial for this current economy. They do have their pros, but cons outweigh it so much that it just does not make sense to own one as well as continuing to influence the pubic to purchase these vehicles. Batteries on these cars must be changed every couple of years because eventually they will die just like car batteries do. This makes these cars not a good choice to buy long term however leasing them will be a better choice. However, after these cars’ batteries go bad just to replace them isn’t worth it so what will they do with these cars. They will most likely create more waste and the lithium iron batteries will cause more health problems. If regular cars go bad, you can switch the engine it is expensive but not nearly as much as an electric car. Electric cars also must take a lot of time to charge and not everyone has a garage to charge them in.

Ford has stopped taking orders for Lightning electric pickups, with a theoretical starting price of about $40,000, because it can’t make them fast enough.

“Policymakers in Washington are promoting electric vehicles as a solution to climate change. But an uncomfortable truth remains: Battery-powered cars are much too expensive for a vast majority of Americans.”

“High prices are caused by shortages of batteries, of raw materials like lithium and of components like semiconductors. Strong demand for electric vehicles from affluent buyers means that carmakers have little incentive to sell cheaper models. For low- and middle-income people who don’t have their own garages or driveways, another obstacle is the lack of enough public facilities to recharge.”

20+ Facts and Stats About Electric Cars in 2022

#1 The first electric car was built in 1884 and The first US electric car was unveiled in 1890.

“The first-ever electric car was designed in 1884 by the English inventor Thomas Parker, responsible for many other innovations across the UK. The American inventor, William Morrison, designed an electric car that was unveiled in 1890 and could move at 14mph and carry six people. But even though the first electric cars were used quite often, the invention of the gasoline engine and cheap gas prices threw electric cars out of use.”

#2 Electric cars don’t need oil changes or other maintenance

“Cars that run solely on electricity don’t require oil changes, transmission and brake fluid replacement, or coolants. As a result, these cars are easier to maintain, and upkeep costs are significantly lower.”

#3 Tesla is the most popular manufacturer of electric vehicles

“Many car manufacturers began producing electric vehicles, but currently, Tesla is the most popular electric car maker, especially their Model 3 and Model X. Other popular electric car manufacturers include Toyota, Chevrolet, and Nissan.”

#4 Hybrid cars produce 90% fewer pollutants than non-hybrid cars

“Facts about electric cars and the environment have revealed that a hybrid car produces 90% fewer pollutants than a non-hybrid one. Therefore, the environmental impact of electric cars (and hybrids) is quite significant. In addition, a hybrid vehicle can save you 15 to 20% on fuel costs.”

Navigating Genres

October 21, 2022

Some genres that I know well are romance, fiction, fantasy, drama, horror, humor, mystery, poetry, realistic fiction. I learned these genres throughout my time in years of schools. My teachers have taught lessons about these genres and topics. A rhetorical genre can be a useful phrase to describe a category of rhetoric or a methodology for analyzing a piece of rhetoric. It means that it is a recognizable pattern for providing specific kinds of information for an identifiable audience demanded by different types of circumstances that come up again and again. I think the journalism genre will be the most helpful for my research paper because it uses various journalism styles, fields, or separate genres, in writing accounts and events. Newspapers, Articles, and periodicals often contain features written by journalists. Many people specialize in this type of genre in depth of journalistic writing. Research articles requires a person to spend time investigating and evaluating sources with the intent to offer interpretations of the texts, and not unconscious regurgitations of those sources. Genres always make use of the various literary forms as foundations from which to stretch out in many directions of expression. Forms and genres join with content to create the meaning of a piece of writing. Meaning is the writer’s message to the reader. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and all-electric vehicles, also referred to as battery electric vehicles (BEVs), are both capable of being powered solely by electricity, which is produced in the United States from natural gas, coal, nuclear energy, wind energy, hydropower, and solar energy. In full electric mode, an electric car produces zero tailpipe emissions, dramatically lowering smog and greenhouse gas emissions even when considering electricity generation. Cleaner cars mean cleaner air and better health. Electric vehicles use electricity to charge their batteries instead of using fossil fuels like petrol or diesel. Electric vehicles are more efficient, and that combined with the electricity cost means that charging an electric vehicle is cheaper than filling petrol or diesel for your travel requirements. nonfiction genre is about the issues surrounding events that are relevant to the present and the people that live in the present and the future. Nonfiction genre would be the best to talk about the issues of surrounding current events that is relevant to the present and the people that live in the present and the future.

REVISED Research Essay

October 19, 2022

How will electric cars affect and benefit the future of the world? I’m interested in this question because I would like to know more about how the future of driving and commuting with electric vehicles may benefit or harm our daily lives. I like to drive cars and I enjoy hearing the sounds of the engine; by trying to make electric vehicles mandatory there will not be that thrill of hearing engines at least for fast cars. They are trying to have modified sounds to help counter this, but it is just not the same with the smell and power behind the wheel.

Electric cars are much faster at accelerating, but they lack a high-top speed. While doing my research I feel that I will find a lot of different sides and opinions on these new fancy futuristic cars. I also think I will find information on gas prices and paying for fuel having a more economic cost, but I personally believe that it will be much more negative for electric cars because to charge your car it can take hours depending on how strong the chargers are, how many people are using them, as well as the location and logistically getting to a charger before the battery dies out.

Gas takes approximately two minutes to fully fill up a car and keeps the line moving smoothly. Imagine having to wait hours just to charge your car and while it is charging what are you supposed to do in the meantime? It will waste so much valuable time. Another reason is they promote the idea to charge your vehicle over night at home in your garage, but not everyone has a garage. Most people just park on the street. Is everyone supposed to just have extension cords lying all around the streets and sidewalks? What will people do with all their gas-powered vehicles as they are trying to make it mandatory? There will be so many cars that still work that people will be forced to switch into electric, and it will take so many years just to get rid of these cars.

I also heard that just to make batteries for these electric cars is more harmful for the environment than gas- or diesel-powered vehicles. If fact, lithium-ion batteries burn hotter and faster so a fire can occur. Due to this, it requires far more water and time to reach final extinguishment. The batteries can also reignite hours or even days after the fire is controlled leaving salvage yards, repair shops, houses, and people at risk. We are seeing this happening with waterlogged vehicles that were damaged in Florida from Hurricane Ian. They can be a ticking time bomb that can ignite whenever.

In conclusion, I will research and debate the pros and cons of these vehicles. I will not throw all my research away I will just take it as a lesson and new information that I retained. I will write about everything both what the research says and what I personally believe is right. I will challenge myself because it makes it more interesting, and I get to learn more about this topic as well as help others on understanding the positives and negatives of electric powered vehicles versus gas powered.
