Carbon emissions from petrol driven cars add to global warming. We can reduce or stop these emissions from cars
completely by using other forms of energy to drive cars, e.g. solar power, steam or electric power. In the early 20th
century more steam cars were sold than petrol cars and steam cars were more efficient, cleaner and less noisy and
could accelerate faster than petrol cars.
