IS TRAINS AND SHIPS A MORE EFFICIENT MEANS OF TRANSPORT?
The answer to this question is a yes. Trains and ships do or is an
efficient means of transport. It is known that public transport
especially taxis; cars can cause a loss of energy. Thus energy
efficiency is the percentage of total energy input that does useful work
in an energy conversion system. Cars and taxis thus has an increase in
production of electricity from fossil fuels thereby having a loss of
energy at each production step. It is however, estimated that most oil
is from motoring and driving.
By making less use of this way of transport may also help us save on
oil which we don't have sufficient of.
