    Electric appliances are better for the envrionment if they are run from renewable energy sources. Gas appliances contribute to global warming. In fact, many outboard motors have proportionally more emissions that automobiles. However, electric appliances are only marginally better for the envrionment if they are not run on renewable energy. This is because electric appliances usually require lots of lead sodering for their wiring. This can pollute the groundwater if not properly disposed of. Giving old applicances to electronics recycling centers is a good way to avoid this.
