The reason that I think conserving energy is important is because we all use energy for different things every single day. We use it for entertainment, cooking, transportation, lighting, heating and cooling homes, manufacturing, etc. We all use a large amount of energy every day. When energy is made from nonrenewable fuels to heat our homes, and power our cars, for example pollutants are released into the air, which then contaminates the air that we breathe and the water that we drink. The more energy that we use or the more that we use our vehicles, the more energy the power plants must produce. The more gasoline that our vehicles burn the more pollutants that are released into the air. So conserving energy is very important because we will help the environment to provide a better living environment for our children. There are two types of energy resources, and they are renewable and nonrenewable resource energy. The renewable energy sources are the self-sustaining sources and are produced by natural resources, like the sun, wind, water, and geothermal energy have been around since the beginning of time and are renewable energy sources. Nonrenewable energy sources which once used up cannot be replaced. The energy that is produced by oil, coal, and natural gas are all nonrenewable energy sources and once they are used they cannot be reused, but with renewable energy sources that can self-sustain with the natural, and then with the nonrenewable energy sources that can also sustain with the natural resources, but then cannot be replaced. The energy that is produced by oil, coal, and natural gas are all nonrenewable energy sources and once they are used they cannot be reused, but with renewable energy sources that can self-sustain with natural resources, and with the nonrenewable energy sources has to sustain the natural resources, but then cannot be replaced. What are the ways or methods that we can use to conserve and help the environment What can the average person do What can we change What are the habits that we must change There is a huge energy problem in the world, and there are a lot of changes big and small that can be done. The pollution and energy problems are taking over our world. We can conserve energy and help the environment at the same time. By doing and following three simple methods that I will tell you about, so that everyone can make a difference. What you can do to help conserve energy is turn off appliances that are not being used, and do not need electricity at that time. You can also help the environment by learning to use alternate renewable sources of energy. For example we can use solar powered gardening lights, which will save energy. Recycling is going to be one of the best ways to conserve energy. By recycling products that will help with the use of sources that cannot be replaced which will also use up energy. By recycling we will also help the environment and will also help conserve energy. The government has been involved in the conservation of energy for quite some time and has implemented regulations to help reduce the unnecessary use of energy. The government has been directly involved in the reduction of fuels to conserve energy. Back in 2005, President Bush asked that all 2008 model cars, that there be a seven percent improvement in fuel mileage to 22.2 miles per gallon (Visualizing environmental science, 2007). The government wants all vehicle makers to make vehicles that are more fuel efficient which will conserve energy and at the same time it will also help the environment. The government is also going to try and help the taxpayers by providing tax credits to the people who buy energy efficient cars. The federal government has also implemented the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and what this Tax Act does is it provides tax credits for people or businesses that either buy or lease the energy efficient cars, and most especially the Hybrid cars. Also the government can help by establishing new laws which will help reduce the unnecessary use of energy. I feel like maybe if the government would make periodic inspections to the industries and companies to check and make sure that they are conserving energy. I believe that the involvement of the government is crucial to the conservation of energy and also of the environment. So in conclusion I would like to remind you of the importance of conserving energy. Also it is very important to remember and implement the ways of conserving energy like I mentioned to recycle, try to use the renewable sources of energy, and the very simple act of turning off appliances that are not being used. CONSERVATION: IT SAVES, IT ISN??™T COSTLY
