Learning Ways to Deal with Energy Conservation
Learning how energy conservation really works
Over the past nine weeks, I have learned some wonderful things about science. Things like Different kinds of environmental issues, conservation vs. preservation and different resources plans for the environment. From all the reading and my own research, I decided to do my final project on energy conservation because this is something we are dealing with on a daily base and we need to know how to make things better not only for the environment but for ourselves as humans. My plan within this paper is to ...view middle of the document...
Non-living factors that contribute to global warming are affixed to our daily lives. These non-living factors include but are not limited to the sun, earth's geothermal activity, and the earth's atmosphere.”
Positive or Negative human effects of Energy Conservation
When it comes to being positive or negative dealing with energy conservation among humans can be very challenging. Some of the positive things that come into a play (According to "Energy Conservation Plan" (2013),) would be recycling. (According to "Energy Conservation Plan" (2013)), “Recycling is one of the biggest ways to help with trying to better our planet. This gives people a chance to reuse materials that otherwise would be sitting in landfills. Also there are people that are trying to use waste as a form of energy. There are also products such as bio fuel that is taken from animal oils and vegetable oils that we are now being able to use as fuel in vehicles.” I will teach them about the several different benefits and challenges that come along with energy conservation. Here are some ways to put energy efficiency to use would be to. These are some great benefits (According to “Efficient energy use” (n.d.)) “For example, insulating a home allows a building to use less heating and cooling energy to achieve and maintain a comfortable temperature. Installing fluorescent lights or natural skylights reduces the amount of energy required to attain the same level of illumination compared with using traditional incandescent light bulbs. Compact fluorescent lights use one-third the energy of incandescent lights and may last 6 to 10 times longer. Improvements in energy efficiency are most often achieved by adopting a more efficient technology or production process.” In my opinion I don’t see any negative human affect besides needing to conserve energy and resources at any cost. We need to be using the available resources more efficiently and carefully so that we can get long term benefits at no serious cost. There is no real negative impact of energy conservation all we need to do is save water, save energy and be more eco friendly. All this can start right from home by doing simple things like taking shorter showers, fix any leaky pipes or anything that water comes through.
Benefits and Challenges of My Plan
I believe that the benefits of my plan would be getting the right information out to people, who has no clue as to what energy conservation is and how it can improve things within their home and around them. Getting them aware of the problem will make things easier as time progress within the scheduled meetings. I think with me doing this, it will push people in the right direction of wanting things to change for the better with them wanting to help me make a difference in their everyday lives would be a great success story. Some of the challenges that I may face could be them throwing away any important pamphlets I might give out that would help them in the future. I...
