Overview

We have come along way in developing societies that have electricity and the
power necessary to fuel vehicles and for industry to be successful. All of these
efforts though rely upon the use of energy source that comes from fossil fuels.
They are found in the ground and have to be processed in order for us to have
that fuel and that electricity. They are known as coal, natural gas, and fuel. We
rely on them way too much for our own good and that is why change is so
important.
The problem though is that our dependence on it continues to grow. As more
people are upon the Earth than ever before we are using more every single day.
People are living longer too due to advances in health care. We are certainly a
society dependent upon our electronic gadgets as well.
While those are all good things for us to be happy about, the fact that we are
depleting the fossil fuel available isn�t. This type of energy source isn�t one that
we will be able to replace. When it is gone it is gone and that is the reality of the
situation.
It won�t all disappear during our lifetimes, but it is going to pose a problem for
future generations. While efforts can be made to converse fossil fuels, eliminating
enough of the use in order to really make a difference isn�t going to occur unless
we take a close look at some alternative methods.
Society isn�t going to go back to using horses and carriages for transportation.
They also aren�t going to go back to lighting their homes with candles at night.
With the computer use around us in homes and for business it isn�t even practical to suggest we stop using the electricity that is necessary to allow them to operate.
We can often take for granted just turning the key and our car starts, turning on the thermostat to have heating or cooling in our home, and flipping a switch to give us the lighting we need in any room. Some people are also selfish as they don�t care what is going to happen for future generations as long as they have what they need right now.
Luckily, the majority of the population doesn�t think that way. They aren�t out to use everything they can without looking back. The problem though is that they often don�t realize what they are using could be a problem down the road. Even if they do, they may not realize that they have some other options they can try to implement.
Learning about the various types of renewable energy is a great way to get a person thinking about changes they can implement. There have been some significant efforts made in this area but there is still much more than needs to be taking place. Instead of being afraid of what is unknown to you, do your best to learn the basics of all the renewable energy sources possible.
