What energy resources do you currently rely on in your everyday life?
On the daily basis I use numerous energy resources from residential, commercial, transportation to industrial. First, I use residential and commercial the most. At home I have gas heating, stove and fireplace; gas pretty much runs my house. Right now in the winter month’s gas heating is the greatest energy usages in my resident. Then on top of that we have space heaters. The heaters are intended to cut back on the gas usage but I’m not seeing much of a difference. Usage of electricity is also a huge abundance in my residents. A normal routine of using electricity varies from everything like lights…show more content… Pollution can cause changes in the planet’s energy balance, such as changes in the greenhouse effect, which affects the amount of heat retained by Earth’s atmosphere, variations in the sun’s energy reaching Earth changes in the reflectivity of Earth’s atmosphere and surface. The changes have changed the climate many times which have an effect on humans also. (NRC EPA. 2010) Our planet can is good at reusing waste but humans are producing more than what the Earth can handle. Pollution happened at different stages and it has an impact on all living things including species and humans. Unfortunately, humans are the most polluting species.
If you were to seek a new energy resource for your home, what would you choose?
If I had to choose new energy resources for my home I would choose solar panels. The main reason that most individuals convert their power source to solar energy is to cut down their electrical bill because the electrical usage generated from the sun is free. I love the sound of free. Solar panels are energy that is taken from renewable energy sources such as wind, sun, geothermal, and biomass. Installing solar panels is simple way for home to decrease its carbon and environmental impact. Also as stated previously that world pollution is getting worse and solar panels helps. Any effort that can reduce the pollution to the environment helps to save the earth. Therefore, solar energy that is harmless to the environment will be the major energy
