Non renewable energy sources are becoming harder to find and with that being said, these resources are more expensive. So what will we do when these resources are no longer here on earth for use to use? Many people are looking for and testing new forms of materials that we can use for energy. These sources are called renewable energy sources. Throughout the paper you will read about non renewable energy sources and the small supply that we have left, humans influences on theses non renewable resources and what some are trying to do to make new forms of energy. Energy Conservation Plan Energy conservation is becoming a great issue. We are using up the forms of non renewable energy sources that we have depended on for so long. Some…show more content…
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. Tom Capehart stated in November 2008 “that there are increased benefits to using biodiesel because it is made from low cost, diverse, non food feed stocks.” Who knows, maybe in the future we might be able to use this form of fuel for another type of energy. I feel that by making people more aware of the problem then more people will get involved. Another way to help with sustainability is to reduce the consumption of natural resources and materials. As with anything we can maybe end up using all of the renewable materials that can make up a new form of energy. One other way would be to maximize energy efficiency. This might be a great way to help with the energy situation, as said by Rick Parks and Kip Grubb, September 2005. As for my sustainability plan, one of the first things that would need to be addressed would be that we are in an energy crisis. I would want to maybe travel the country spreading the word of the damages that we are doing to our world and get people informed on the topic. I would want to try to get as many people involved in the support to conserve energy. To get this plan started, I would first start telling people and groups that I would be traveling to
