Do people actually believe that we are having an energy crisis, and are they therefore checking out alternative energy sources to help out? We live in an age of cool gadgets and home appliances of which most require a form of electricity to drive them. Question is, are there alternatives which can be powered by all natural options? Electricity is still the principle form of energy used to power products, although more battery-operated alternatives are becoming evident. Pollution and also global warming are being amplified by the many products that continue to make use of gasoline to run.
The negative environmental effects of conventional electricity usage is constantly increasing in line with the expansion in industry, which makes use of large quantities of energy. As the number of men and women grows, so does the use of devices that consume electricity, while factories keep spewing chemical substances which hurt nature directly into our air and rivers. The big question will be can anything be done to help, not only the economy, but also the environment? High technology continues to move forward, but not everything that is new carries a positive effect on nature, particularly if it causes energy resources to diminish faster. Men and women constantly find new innovative approaches to use old resources, but quite often they overlook any of the unwanted effects on the environment.
There can be a time coming when actually changing to alternative energy resources won't work because it will be far too late. It has been determined through environmental agency surveys that our oil reserves will be gone in some four decades if we continue to keep consuming oil at the current rate. What are we going to do when the energy resources we have ultimately run out? The transport market would grind to a halt if fuel suddenly dried up, and the businesses that rely on transportation of goods would meet the same fate. The consequences of trade and industry being affected include a slowing of economic growth as factories stop working and communications fail - success as we recognize it will no longer exist.
The worst case scenario is really dismal if nothing is done about it, and with men and women believing that natural resources will never run out, it is hard to say what will happen. We have to begin looking after our existing resources as a way to halt the slide. Alternative energy resources have to be cost-effective, and popular enough that men and women will actually use them. Until there is a clear need for immediate action individuals will basically just sit and do nothing at all.
Now, although there is still time to take action, men and women need to start taking conservation seriously. Something as simple as walking sometimes rather than driving, or joining a carpool, could save a lot of gasoline, but individuals won't do this while they are under the illusion that things are still alright.
