Energy Conservation

Conserving energy is very important because there is a limited amount of nonrenewable energy sources available on earth such as coal, oil, and gas. If people do not conserve the nonrenewable resources we have now, there might not be any left for future generations. In addition, energy conservation is important because when nonrenewable energy sources are consumed this impacts the environment. The combustion of oil, gas, and coal in power stations produces carbon dioxide and contributes to global...
