How can we conserve energy?

How can we conserve energy?
When you enter a room and turn on the light,
To help you see in the dark of night,
Do you ever stop to think and ponder,
What will happen if we continue to squander?

Not all our energy is the renewable kind,
So ways to save it, you must keep in mind,
For if we don’t, one day there will be,
No energy left for you or for me!

What can we do? What must we change?
What habits should we rearrange?
There’s lots to be done, changes big and small,
And most take almost no effort at all!

Why Is It Important To Conserve EnergyAll of us use energy every day – for entertainment, cooking, transportation, lighting, heating and cooling homes, manufacturing, etc. We consume a lot of energy. The United States consumes about one fourth of the world’s energy resources.
When energy is produced from non-renewable fuels, to heat our homes or power our cars for example, pollutants are released into the air contaminating the air we breathe and water too. The more energy we use or miles we drive in our cars, the more energy power plants must produce or gasoline our cars burn, releasing more pollutants into the air.

What Is Non-Renewable Energy

Non-renewable energy comes from sources that can’t be replenished in a short period of time. We get most of our energy from nonrenewable energy sources, which include fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas, coal and from nuclear energy.  Fossil fuels are thought to have been formed from the buried remains of plants and animals that lived millions of years ago.

Did you know that between 20 to 25 percent of the electricity generated in Pennsylvania comes from our five nuclear power plants?

Why Do we Need Energy?
Energy is very important in today’s world. For example, we use different energy sources to generate the electricity we need for our homes, schools, businesses and factories. Electricity “powers” our TVs, computers, air conditioners, cell phones and washing machines – just to mention a few.  We also use energy to run cars, planes, trains, buses and motorcycles.

What is Energy?

Energy is the ability to do work. Oil, coal, natural gas, wind, water – just What Is Energy?to name a few – provide us the energy we need in our daily lives. For example, we use oil to produce gasoline for our cars. We use natural gas, coal, solar and wind power to generate electricity that makes the computer you are using work!
There are two forms of energy: renewable energy and non-renewable energy.

How can I tell if I have too much of radon in my home?

How can I tell if I have too much radon in my home?
Illustration of a Radon testing kitRadon is tricky. You can’t see it, and you can’t smell it. So, the only way to know how much radon you have in your home is to get a test kit and do a test.
You can buy test kits at a lot of different stores — hardware, lawn and garden, outdoor supply, and department stores. They cost about $25 and take just a few days to do. Then you send your test kit in to a laboratory, and they tell you how much radon you have in your home.
