3 Great Reasons for Becoming Energy Efficient

There are many ways you can benifet from being energy efficient. Some people don't realize this but it's true. The top three reasons for becoming energy efficient are:
1. You spend less money being energy efficient- Who doesn't like to save money? Being energy efficient allows you to save money because you lower the amount of energy you use. For example, you would save money on gas if you buy a hybrid car.
2. It helps improve the economy- We would spend less money on fuel, and it also makes thousands of jobs for people to make buildings and other things more efficient.
3. It helps reduce the amount of pollution released- We would need to burn less fossil fuels to generate electricity at power plants and our cars would use less fuel to run. Also, I don't think you would like living in a city covered in smog.

Review of "Climate Change our Impact on the Planet"

Climate Change our Impact on the Planet, by Simon Scones, describes global warming's effects around the world. It gives facts, images, and quotes to inform the reader about it. It also states that becoming more energy efficient might help stop climate change. If you are interested in learning about climate change I would highly recommend that you check this book out.

The website is a government website that has a lot of information about how we use our energy and how it impacts us. It's very informative about how we use our energy and gives evidence such as facts and statistics to backup it's statements.It's goal is to inform people how energy is used threw out the USA.
This website defines energy efficiency as "using less energy to provide the same service." It also shares information on how people can be energy efficient and gives different examples of things that help become energy efficient. The purpose of this website is to inform people about the benefits of becoming energy efficient.
This is a website from Greentech Media, and it provides information in articles about green technology. In an article I read, it states that energy efficiency has a greater impact on the economy than energy supply. It gives information based on studies and facts proven. It's goal is to inform people about green technology.

Why Energy Efficiency?

Before viewing this blog, i would like the reader to understand the term Energy Efficiency. Energy efficiency is pretty much getting more out of sources of energy. Some people tend to mix up energy conservation and energy efficiency.
Incandescent light bulbs, for example,  are less efficient than fluorescent light bulbs. You get the same amount of light from both light bulbs yet, the florescent light bulbs use less electricity, making it more efficient. Turning off the light bulbs or using less light bulbs would be part of energy conservation, because you are using them less.
The reason why I chose energy efficiency is because I'm thinking about majoring in environmental science, in which becoming energy efficiency is one the goals. With this blog, I would like to show people how to save energy which will help them save some money and also help the environment.
