Manure an Unlikely Solution
It has been known for many years now that environment has been in danger. From the loss of fossil fuels to global warming, America along with other countries across the world have been looking at ways of conserving, recycling, and all other ways of going green. When our fossil fuels are gone there is obviously no way of replacing the source. Finding other ways of producing energy needs to be a main priority to us all. Although not everyone is on board with the same ideas.
Forbes has notched it down to the top 10 energy saving countries. Japan is the 10th least energy saving country in the world when it comes to conserving energy, it doesn’t have anywhere near the energy it needs, the country has had to conserve energy to keep down fuel cost and prevent carbon monoxide pollution. Coming in at number 9 is Denmark. It has had poor government efforts to reduce relying on foreign countries for fossil fuels ever since 1973. The eighth country is Switzerland. While they are poor at conserving energy they were the “greenest” country in the world in 2008, by recycling.
Hong Kong comes in at 7, with is over crowding population, it seems as if energy saving for them is unheard of. Although the advantage of this is the sparse area of building large industries, which is less pollution. Ireland ranks 6th, the United Kingdom 5th, Israel, 4th, Italy 3rd, and Germany 2nd. So this brings us to Austria, yes the number one and most energy efficient country in the world. Austria, has a greater advantage because nearly half of the Austria’s electricity is hydroelectricity.
As you can see America is not ranked in these numbers. Americans have been working hard at conserving energy also, but is also comes in as being the 2nd largest energy consumer in the world. Most of Americans use their energy for transportation, homes, industrial use, and commercial use.
Americans really don’t seem to take global warming seriously because the effects of it are...
