We all need to do our part to help conserve energy in order to be able to have these nonrenewable sources for future generations. We as a whole need to look more thoroughly at incorporating renewable energy resources into our daily lives considering these resources can be replenished. Everything we do will as far as changes and efforts, regardless of how small, make a difference for living and nonliving thing on the earth.

The educating of what is happening, what is causing the problem, and what can be done to help are the beginnings of change that will influence everyone today and in the future.
