20 THINGS YOU CAN DO
TO CONSERVE ENERGY
Whenever you save energy, you not only save money, you also reduce the demand for such fossil fuels as coal, oil, and natural gas. Less burning of fossil fuels also means lower emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the primary contributor to global warming, and...
how to conserve energy and how renewable energy helps the country with the energy it uses. We will also be discussing the two types of energy renewable and nonrenewable energy.
