MITIGATION STRATEGIES AND SOLUTIONS Mitigation Strategies and Solution Energy conservation is an important issue and a necessity for what humans use on an everyday basic. Non-renewable energy is the problem of energy conservation also a concern to the environment. In the world today “85 percent of energy is produced non- renewable energy source” (Shepard, 2005). The source of non-renewable energy will stay the same for 20 more years from now, unless something is changed to reduce the percent of usage. “Non-renewable fuels are also known as fossil fuel because they are the fossilized remains of plants and animals which died up to 300 million years ago and became buried beneath the surface of the earth and the ocean floors” (Shepard, 2005). As much as the usage for fuel at some point we will run out of energy source. There are too many problems using fossil fuel because they are finite, it will run out and the burning of fossil fuel to produce energy creates a large amount of gas pollution. The pollution can lead to health issues to us, animals, and the plants. Coal, oil, and gas are fossil fuel, which releases carbon dioxide when burned and causes global warming. We depend on non-renewable source for many years and have been taken advantage of it. Many people think that non-renewable source will not run out and be here for eternity but it has becoming a problem to find non-renewable sources. It may not happen in five or ten years from now but soon or later we will run out of non-renewable energy. Humans have a great impact on our environment it is not because of the fuel pollution in the atmosphere, it is how humans are using the fuel which is causing the problem. As the population of human’s increases, the more of energy is used.

MITIGATION STRATEGIES AND SOLUTIONS Non-living factors that contribute to or are affected by energy conservation are precipitation, soil, water, temperature, and sunlight. Water and soil are contribute to sunlight and temperature which are contributions to energy consumption by using other renewable resource for energy or light, that need fuel that produces energy, instead of using non-renewable resource that cannot be reused. Living factors that contribute to or are affected by energy conservation are animals that are called herbivores that eat only plants, carnivores that eat other animals and omnivores that eat both plants and animals. It affects energy consumption because it like a web of life, plants is contributed to energy. If plants decreased production herbivores will get sick or die and carnivores and omnivores are both affected because they eating sick animals and become unhealthy or die because of the lack of energy producing. “High efficiency of energy utilization contributes not only to energy
