Don’t Ignore The Need For Energy Conservation
Unless you don’t have a television, the internet or access to a newspaper, then it is likely that you have heard a lot about the need for energy conservation in the past months and years. I have heard so much about the energy crisis in our land and I am convinced that every citizen of the West cannot ignore the fact that there is a need for energy conservation on the individual level and on the corporate and national level.
One of the first things you can do to better understand your role in energy conservation on a personal level is to become informed. I am convinced that you cannot effectively be part of the solution to a problem unless you know the truth about the problem. So inform yourself. Get to a local library or bookstore and see what materials you can read. Talk with friends who are informed on the needs for energy conservation and see what the people in your area are doing to help the situation. Learn the truth of the most prominent problems then look for ways to involve yourself.
One of the biggest myths that people deal with regarding the energy conservation crisis is that the problem is so big that individual people, families or even cities cannot do much to help solve the problems. And while it is true that there is an abundance of problems facing the world, it is never a better solution to sit out of problems simply because they seem hard to fix. The best way to combat that lie is to become proactive in a couple of small ways. Think about how you can do small things to help solve the need for energy conservation.
If everyone in the West would take small steps then we would go a long way in seeing the problems solved as we each commit to energy conservation methods. So rally your friends and neighbors and see what all of you can do together. Get kids involved from a young age and teach them to be passionate about contributing to the health of our society in positive ways. Explain to them the important role that each person and each family has in energy conservation.
If you are lacking motivation for this, just think about your children and the kind of life that you want them to lead. All of the time and energy you put into energy conservation will be worth it for the sake of your children.
