Essay on Save Fuel for Better Environment

Essay on Save Fuel for Better Environment

Human beings are blessed with abundant natural resources. Fuels are an important component of such natural resources. They provide us energy for various purposes such as transportation, Industrial purposes, cooking etc. Heavy reliance on non renewable fuels will not only deplete them in few years, but are also polluting our environment. Hence, to protect our environment, we need to look for alternative fuels. Also, we should save fuel and shift towards renewable and clean energy resources such as wind energy, solar energy and biomass, etc.

Our mother earth provide us with plenty of energy resources such as coal, petroleum, natural gas etc. Most of them are non renewable in nature, that is, they cannot be renewed again once finished. Human greed have led to rampant use of such valuable resource.

We use fuels for various purposes input day-to-day life. Transportation of goods and masses require petroleum and Diesel, electricity generation require burning of coal in thermal power plant and cooking require LPG gas, etc. Industries and manufacturing require fuels for their working. Thus, for the growth and development of any country, energy is of utmost importance.

Rapid burning of fossil fuels such as coal resulted into increase in the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Global warming is leading to climate change. Climate change is resulting in various undesirable phenomena such as melting of glaciers across globe leasing to sea level rise, submergence of island nation, forest fires, drought, agricultural failure because of pest attacks and going incidences of vector borne diseases such as malaria, dengue etc.

Also, release of harmful gases during mining are polluting our environment. Air pollution in New Delhi is the foremost example. Pollution is leading to many types of lungs and heart disease, especially among children and adults. Thus, it is a global health concern. And we must seriously look into this issue.

Heavy reliance on oil is also a major problem India is facing. We are importing more than 80% of our oil requirements. It add to the expenditure on public purse.

At an individual level, we should reduce our consumption. We should use public transportations while commuting. We should switch off fan and lights when we are not using them. We should also adopt solar panels for rooftop electricity generation.

Therefore, in order to maintain the sustainability of energy resources and purity of our environment, it is important that countries should do following things. First, they should try to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels. Secondly, countries should try to adopt clean energy resources such as solar energy, wind energy, hydro electricity etc. Thirdly, public transportation should be preferably citizens instead of private vehicle. Fourthly, government should shift transportation towards electric mobility.

Thus, in order to ensure that the coming generation do not face the threat of climate change and energy insecurity we all must act now. Like we have recovered from the ozone layer depletion. We must also collaborate on climate change issue constructively. It is wisely said, “nature respects those who respect nature”.
