Given the delicate balance between energy consumption through non-renewable resources and environmental health, the need for mitigation efforts toward conserving energy resources at all given opportunities becomes imperative. Any degradation of the environment is ultimately going to affect human health. What is needed at this juncture is innovative action plans that help set in motion a culture of energy conservation. This is not just applicable to heavy industries but also to residential energy consumers. What is required is a cooperative and sustained effort on part of common people, government as well as the manufacturing corporations in order to make planet earth a better place to live in for future generations of people.
