Although the scare of Global Warming has calmed down in the past decade, reducing your carbon footprint is still as important now as ever. With smart phones, tablets and bigger and better games consoles paving the way for a new, technology heavy generation, it is important to think about where all our energy comes from and whether or not we can find an alternate way to generate that energy.
As a result of the technological age, we no longer print everything out in order to read it, we use far less paper and most things are accessible online. However there is an electrical cost for running this equipment and primarily we use coal or oil to fuel the technology we easily take for granted. Fossil fuels are a limited energy source and they will eventually run out, so it is important to start switching over to renewable forms of energy.

As Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2Â tells us, the only true source of energy is the conversion of matter. The two natural processes that create energy are nuclear fission and nuclear fusion. Nature has provided us with one primary source for each: in the Earth’s core for nuclear fission and in the Sun’s core for nuclear fusion. The energy from these primary natural energy sources is captured in a number of secondary ways to provide humans with energy.

Energy Efficiency at Home
Energy efficiency in the home usually focuses on appliances purchases. While this is an important part of conserving power, there are a number of other considerations to make such as the type of heating system used, windows and doors installed, and the way all of these items are used once they are in the home.
When choosing heating systems, a natural gas system is a better option for maintaining energy efficiency than electricity or wood. Natural gas also provides a more environmentally friendly option than wood or coal-produced electricity.
