Happy Earth Day! Looking for a way to do something simple, yet substantive, to care for the planet? Save some electricity today. The majority of our electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels (mostly coal and natural gas), which emit a number of air pollutants and carbon. By using less electricity today, you can both help keep our air clean and conserve natural resources for future generations. And who knows? Maybe you’ll find that saving electricity is so easy, you can do it every day!
For an entertaining look at some of the important ways electricity is used in our world, check out this video of how high school students see the issue.
