Energy consumption is an essential element in development and while the increase in energy use has many benefits, we are becoming also aware of the negative impacts of energy use. These negative impacts are both global and local in the form of climate change or environmental degradation ( for example poor air quality, desertification, resource depletion, and noise pollution) etc. As a matter of urgency, we need to cultivate an alternative and efficient use of energy at all stages of supply and demand chain in order to reduce the negative impacts of energy consumption and at the same time accommodate same and flourishing economic development. Generally, the 21st century has been so far overshadowed by changes in the way we understand and use energy compared to the

What do you do when you run out of gas in your car? Will you stop using your car? or Will you go to the gas station and refill your tank? Natural gas that has been pumped up from fracking nearly fuels 40% of the U.S. energy consumption.

Scientists have already figured out lung cancer is caused by smoking, yet people continue to smoke.

An example of air pollution that has become more prominent in the last few years has been acid rain. Acid rain had increased the marginal social cost on the American people through its risks of a persons health, however, most people only realize the marginal social benefits that it represents, like the goods that are made, with the rain as their product. Title IV of the Clean Air Act is where we find the laws that regulate Acid Deposition, which occurs when sulfur and nitrogen emissions combined with other substances, are changed in the atmosphere and then dropped back on Earth in a form that is very harmful to a persons and the environments health. The Clean Water Act was put into place in order to create a system so that there aren 't too many pollutants released into the U.S. 's water supply and to make sure that the water is deemed as safe for Americans to use and drink from. The Clean Water Act was first introduced in 1948 as the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, but in 1972 it was restructured and expanded.
