How can we reduce fossil fuels at home?
Alternative, renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, eliminate the pollution that accompanies fossil fuel energy. Alternative energy also reduces the reliance on limited fossil fuels. Consider installing solar panels in your home to reduce the amount of fossil fuel needed to power your home.
How can we stop pollution?
On Days when High Particle Levels are Expected, Take these Extra Steps to Reduce Pollution:
- Reduce the number of trips you take in your car.
- Reduce or eliminate fireplace and wood stove use.
- Avoid burning leaves, trash, and other materials.
- Avoid using gas-powered lawn and garden equipment.
What happens if we stop burning fossil fuels?
Even if we stopped burning fossil fuels, the Earth would continue warming up for another few decades because of all the heat we’ve already produced. Global temperatures would climb – finally stabilizing at a level much higher than we’ve ever known.
Why use of fossil fuels should be reduced?
Burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gas results in carbon pollution, which causes climate change. So if we want to stop climate change (and avoid devastating extreme weather, sea level rise wiping out communities, global conflict and instability, etc.), we have to stop burning fossil fuels.
How can we replace fossil fuels?
1. Renewables replace fossil fuel energy on the grid. In the U.S. and in virtually every region, when electricity supplied by wind or solar energy is available, it displaces energy produced by natural gas or coal-fired generators.
How can we reduce the use of coal?
The steps which can be taken to reduce the consumption of coal and petroleum products are: (i) Switch of the lights, fans, television and other electrical appliances to save electricity. (ii) Use energy efficient electrical appliances to save electricity. This can be done by using CFL and Fluorescent tube lights.
How can we save fuel?
- Stay aerodynamic. Wind resistance increases fuel consumption.
- Slow down. According to the AA, dropping from 80mph to 70mph could save you up to 25% in fuel.
- Sensible driving.
- Drop the revs.
- Look after tyres.
- Reduce weight.
- Speed bumps.
