Everything that exists in the world is interconnected with nature. In the years after the World War II, countries are drastically developing year after year. There have been predictions that the world will have difficulty in satisfying the demands of the resources for the continuing population growth that is happening today. On the other hand, Middle East countries which are rich in production of oil such as Saudi Arabia, made a great impact on the part of their go- vernment to control these resources as a worldwide necessity. To provide more energy and power, the researchers and scientists found out other sources that could be the answer for unlimited resources of renewable energy. A great investment for further research and development of renewable resources are needed to a possible solution for the unending problem of scarce resources in the world.
In the present world, there are now a lot of new discoveries made by scientists and researchers for the benefit of the environment wherein they long discovered other alternatives for fossil fuels such as solar energy. Though, it could be a great solution for the demand of fossil fuels, it may still be not enough especially when there is no enough sunlight that can come from the sun during night time or rainy day season. As George Brown said in his article entitled Think ing Ahead; here we must take into account the technical fact that we cannot convert all the energy in fuel into actual usable form. In other words, the output, or amount of energy we take from the fuel and put out for use, is only a frac-tion of the input, or amount of energy we put in as fuel. Due to a long period of time for fossil fuels to be formed, oth-er renewable energy cannot be the primary new source for oil, there is more need of a research progress to be able to assess on the concrete solution for fossil fuels. We can add up to the fact that continuous population growth which may demand more use of oil can exceed the amount of resources needed to not just satisfy but to also attend to the needs of people.
Despite the ongoing concern of the rise in the demand of production of oil, rich in oil producing countries in Middle East limits their production of oil as controlled by their government. In the article World oil and cold reality André Bénard said that if oil continue to rise rapidly and steeply, they will create strong pressures within OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) to reduce oil exports, and economic growth will come to a virtual halt… Such a situa-tion would pose the great risk of pushing the already fragile economies over the threshold of tolerance into serious dis-continuity. Countries that consume a large amount of oil like China and the U.S., should learn how to properly balance their consumption of oil to attain sustainability of these oil resources. Unless, countries will take part in oil conservan-cy, there will be a larger amount of price for oil to be bought in the market which can greatly affect the economy and its people.
Energy cannot be destroyed nor created, it can only be converted in another form. There are a lot of ways and solu-tions to solve problems in the environment such as scarcity on electricity power and consumption of oil. As it was said by Gardiner Morse in his article Six sources of limitless energy? he said that we’re surrounded by inexhaustible clean-energy sources – the sun, the wind, the ocean, plants, atoms , the earth’s core – but the technology and economic rationale for tapping them have lagged behind our imaginations. Lack of more information and research in using al-ternative ways for renewable resources is the big problem in producing more power and energy. It is a good thing that there are other new machines/technologies that were made to cope with the problem of energy as of now. In spite of future developments of technologies around us, it will still be better if we can go back to the old days like rid-ing a horse for transportation and using other alternative ways instead of consuming power and energy that may have a limited solution to be solved.
People are the ones ultimately responsible towards helping save the nature. Yet, people will only respond to differ-ent climate changes and depletion of natural resources if they can feel or perceived these harmful changes first hand within themselves. In the early age, people can survive on the alternatives for a car and other machineries, and there is no need for oil that diverts most of the developed countries’ on looking for these materials. While with the lack of food, there could be no other alternative for us to eat. The diminishing amount of the natural resources in the world should make all the countries in the world to develop renewable energy that protects the depletion of the earth’s resources and also to focus more on the people’s need in providing for the lack of food and water especially to the poor. That is because we cannot live in the world no matter how much renewable energy and power we may have because there are alternatives for the kinds of oil, but none for food. Though it may be far from reaching a tar-get or goal on reducing on the consumption of oil and power coming from nature, if the government of every country can devote on assessing the needs for further research and development about the new ways in renewable energy, then we may be not far behind in making the world a better place to live in.
