Transcript of Energy

Issue:
Energy consumption and conservation may impact the environment, economy, and resources positively or negatively.
How effectively people and nations across the globe are dealing with energy consumption and conservation.
Energy Consumption and Conservation
How Much Energy Do Our Family and Friends Consume in a Month?
What Do Our Family And Friends Do To Conserve Energy?
"In the Summer, we try to hang clothes outside instead of using a dryer."
"We close the lights when we aren't using them."
"Unplug the wires of devices we aren't using."
"We try to all go to the living room in the evening so we can all use only one house light."
If the Rate of Energy Consumption Continues Without Change, What Impact Do You Think It Will Have On the Future?
Conclusion
Claims did not match actions.
There is no reason to be overly concerned apparently, regardless of what happens to the environment.
People aren't paying attention to the big picture.
Reliance on far-fetched ideas without contribution.
Some people can see the issues with energy consumption and conservation, and are working to find solutions.
Nations are not giving the environment enough consideration.
Recommendations
People need to become aware of the impacts their energy consumption could have on the planet
Greater global effort
Equilibrium
Discovering alternatives
How Much Power Do Different Nations Consume and Produce?
Trends and Findings
“I think we will significantly damage the environment.”
“I think that in the near future no big change will occur but there will definitely will be long term
damages.”
"The prices for electricity will go up and if we continue at our current rate we might have
shortages in energy which could impact the economy.”
"Our economy will flourish.”
“We will need to find a new Earth.”
Trends and Findings
-Only one person thought there will be a positive impact on the future and that was when they looked at it economically
-Majority of people talked about negative impacts, such as prices for resources, damaging the environment, and global warming
-Some people talked about needing to inhabit a new planet and how that will lead to technological advancements
Trends and Findings
-Majority of responses were within the 600-699 range
-39% of the people surveyed were in the 500-599 and 700-799 range
-Some were in the 300-399 and 200-299 range as well
-No one consumed energy between 400-499 kWh
-Five people who had no idea how much energy in kWh they used in a month



-India is the only nation that produces more energy than it consumes
-China, USA, and India are in the top 3 because they are most populated
-Size of the nation does not reflect its energy consumption or production rates
Relevance:

Our society functions upon the resources gathered from the environment.
Affects the economy of various nations
Humans in general take resources to produce energy for granted and do not consider the impacts on the future.
Our whole way of life is centered around energy consumption and conservation
-Most people grasp at the more easier tasks when it comes to conserving energy, like turning off the lights (24/38=63%)
-Only a minority of individuals gave detailed responses (3/38=about 8%)
-92% of the people surveyed provided brief responses and talked about the easier tasks
Trends and Findings
What, Why, and How






















Sample:
Convenience sampling-family and friends in Calgary
With the exception of the data collected about the energy consumption and production of different nations
Even though we tried to get as many responses as we could, we still feel that the 38 responses we received in total are not enough to obtain accurate results and draw appropriate conclusions.
