SMALL STEPS OF FUEL CONSERVATION CAN MAKE A BIG CHANGE
Our world is ruled by fuels. People have used fuels for thousands of years, but in the last century we have started to consume it in large quantities. Fuels are the source through which a substance is burnt or heated. The use of fuels is increasing day by day. The sources of fuel such as wood, coal, petrol, kerosene are getting depleted at a very high rate. Doesn’t this question arise in your mind, ‘’Will the future generations be introduced to fuels?’’ According to my calculations the answer is ‘no’. Because the rate at which the fuels are getting depleted is very high. It is our primary duty to save fuels.
It is said that tiny droplets of water build an ocean. In the same way our small steps of fuel conservation can make a big change. In a few sectors where people still use chulhas, theyuse wood as fuel. Trees are chopped off for procuring wood which has a detrimental effect on our ecosystem. Trees play a vital role in the functioning of our ecosystem. So, the government must embolden people to use LPG. This dominant step will abolish the use of wood as fuels. As I mentioned earlier, our small efforts can make a big change, saving a few drops of petrol will be a considerable step towards saving fuel.If we do not push the accelerator down too far at least some amount of fuel is saved. Yes, this is true, so always accelerate your vehicle smoothly. One of the important petrol or diesel conservation steps include checking the tyre pressure or sticking to the speed limit. It is always tempting to turn on your ac round the year. But if the weather is cool you don’t need to turn on your ac. This will help in saving fuel. There are limited sources of fuel and we need to preserve them for future generations. Or else we will be named as a selfish generation by our next generations. It is our prime duty to save them. The only way we can preserve them is by using alternative sources of energy. The alternative sources of energy include all the renewable resources. Instead of hydroelectricity, solar energy can be used. We all must be knowing, in Tamil Nadu the world’s largest solar power project is under execution. This will make our country power surplus. Atomic power plants is a substitution for thermal power plants as atomic energy causes less pollution. Also petrol and diesel consuming cars can be replaced by electric cars. These cars run on electricity and are the best method of fuel conservation. The Tata company has recently launched electric cars in the market. Using public transport can also save fuels to a large amount. Carpooling must also be encouraged. Recently the government has made it mandatory to not use vehicles which are older than fifteen years. As the engines become old they start to consume more fuels.
We consider that our country will be a developed country in the next few years. But what if there are no sources of fuel? We would need to import more fuel from the foreign countries. In such a case, most of our income would be spent on purchasing fuels. So we need to conserve fuels for a better future. And yes, the fuels can be saved. There are various tips and suggestions to save fuel. Do not burn fuel as they release toxic and carcinogenic gases in the atmosphere. To save fuel all we need is people’s participation and togetherness. After all it is our duty to keep our planet healthy. Hence we all must follow the rules of sustainable development. Conserve fuels for a better future.
