There is a lot of talk in the world today about the energy crisis and
about ways that we can contribute to the solution. I don't know about
you, but I get overwhelmed and tired when I hear about the nearly endless
amount of problems that threaten our environment each day. I am tired of
hearing about global solutions that are aimed at making massive changes.
Instead, I want to hear about the small changes that I as an individual
can make that will help our energy crisis. So I've done a little research
for your sake and mine, and I've come up with a few basic methods of
alternative energy that almost anyone can follow.

First, and rather obvious, is to drive your car as little as possible. I
hate hearing about solutions that are so unrealistic that they will never
happen. You know as well as I do that we cannot all stop driving our cars
every day. But maybe, just maybe, we can all look for small and simple
ways to carpool and to cut down on the amount that we need to drive. Do
you have a neighbor that works with you? If so, then contribute to
alternative energy by carpooling and leaving one of the cars at home. Or
even better, look for every chance to walk or ride a bike. I think we get
caught up in all of the scientific terms about energy resourcing that we
forget the most true source of alternative energy: ourselves. The more we
can use our physical bodies, the better health we will be in and the more
we will be contributing to the international effort to save energy.

Other simple methods of going for alternative energy are to shut off
lights during the day and let the natural light of the sun brighten up
your room or office. I cannot tell you how many homes and offices I have
entered in the middle of the day that had lights blaring while the sun
was beating in from outisde. So take a good look around you and see what
extra lights and other appliances you have plugged in that you really
don't need to use. The chances are high that everyone reading this has a
few small ways that they could save energy each day.
Looking for various alternative energy sources is what will save the
world. Like candlelight? Then consider using candles to light your room
at night while you read. The world may not be changed by one more order
from the government, but it just might be changed as individuals do their
part in helping find and use methods of alternative energy.
