Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world – stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.
— Albert Einstein
To make sure we have plenty of energy in the future, it's up to all of us to use energy wisely.
We must all conserve energy and use it efficiently. It's also up to those who will create the new energy technologies of the future.
All energy sources have an impact on the environment. Concerns about the greenhouse effect and global warming, air pollution, and energy security have led to increasing interest and more development in renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal, wave power and hydrogen.
But we'll need to continue to use fossil fuels and nuclear energy until new, cleaner technologies can replace them. One of you who is reading this might be another Albert Einstein or Marie Curie and find a new source of energy. Until then, it's up to all of us.
The future is ours, but we need energy to get there.
