  • 4. Fossil Fuels: What We Have?? <ul><li>Proved Reserves </li></ul><ul><li>Oil: 1,119 to 1,317 billion barrels </li></ul><ul><li>Gas: 6,183 - 6,381 trillion cubic feet = 1,161 billion barrel oil equivalent </li></ul><ul><li>Coal: 997,748 million short tons = 4,416 billion barrel oil equivalent </li></ul><ul><li>Daily Production Rates </li></ul><ul><li>Oil: 84 million barrels per day </li></ul><ul><li>Gas: 19 million barrels oil equivalent per day </li></ul><ul><li>Coal: 29 million barrel oil equivalent per day </li></ul><ul><li>Years of production left in the ground with the most optimistic proved reserve estimates </li></ul><ul><li>Oil: 43 years </li></ul><ul><li>Gas: 167 years </li></ul><ul><li>Coal: 417 years </li></ul><ul><li>These are 2006 Estimates the consumption is exponentially increasing and the reserves will last for much less time then expected above. </li></ul>

How Do We Waste Electricity? <ul><li>City Lights </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Major source of electricity wastage </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Inefficient machines </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Conversion of electrical energy to mechanical and other form of energy is not efficient and more than 20% of electricity is wasted in this operation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Careless Attitudes of Consumers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Consumers mistakenly think that they have right to waste energy when they are paying for it! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This attitude is not correct, we have no right to use the resources which are right of our future generations </li></ul></ul>

Only 5% converted into light 95% wasted in heat </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use efficient bulbs called “Energy Savers” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fan </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Waste electricity in overcoming friction and in generation of heat at regulator </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use properly lubricated fans with at high speed. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Refrigerator </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ovoid frequent opening of door </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Electric Iron </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cultivate culture to iron cloths on weekly basis, it will not only save energy but time also </li></ul></ul><ul><li>TV / DVD </li></ul><ul><ul><li>TV / DVD should be turned on only when being watched. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Air Conditioner </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Major contributor of energy crisis in hot countries.
