Resources & Pollution
Air and water are our most important resources, because they allow us to live. However, life as we know it cannot continue without a reliable energy supply for basic needs such as heating and cooking, the production of material goods, and transportation. These articles discuss past and present issues regarding energy supply, water, and pollution which can affect these and other resources important to our way of life.
