Conservation and Human Life We rely on energy resources for everything that we do, every day.  It is so ubiquitous that we rarely think of where it comes from or what it takes to generate it.  We have trouble conserving because we often don’t think of energy in terms of the costs associated with using the myriad devices and tools that permeate our daily lives. Yet there is a cost.  Often that cost is human.  We learned today that the last of the bodies of 29 coal miners killed in a mine explosion in Naoma, West Virginia were recovered.
