This resource is a web page that introduces some ways in which energy is used to maintain our current lifestyle and produce consumer goods. It considers the mass production of goods, a brief history of fossil-fuel usage, the energy sources used in Australia and the energy required to produce clean water. Links to relevant chapters from the years 7 and 8 Pearson Science textbooks, and to animated videos, a photo story and an ecological footprint calculator, explore the ideas in greater depth. Other links lead to discussions about more sustainable energy use in the future.
