The consistent use of fossil fuels emitting excessive amounts of carbon dioxide is a major environmental issue that should not be neglected, and yet millions of people continue with their normal day routines, putting off the alternative possibility of renewable energy. When people don’t take responsibility for their own personal actions and instead choose to ignore the problem, it results in a social trap in which everyone thinks that they cannot make a difference, being that it is only the actions of one single person, and it becomes harmful for society. Each person wants to make it easier for themselves by using cheaper, more convenient fossil fuels, but if people continue this trend, it will be followed by more problems in the future that will become increasingly more difficult to deal with. However, if people make an effort to use clean renewable energy, it will create long-lasting results that will prove to be beneficial to the United States economy, society, and environment.
