Abstract: The conservation of energy can be approached in dozens of ways, by individuals, families, communities, farmers and industry. The 1980 Yearbook explores the uses of energy, describes ongoing energy research projects, explains the practical applications of available options, and discusses alternate sources of energy. In agriculture, some of the topics covered are the use and manufacture of fertilizers, greenhouse utilization and tips for producing cheaper plant and animal foods. Family living focuses on changing habits, home-insulation, better home and landscape design, and home management. Community activities include transportation pools, waste audits, recycling projects, education, etc. The various energy sources discussed include hydroelectric power, geothermal energy, wind, sun, wood, and farm wastes.
