The wonderful world of energy

Energy: the life force. Without it, we’d be inanimate nothings. We wouldn’t have cells that generate new tissue or minds that fire signals from neuron to neuron. We wouldn’t have sunlight to warm us or to feed our plants. We wouldn’t have plants. Life depends on energy. Motion depends on energy. And, on a less fundamental level, our lifestyles depend on energy too. Having a basic understanding of energy – what it is, how it works, and why it’s important – should be something we all aspire to. The below infographic is an excellent place to start.
