We should save energy to help those poor animals(humans are also animals). Saving energy benefits us by:
1.Saving animals and if your a carnivore it also helps you eat meat so you won't have to resort to vegetables.
2.We could also stop polluting the enviroment which helps us not absorb the toxins so we can lose weight caused by toxins and live longer and healthier.
3.Making reasearch easier like studying atoms which end up contaminated.
4. Stopping another power surge like the blackout in New York.
5.Making us pay less for our taxes while helping us save money for food, clothes, toys, games, etc.
So now it is my opponents turn to speak so liste n carefully to his words also JustCallMeTarzan please go easy on me im new and in Middle School.

My opponent lists several reasons why we should save energy... However, some of these reasons are somewhat flawed. I'll respond to them and provide some commentary...

1. Saving Animals

I'm not sure how animal deaths and energy consumption are related...

2. Pollution

More energy = need for more efficient energy = nuclear power = less pollution.

3. Research

More energy = more capacity for complex studies/machines like particle accelerators.

4. NY Blackout

More energy = less frequent blackouts.

5. Taxes

More energy = need for more efficient energy = cheaper energy.

***********************************

Consuming MORE energy and building nuclear power plants to replace aging coal plants will provide more, cheaper energy, as well as remove a terrible source of pollution. The answer is clear - consume more energy.

**For the record, I would not have taken this debate if I'd known it was 1000 characters... **
