Due to ongoing global development and economic growth, the environment degradation has become a crucial issue for human’s survival. Human’s health, welfare and standard of living are influenced by environmental deterioration, especially the natural resource consumption and contamination (Vivian, 1994). In the past few years, the continuous exploitation of resource has supported for development of economy, as a result of environmental deterioration, which can be demonstrated to be continued (OECD, 2014). Developing countries are confronted imminently with tackling environment degradation, which included the natural resource depletion, contamination, ecological imbalance and climate change, because the achievement from developing

Renewable resources are exploited because the technology was developed with global improvement in the standard of living. These are not only for current provision, but also for the next generation. According to Twidell and Weir (2015), they stated that the provision of renewable resources is recyclable and stable, which exists in the regional environment. Union of concerned scientists (2015) also claimed that there is a potential and immense renewable energy, such as strong breeze, sunshine, plant residues, terrestrial heat and flowing water in America, to supply constantly electricity for countries. In addition, comparison between renewable and conventional energy, renewable energy is less harmful to global warming emissions than conventional energy. For example, the natural gas releases about 0.6 to 2 pounds of carbon dioxide and it is released about 1.4 to 3.6 pounds by coal. Whereas, solar and hydroelectric energy just emit between 0.07 to 0.2 pounds of carbon dioxide (Union of Concerned Scientists, 2015). Moreover, renewable energy obtains constantly from the local environment, so that the expenditure is …show more content…
They are, in effect, less useful because many strategies need to cooperate with governments and enterprises. Developing countries are facing to equalization between improvement in the standard of living and environmental protection due to the concentration of financial increasing at first (He, Huo & Zhang, 2002). In addition, urban air pollution is not merely contributed by vehicular emission. Indoor air pollution also damage to the environment when people are burning coals and woods for cooking in developing countries. The evidence from Bruce, Perez-Padilla and Albalak (2000), it showed that native energy was supplied by coal, biomass and plant residues, whilst these fuels are consumed in a half of the population in developing
