Translated title of the contribution: Ethics And Non-Renewable Energies For Energy Production And Consumption

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this work is known as a professional must perform his work especially in the ethics applied to engineering having moral and deontological principles. Ethics implies concern for oneself and for all others. It is the commitment of man that must lead him to his personal perfection. It refers to a free internal decision that does not represent a simple acceptance of what others think, say and do. As professional ethics we can say that each career has its own ethical framework, which determines a set of rules or norms according to the profession that is dedicated, following these rules is a basic principle, because they help solve problems and the way in which we must act no matter how difficult the circumstance that arises. Individual ethics seeks the common good and tries to make one's own benefits disappear. Ethics is related to engineering at a time when our way of thinking, behavior and decisions are related and influence and contribute to important changes regarding technological advances and even more when we use the advances of science for human welfare, however, also when used against, not only the advance in engineering will make a difference, but even more important is the awareness we have about the use of engineering since, in the case of this work, that it is useful for us to produce electrical energy with resources that are limited, such as non-renewable resources if in the long run this causes a great loss of living organisms that the planet has, as well as pollution and human health, which also serves the use of clean energy favorable to the environment, if we do not have effective access to them, at least not yet, but this is expected to change over the years. This issue of the environment will be dealt with by environmental ethics. An analysis is presented of what environmental ethics implies in the processes of production and demand of energy, since these have their origin in renewable and non-renewable energies. Special emphasis will be placed on the production of energy as an important element for the development of society without forgetting the concept of sustainable development, which consists of achieving development that satisfies our needs without compromising or affecting the needs of new generations, taking into account three themes, economic, social and, in the case that concerns us, environmental. In the case of the environmental issue one of the objectives of sustainability is to ensure that the impact of environmental activity on a given ecosystem is not greater than the capacity it has to recover naturally. As for the economic issue is promoted that these activities are profitable in the long term through the reasonable use of natural resources and finally the social issue that ensures that productive activities in these communities are in harmony with their environment and their customs, this is an essential issue especially in the extraction of non-renewable resources such as oil extraction.
