The younger generation in America is the first one to become drivers in a world and an educational system that is aware of Global Warming and the resulting Climate Change, so they have a greater role in conservation than previous generations, even though all humans should be responsible for conservation.

Some points to include in your essay is to establish responsible driving and transportation habits early on, including driving fuel efficient vehicles, avoiding unnecessary trips, carpooling, and especially, using mass transit and walking whenever possible.

You can emphasize that in addition to saving money and helping the environment, youth would also be making America less dependent on foreign oil, which is often very costly and unstable as an energy source.
