Our lifestyle depends on energy, this is an unalterable fact at this point.
We can rethink it and change it. Right now, we know that our way of living is based on consuming more than we should, making energy another overexploited resource.
So far, while we talk about promoting green energy, we should also talk about degrowth . It is since 1972 that it has been known that unlimited growth is not possible . As we have increased our consumption of everything, including energy, above the limits of the planet, working on reducing the use of power seems just fair.
The solution to the energy problem is not only to shift from non-renewable sources to full renewables. this is just a good start. The solution is to completely rethink our need for energy. That would have an incredible impact.
