Most of the world's energy is produced from fossil fuels. The purpose of this series is to investigate whether we can live without fossil fuels. Can we conceivably live sustainably?
In part I of this series, we touched upon the key motivations behind the need for a better energy policy. Anthropogenic climate change was one of them, and in this post I'd examine whether there is a point in us doing anything when "China's out of control!".
A short note on the key motivations that drive contemporary energy policy discussions.
The heated debate on energy policy and anthropogenic climate change is fundamentally about numbers. But actual numbers are rarely mentioned and, instead, we are inundated with innumerate codswallop.
