Should we be more worried about not having enough, or not having the right kind of energy? Energies like coal, gas and uranium are found only in a few places in the world and they require huge military investment to secure them. Distributive energies are everywhere in the world. The sun shines all over the world every day, and the wind blows. We have enough distributed renewable green energy to provide for our species until kingdom come.
Where does the main responsibility lie for cutting carbon: with consumers, business or government? We need political mobilisation. We need to have the narrative spread and we need to engage every community with business, society and government to make this happen.
