Economic growth is essential to society. Some countries are able to reduce energy consumption and have economic growth; others depend on higher energy consumption. The world’s economy growth principle pushes the energy demand to the threshold of limited resources with increasing environmental impact. When abuse of the environmental system lasts long enough, the result can backfire on world economy; examples in history show the growth followed by saturation, turning into a catastrophic decline, and ultimately destabilizing the bases of our culture and political systems.
The principle of infinite growth in a finite planet is fundamentally flawed. Although no precise conclusions or quantitative assessments can be made with respect to the global oil resources, the critical imbalance between the baseline demand and the remaining resources seems foreseeable around 2030. More than four hundred nuclear power plants account for ~14% of the world’s demand for electricity. Renewable energy resources such as sun, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal, are naturally replenished, and cover ~16% of the global energy consumption …
