The people of earth are obsessed with electricity, so much so that we will do just about anything to produce it. Unfortunately the most common method as we all know is burning fossil fuels.
We use 11 billion tonnes of oil every year, at this rate of consumption we are currently trending towards completely exhausting our coal, gas, and oil by 2088.
The age of the oil titans controlling the energy industry is coming to an end. The age of renewable energy is now in full tilt with any obstructions brushed aside like the dust of yesterdays fossils.
