The main problem isn’t that we use energy, but how we produce and consume energy resources. As long as we continue to cover our energy needs primarily by combustion of fossil fuels or nuclear reactions, we are going to have the problems, the environmental impacts, social and sustainability problems. What we really need are energy sources that will last forever and can be used without pollution of the environment.


Each year, the equivalent of approx. 10 000 million tons of coal is consumed on earth as energy. About 40 % from this is based on oil and together with coal and natural gas more than 90 % of the total energy consumption result from carbon atoms in these fossil fuels. The consequence will be a global warming (greenhouse effect) and the lack of resources in the future.
