What would the world be like if coal and fossil fuel are banned as energy source and replaced with renewable energy?

Give the devil his due. Inexpensive reliable energy has done something remarkable. It has lifted humans out of poverty. We need only look at one metric to convince ourselves of this fact, and that is longevity. People from all locations are living longer. Please take the time to look at the works of the late Hans Rosling. He had the most beautiful way of describing the world. His work has been picked up by folks like Max Roser. Please take the time to click on the links at the end of this note. The world has become a better place. There is still work to be done, but we should celebrate humanity’s societal and technological accomplishments. It's a good thing we have done; something to be proud of. Take away energy and these trends likely evaporate and we will once again return to living in squaller. All aspects of life will deteriorate. This has come at a cost. Humans are increasing the entropy of the earth. Here entropy means we are consuming energy and material. We take advantage of high concentrations of fuels and materials to run provide for our prosperity. For example, bauxite from the tropics is used to make the aluminum in your cell phone. Coal, natural gas, and uranium are used to power it. In all cases we have taken a concentrated product and turned it into a less useful waste; always a rising entropy. The world is not a closed system as it does receive energy from the sun. We harvest this energy as solar radiation, wind, and tidal energy. However, this energy is not free. We must construct the machinery to collect and concentrate the resource. Unlike the usual human process of taking advantage of the concentrated sources of fuel, wind and solar are diffuse. There is an ongoing debate to determine if the world can be powered by 100% renewable energy with or without nuclear energy, but that’s another story… What the world might be like in the future if fossil fuels run out and there is not enough renewable energy to replace them? It’s safe to say that the progress we have made will unravel. Without energy to sustain us, many will be visited by Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death… Don’t loose faith, there are so many different ways we can reduce energy consumption. If you haven’t already done so already, please take a look at the material prepared by Paul Hawken and the Drawdown team (video below). The team’s solutions will surprise you. Regards, APDahlen

Blackout PDF: All You Need to Know

We appreciate your understanding and support and continue to work to improve it for everyone to benefit from. This message is available in a different language. Download the text in: Portuguese [CELL] [Deutsche] _____________________________________________________________ Hello fellow citizenry, As the world continues to grow colder and the days get shorter, our needs in energy grow more acute than ever. How many of us out there have noticed the growing pains and inconveniences energy has given us? The fact of the matter is fossil fuels are finite. They can neither continue to supply us with energy indefinitely, and they must eventually leave the ground on which we stand. The following list is meant to show the global scope of the problem. I believe that the time has finally come to start taking responsibility for this crisis. This is the list of the current top 100 problems at the United Nations and the Global Challenges Network‏(GNC), each.
