Contemplating Big Energy

Unless humans wake up and figure out that burning carbon, whether in the form of coal petroleum or natural gas is based upon the accessibility of a finite, non-renewable substance, the extraction of and use of which leads to killing this planet, we are ultimately doomed as a human species on this planet.

If I were to be born on this planet a hundred or two hundred years in the future, I would really want to know that mankind, before me, has figured out how to better harness and leverage wind, tidal and solar energy. The only energy component that we can be certain exists throughout the universe is the solar power from the stars, if we are ever going to get off this planet, let alone survive in the long term on this planet, we better figure out how to leverage solar energy a hell of a lot better than we do now.
