Fossil fuels scarcity
Our economic model is almost entirely based on the use of non renewable energies such as oil, gas, coil and uranium. These fossil fuel resources are limited, not to mention pollutant. On the other hand, the global demand keeps growing and we will sooner or later face a shortage of fossil fuels. EDF’s Research and Development team is expecting the early signs of such a crisis around 2020.
Meanwhile, the massive use of these energy resources triggers an increase of greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon gas. This results in global warming. Climate change has already started and it’s too late to back it up. However, it is still time to prevent the damage from being too important. In order to avoid a global economic crisis, the control of our energy consumption and the use of renewable energies are the only acceptable solutions environmentally, economically and socially speaking.
