I suspect that many of us believe we will be able to transition to new forms of energy without reducing our onsumption or making significant changes in how we live.
This is going to be one of the biggest hurdles for us. For those who are trying to promote a gentler, slower, simpler way of life. And those who havent even considered this as an adaptation they need to make. I fear this latter group are going to suffer the consequences of this self-imposed blindness at levels that may end up being debilitating, the more they put off this inconvenient reality.
