Exclude money as intermediary party of the life-energy cycle

Life depends on energy during the whole cycle and again and again. Our comfort and the world we’ve built so far also depend on energy. Of course, electricity is just a tiny fraction of the energy around us, but our fragile nature and needs are tightly connected with it. Electricity was found and started to be explored recently, but for one century it helped tripling the population of human beings on the planet, something that evolution couldn’t achieve for more than fifty thousand years. Oh, and do not forget that in that century we had two World wars and so many bloody domestic conflicts. Electricity was found by innovative and scientific minds and none of them was ever aiming at money, though almost all of the implementers of the same electricity were and still are focused on gold.

Money (all kind of added value measurements), on the other hand, is a creation for assessment of the human labor, a creation that has been used almost from the beginning of the same evolution though the form money took has changed several times. Money is not a real power but the measured work is. Now, thanks to the electricity and the same genius minds money is just bites (bytes) of information. But if start to think rationally, for fifty thousand years money has brought thousands of wars and billions of deaths, incl. the above mentioned, while electricity has given life.

So now, if electricity is just a part of the life-energy cycle and someone is starting to measure the energy through the mediation of money what would you think he is trying to cause?

Where the wind may blow us

Renewable energy is what we think today when speaking of wind power, but just few hundred years ago this mighty invisible force was used for discovering new worlds.  The World’s economy, as we know it today, was formed by ship’s sails and human curiosity.

Men, women, energy and an energy union

The Council of European Energy Regulators was established in 2000 aiming at creation of a single, competitive, efficient and sustainable internal energy market. It is a not-for-profit association that is closely linked to the European Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators. They share similar objectives, so let’s define what sustainable development is in energy case.

Renewable energy exploration – economical wonders

Renewable energy sources were doubted. Renewable energy was subsidized. Technology was blamed as unreliable. The Earth was flat and the stakes were burning.
But now it seems that there are believers. Believers in the power of the sun, wind, water. A power that could not be measured. And these believers support the technology and exploration of these resources. For less than a decade, their efforts have made the solar technology four times cheaper, while in the same time the prices of the fossils were going up. What would a reasonable man prefer as an investment?
