To burn our own house

Green energy

There is a place on Earth that is 100% powered by renewable energy sources – the three atolls of Tokelau.
Previously the island country was powered by shipping in thousands of barrels of diesel fuel. According to PowerSmart, the New Zealand based company that installed the Tokelau Renewable Energy Project, diesel generators were burning around 200 liters of fuel daily on each atoll, meaning more than 2,000 barrels of diesel were used to generate electricity in Tokelau each year.
And even the oil rich kingdom of Saudi Arabia announced to the world its plan to reach a 100 percent alternative green energy supply for Mecca. It is hardly to say that this is the greenest part of the globe. Sustainable energy future is the one determined by today’s decisions correlated to future needs. The oil demand will continue to increase as the oil is used to produce thousands of items that we just consume. Almost every part of my computer and all other electronic devices are closely connected with the “black gold” and on the other hand my life is already connected to the Web. There are so many items in my every day’s life that consist of fossil related products that I feel I’m burning my own house. And the question is: When the last wood is burned, what will shelter me from the storm?
