Renewable energy sources – foundations of life

The energy of life and death

When we use renewable sources of energy, we should ask ourselves: What is the connection between these sources and our existence? Life is the biggest miracle on our planet and its foundations are clear.

We could survive without oil, coal, gas and someday we should learn how to do it as they are limited, but life on our planet will come to an end if we do not have the heat and light from the sun, the air we breathe and the water. We are part of the biomass as well as our food is and, of course, the Earth is our cradle, our home, everything we have.

So, as life and energy are tight together, we should consider whether we need to be greedy about providing comfort through energy sources that we can’t regain or rely on the foundations that nature has set.
