Resource wars in the era of renewables

Our energy needs are just dust

Renewable energy sources are slowly pushing away the dependence on traditional energy. Each and every day we break the chains of our reliance on limited in quantity resources. Each and every day the technology improves and we gain more and more energy from the nature without destroying it.

Energy independence – oil, gas, nuclear power, renewable energy, money and time

Wind energy generators and flowers

Taking a glimpse at the debates on energy matters puts a lot of questions. It is obvious that when you look through the eyes of a profit it is easier to keep the status quo. It always is easier to earn money when you steal instead of creating. The simple fact is that when we use natural resources, we steal from the planet and we’re not giving them back. We consume the products we steal and forget about our deeds. But as the human laws are set to protect the community, the natural laws are formed to protect the eternity, and in both cases there is no theft unpunished. The slight difference is in the time factor – the human laws are based on a single person’s life, while natural ones are part of a way longer cycle.
