Most governments and others combat climate change by zeroing in on carbon emissions. But while large-scale transition to renewable resources might provide a safer alternative to oil and gas, it will not erase energy and resource dependency, which will continue to expand in line with economic and population growth.

Even renewables have their limits. Warnings are already being issued about the dangers of excessive demand for biofuels, leading to the clearing of rainforests and increasing competition for land between food and energy production.

In this Green Room writer’s view, this as an opportunity to live a more sustainable lifestyle, a liberating and rewarding experience to create a better world.
