Doing more with less. Financialised capitalism is not very good at it. It is a question of adapting the Pricing of Markets in a token which reflects the resources available and their alternative potentials.
The “opportunity cost of Energy invested” as opposed to the energy cost of energy invested.
There are challenges transitioning from Oil to other fuels and also rather a lot of work to do on fuel cells. That said Materials Technology has transformed production capabilities and also many old Technologies have also been repurposed using 21st Century Materials.
Take Stirling engines just for starters. Take Heat Batteries and Heat pumps as another example. Seeds Tim is based upon one variable and that is the Energy cost of Energy as per the experience of the past 100 years. It is a massive assumption on the part of anyone to take the past 100 years as an indication of what the next 100 years has in store.
The Transition to the future, I am in the agreement, will take place over the next 50 years How it will look I have no idea I also know that it is not all bad news.
Bjorn Lomberg on the other perspective.

Surplus Energy Economics

WHY “BUSINESS AS USUAL” WILL NOT BE RESTORED

Where the purely biological prognosis for the Wuhan coronavirus is concerned, there’s at least a ton of speculation for every pinch of fact, and there would be no merit at all in adding to that speculation here. One of the few things that can be said about this with any confidence at all is that somehow, sometime, the epidemic will end.

The expectation then will be that, in the purely economic and financial spheres, what the economic and financial consensus likes to call “normality” will be restored.

As people and businesses go back to work, as the flow of goods and services resumes, and as ravaged supply lines are repaired, the economy will be expected to stage a full recovery. People wary of travelling will, we’ll be told, start boarding aircraft again, and even the cruise liner industry might start to shrug…
