The Mirage of Fossil Fuel Wealth - Our Energy Future is Green, Renewable, Decentralised

Vicente López-Ibor Mayor

A geo-politically volatile energy world can make oil finds like last week's Horse Hill discovery seem pertinent to British energy security.

But the continuous reliance on fossil fuels to avert energy security risks blind-sighting us to the bigger picture. The real obstacles facing energy security and self-sufficiency are structural.

Our energy infrastructure must shift away from a centralized system towards a more decentralized model that empowers those consuming energy to also play a part in producing it.

"Unfortunately this continuous reliance on fossil fuels to enhance energy security risks blind-sighting us to the bigger picture. The real obstacles facing British energy security and self-sufficiency are systemic and structural."

Thank you, Mr. Mayor. This statement could not be truer; yet across the MSM and inside message threads a legion of opinion-shapers will work overtime to lay the blame on the individual Western citizen-consumer.

As reminded in California where citizens are being made to scale back on their water usage, it's primarily Big Agriculture and Big Energy that's sucking up the lion's share of that precious "element."

Individuals can contribute by cutting back, yet as you mentioned the crux of the crisis IS structural and systemic.
