IS IT POSSIBLE THAT WE CAN GO INTO A "DARK AGE"?
At the rate we are consuming energy and depleting our natural resources,
this seems unavoidable. To prevent or just slow the process down, we
need to downscale and rescale everything we do and the way we do it.
Solar and wind technology could be used to generate some electricity but
probable at a very local and small scale. Even hydro-electricity could
be used; the downside to it all is that all these methods need fuel to
start off with and to maintain. Natural gas production all over the
world is declining at a steady rate. Ignorance by the public and our
leaders aggregate matters even further. So prepare yourself, what Cape
Town is going through at the moment will be nothing compared to the
"Dark Age" we will most definitely enter in the near future.
