Ethics and Energy

Ethics and Energy
Just over 100 years ago man kinds yearn for progression both on an industrial and technological scale was almost their primary objective of existence. It seemed that no environmental, natural or human issue was too large or important in contrast to the larger picture of progression and gain of knowledge. Mankind became greedy with power and had little if any regard for the damage that they may do to mother earth for the generation to come. More, more, more was the philosophy and where it came from and whom it affected was brushed under the carpet like yesterdays dust. As the industrial revolution, Second World War and nuclear age dawned upon mankind, daily advancement was at such a rate in leaps and bounds that it seemed there would never be any issue of ethics. When finally the world realized with a difficult awakening of environmental disasters and depleted natural energy such as coal, oil and gas that we were venerable to our own demise; slowly but surely but surely we started to take sight of our responsibility to ourselves, our children and the environment.In the 21st century we have started to understand that we have used over 50% in the last 100 years of the earths natural energy and need to find a renewable energy source. Of course there is technological findings and advancement in the fields of wind solar, geothermal, tide and nuclear power however as never before; we are more and more concerned with how ethics should play a role in our future. We have become aware that the needs for mankind are just as important as those for the environment and those of the individual. What earth we leave for our children is our responsibility and we need to set an example so that future generations don?t make the same mistake as past ones. We believe that mankind is at its time in history where decisions on energy, its use and its source are tantamount to existence as we know it. We are responsible to ourselves, the environment and to each other. This should now be the basis for a more secure, healthy and prosperous future in energy.
