The real dilemma, which cannot be answered in the framework of this fake choice is this: why the heck do we need so much energy in the first place? Why don’t we scale down our activities instead (especially in the Global North) and switch to a local, low-power, low-tech economy instead?

The end of this civilization is not an event, but a process with multiple root causes… and by the way it is already in the making for decades now.
