    Yes, food. And you need massive amounts of fossil fuels to produce food. How many people have to starve before we accept that.

    Jim Graham says:

    Energy is at base of every modern human undertaking, from fertilizers for crops to trading bitcoin.

    The reality is as fossil fuels are withdrawn they have to be replaced at least three fold.

    Yes renewables are part of the answer, but on their own, no where near enough. The harsh reality is the globe has to adopt nuclear energy on a large scale or face rapidly increasing poverty and ultimately starvation.

    An Cud says:

    because God loved the world so much that he gave his only son Jesus Christ for all mankind so that any man who believes in Jesus Christ may inherit eternal life through him if we confess our sins Jesus Christ is faithful and just to forgive us and only through Jesus can we inherit eternal life881
