«The world is facing an energy crisis, but hardly anyone wants to hear that. Peak oil and the resulting decline in production in different countries is an empirical fact. The Club of Rome was not mistaken: there are limits to growth. Because of Climate Change, coal is not an option. Uranium is also scarce. I am glad that the Basel SIPER scientifically investigates these problems and makes them public. We are in a similar situation to a group of mountaineers who are roped together and facing a storm. We need ”guides” to lead us on yet unknown routes safely back into the valley.»
