Our Impact on the Planet.
What is energy and why is it so important to our lives? What are the concerns about our use of this essential global resource. From fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas to renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, 'Energy' looks at the issues surrounding energy use and how we can make sure we leave some for future generations.
The '21st Century Debates' series looks at the impact human development is having on the planet and how this could affect our future. At the dawn of a new millennium, we are consuming more energy and producing more waste than ever before. What are the effects of our consumption on the natural world and how long can it last? This series examines the difficult decisions faced by governments and organisations concerned with these issues and asks what we as individuals can do to help.
