Explosive growth in the human population over the last 200 years has resulted in a significant increase in energy demand.
Energy consumption has outpaced population growth by a 3:1 ratio since 1900. The result of this human experiment is unprecedented levels of atmospheric greenhouse gases with the potential to adversely affect our environment.
