Degrowth, expensive oil, and the new economics of energy

"Expensive oil ... does appear to be suffocating the debt-ridden, global economy, just as it is trying to recover ...

 

Unfortunately, mainstream economists, including those in government, seem oblivious to the close relationship between energy, debt, and economy, and this means they are unable to see that expensive oil is one of the primary underlying causes of today’s economic problems.

On the matter of climate change, indeed the stakes in the 2016 presidential election have never been higher.

B. This article discusses how big an impact this election will have not only on our country, but on our world. Scientists suggest that this is America's last chance at electing an official who will advert climate change! Scientists predict we have until 2050 to cut down our carbon footprint until we are truly in the hole, but recently a U.N. panel has concluded that it could be as soon as 2036. Although that seems far away, our upcoming President will soon be making decisions that will ultimately effect this global crisis and determine whether we will land in the safe zone...or the danger zone. Therefore, it is imperative to remain educated on candidate's platforms regarding ecological problems.

C. This article explains the severity of our climate change crisis. We have roughly 20 years to change the course of path we have been following for centuries! It is logical to focus in on these issues because no matter the party we are in favor of, we all share a common goal and that is to save our only planet. This relates to AP Government because as the election comes forth, issues like these will be debated and discussed and ultimately our President will be responsible for deciding our course of action. We better hope it is an effective one. This article is bias but for the right reasons, the author is passionate about this world, just as all its inhabitants should be. More effort should be placed on the conservation of our planet.
