Denial and clinging to an outdated social model won't help anything. A reduction in total energy access will not be the only bottleneck we must move through. Although it is the proximate driver of everything we rely on. There are many other essential minerals and elements that are approaching peak such as Phosphorous which will push food production volumes and yields back closer to the pre Green Revolution totals and methods of the 50's where we once again rely on organic soil maintenance and more of the work will come from human and animal effort worldwide.
We are facing down the biggest change that humans have ever had to navigate. The end of growth. And there is no planet B. Which requires a complete paradigm shift in the way we organize society. It will be immensely hard to wake everyone to agree to the changes that are required and refocus in order to get it done. But the alternative is to just let the market carry on mindlessly sloughing forward toward the quickest payback of our hijacked brain reward chemistry. Like yeast in a bottle of grape juice. Until the cork just pops and spews out whatever random bits are left
