  • World energy consumption increased from 11.5 EJ in 1860 to 463 EJ in 2005, and is projected to be 691 EJ in 2030 and 850 EJ in 2050. The principal driver of such a drastic surge in energy demand is the increase in world population which was merely 1 billion in 1800, 1.6 billion in 1900, 6.0 billion in 2000, and is projected to be 7.5 billion in 2030 and 9.2 billion in 2050 before stabilizing at ≈10 billion by 2100. Heavy reliance on fossil-fuel consumption has increased atmospheric CO2… CONTINUE READING
