I would suggest that energy will be sufficient for whatever level of growth we reach.
There is no energy crisis or shortage. There are advanced technologies that currently exist that would replace all currently known and used
The reason they aren't known is that the limiters of our scientific and economic advancement have throttled these advances to a zero usage. They
will only be allowed to emerge as absolutely required, and even then, the release of these technologies will level the energy playing field among
nations - something that right now cannot be tolerated.
The problem is that as humans, for every step forward we advance in one discipline, we slide backwards one step in another discipline.
We as humans have an innate tendency toward self-destruction. It is our essence to be emotional creatures, and while those emotions can be a means of
self-gratification and instill a desire to advance, the negative emotions seem to manifest a built-in degree of failure as the frailties that we are
cursed with cannot be overcome.
Like crabs in a bucket, one starts climbing out, and the others pull him right back in. For every advancement of one society, culture, group, or
individual, another is pulled back down to maintain a limited advancement.
Our highs continue to spike to higher levels, but our lows descend correspondingly deeper.
As a species, we are too selfish and jealous to reach any level of true, net advancement.
Technology advances, but we as a species do not.
I'm very sorry to conclude that mankind is a wretched, miserable lot of self-destructive animals who will likely never reach their true capacities
until emotions can be subverted and controlled.
