The Energy Philosopher

2897l

I’ve started a new YouTube channel called The Energy Philosopher where I’ll be posting short video segments discussing energy and climate issues. The first episode is called: “Where do we go from here?” and provides a layman’s overview of our energy predicament.¬†There is also a facebook page with the same title, (please like and share) and I’ve reserved the URL theenergyphilosopher.com. Follow me on twitter¬†@EnergPhilosophy.

This was kind of a spur-of-the-moment idea. I’m doing these in one take on my MacBook Pro webcam with no lighting, no editing, and no frills. Information is the priority here. I hope to achieve 95% accuracy, if there are a few mistakes, I consider it an acceptable trade off to allow these segments to get done at all. Time permitting, and depending on viewer response, I plan to produce new content on a regular basis.

Some potential topics for upcoming episodes will include: “Can we drill our way to energy independence?” “Are biofuels a sustainable substitute for petroleum?” “How are energy and water related?” “Should we shut down our nuclear plants?” “Are higher energy prices good for the economy?” “What is the definition of natural capitalism?” “How can city-dwellers live more sustainably?” “Won’t carbon taxes kill the economy?” “What is the meaning of the phrase ‘cradle-to-cradle?’”

For now, I hope you enjoy episode 1.

Episode 1: Where do we go from here?

We think of and talk of matter as a thing. But what is energy. We can't see it or hear it, we can only see and feel it's effects. It may be that energy is like a verb, a way of being. As a way of being, I think it could be infinite.

The issue I have with all this climate change is whether or not it's legitimate. Personally, I think the toxic societies we live in have had negative repercussions for our environment, that's obvious. But I also think the planet has a way of correcting itself, whether that bolds well for us or not.
