In the Crash Course we will learn a few foundational Key Concepts. None is more important than exponential growth. Understanding this will greatly enhance our chances to form a better future.

Por fin ha llegado el momento de vincular la economía con la energía. ¡Por fin!

En una reciente entrevista, Peter Schiff, de Euro Pacific Capital, describió la Economía como “la ciencia de satisfacer demandas ilimitadas con recursos limitados”. Si les diesen a escoger, la mayoría de los seres humanos preferirían vivir como multimillonarios, pero está claro que no es posible, incluso con la superabundancia de energía excedentaria que tenemos. Hemos sido lo suficientemente afortunados como para disponer de cantidades ingentes de energía excedentaria con la cual trabajar.

Y aquí es donde la historia se vuelve interesante de verdad. ¿Se acuerdan de los gráficos exponenciales que les mostré? En teoría, no habría nada malo en vivir en un mundo lleno de curvas exponenciales de crecimiento y de declive, siempre que dicho mundo no tuviese fronteras. Sin embargo, las funciones exponenciales adquieren una enorme importancia cuando se acercan a los límites físicos, como parece ser el caso del petróleo en un futuro muy cercano. Tanto los hallazgos como la producción de petróleo indican que podríamos haber llegado ya al límite exponencial del petróleo.
