“The answer doesn’t lie in the
ideological debate characterizing these topics, between realists and
environmentalists; maybe the answer is much more simple, like the parable of
the talents: we have the instruments, renewables, energy efficiency, the interest
and the economic power; should we ignore the fact that we have the chance to
make fossil fuels last longer by disintensifying their use and consequently
lowering the emissions’ pressure, or should we allow these talents to be buried
somewhere while we wait, hoping that somebody in the future will take care of
the problem? But, in the future, we may have already allowed the monster to
grow way too much, to the point where it will become invincible, and we might
leave our children with an unresolvable problem, an enemy that they will not be
able to defeat”.
