How do you know that your light will definitely turn on within seconds of your flicking the switch? Ready and reliable access to energy has dramatically changed how human beings live their lives. In this talk, we will discuss how humans have harnessed nature’s energy resources and how in turn these resources have impacted our lives. We will look at the systems that get electricity into our homes and workspaces, and the consequences of those systems.
