About this class
This course is designed to start you on a new career path towards becoming an Energy Futurist or just out of interest. Energy Futurists earn huge amounts of money as advisors to government, businesses and in-house, using their skills to wisely invest in the future. You don't need to do the course on financials or on Micro-renewable energy but they will help you a little.
This course will solve you several problems in one go: you will know what is viable and what is not on a grander, strategic level, but you will also gain knowledge of many measurements and indicators that are not taught in physics, economics courses or in college or university. This will mean you can stand out from the crowd, with secret knowledge known only to a few Energy Futurists.
Do you have a curiosity about the future? Are you interested in shaping the future long into the second half of the 21st century?
If you are you might be ready to become and Energy Futurist? Energy Futurists are specialist that every business should have. They can earn a lot of money, but often the courses they go on never actually tell them what they need to know. They are confined by the need to calculate carbon emissions from their business; or sold an idea that there is nothing we can do about the future. This course however helps you to become a real Energy Futurist with potential of better earnings via writing and blogging about the future of energy.
This course will teach you the probably future of energy. We consider the evidence of resource depletion; potential solutions, challenges we face in implementing the solutions; and outline 3 possible energy economies, that will be mixed together to hopefully solve the loss of economically available fossil fuels.
