Too Long; Didn't Read

<em>Since the first industrial revolution of the 19th century, the consumption of our sources of energy has been tremendously growing. </em><strong><em>For over a century we exploited non-renewable sources</em></strong><em> such as fossils fuels, coal or petroleum. But in 1956, </em><a href="https://www.britannica.com/topic/peak-oil-theory" target="_blank"><em>Marion King Hubbert published his Peak Oil Theory</em></a><em> that sounded like a wake-up call and lead to an active environmentalist movement, </em><strong><em>increasing awareness towards climate negative effects</em></strong><em> and big pollution rates as a consequence of this utilization of multiple non-renewable sources of energy. </em><a href="http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2017/07/climate-change-earth-too-hot-for-humans.html?gtm=bottom&amp;gtm=top" target="_blank"><em>As global warming rises as a concern</em></a><em> and with an </em><a href="https://climate.nasa.gov/effects/" target="_blank"><em>estimate rise in temperature of 1.4 C° to 5.5 C</em></a><em>° over the next century, </em><strong><em>never before we have been looking for sustainable, clean and reusable source of energy</em></strong><em>. The impact of climate change is gaining momentum much faster than expected, while the shift from fossil fuels to cleaner energy is slow. Hopefully, </em><strong><em>innovations are being implemented</em></strong><em> to smoothtly and intelligently achieve this transition.</em>
