Abstract

We stand on the edge of a new horizon in human history. The current modes of consumption, life style, energy use, and energy generation will soon no longer be viable. Our society must choose to adapt to this changing world or fall into the pages of history. This IQP studies the impact that Path dependence, Hubbert's curve, and Sustainability will have on this transition.
