The industrial revolution was the beginning of a prosperity spurt. Water and windmills were replaced by (steam) machines and electricity , followed by computers and information technology. A revolution that has brought us advantages and conveniences. However, the disadvantage is that oil and coal are necessary in order to maintain the prosperity. And besides that these resources are scarce and cause emissions, in many cases they origin from areas you don´t want to be dependant on. How great it would be if we could feed our wealth with clean and energy present everywhere? I'm for it!
