Welcome to the Age of Extreme Energy. As the world’s energy appetite continues to grow, and conventional sources of oil and gas are depleted, industries are turning to riskier and more destructive ways of producing electricity and fuel: offshore drilling for oil, extracting oil from the tar sands, hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, surface mining for coal, and nuclear energy.

All of these forms of extreme energy pose a risk to the Earth’s precious water resources and waste enormous amounts of H2O. 
Extreme energy is touted as a path to energy independence; in reality, it is a path to ecocide and climate catastrophe. Instead of staking our future on false solutions, we need to transition to more sustainable ways of life and renewable energy sources.
