we live in an energy based economy, not a money based economy.

thus all money is a token of energy exchange, so increased spending won’t do anything unless there is energy in the system to back it up. So ultimately, everything in our industrial/commercial system is an energy problem

i suggest you read Prof David Mackay’s book: Renewable energy without the hot air (It’s free to download btw)

Prof Mackay was on a different intellectual planet to the rest of us (he died in 2015)

“Renewables” deliver electricity. Electricity of itself is useless without the machinery to put it to work. That machinery is the product of fossil fuel driven industry
