Unzerstörbar: Die Energie und ihre Geschichte (German by Ernst Peter Fischer

By Ernst Peter Fischer

Unzerstörbar – mit diesem Ausdruck lässt sich am besten beschreiben, used to be das Wesen der Energie ausmacht, um deren Verfügbarkeit sich in jüngster Zeit immer mehr Menschen Sorgen machen und bemühen, und dies ist auch dringend nötig. Das Schicksal moderner Zivilisationen und ihrer Kultur hängt von der zuverlässigen und bezahlbaren Zufuhr an Energie ab. Sie tritt seit dem frühen 19. Jahrhundert in shape fossiler Brennstoffe in das Leben von Menschen ein, was once aber in Zukunft nicht aufrechterhalten werden kann und eine Neuorientierung erfordert, die derzeit als Energiewende probiert wird. In Ernst Peter Fischers neuem Buch wird die Ansicht vertreten und ausgeführt, dass die Energie in aller Munde ist, weil sie zwei Seiten zeigt – auf der einen die Fähigkeit zur realen Arbeit, die Maschinen übernehmen, und auf der anderen die romantisch zu verstehende Möglichkeit, die es jedem Menschen erlaubt, sein Leben kreativ zu entwerfen. Menschen brauchen beide Formen der Energie, die physikalische und die romantische. Ein Glück, dass sie unzerstörbar ist, wie es der Satz von ihrer Erhaltung verspricht.
