Why we face energy crisis?

    If energy can neither be created nor it can be destroyed, then why do we face energy crisis?

      There is no energy crisis.. what is there is greed which make it seems as if there is an energy crisis so as to enslave all into a particular way of thinking...

      But then the crowd has already bought into their deceit...so therefore the "energy crisis" will remain.

    "If energy can neither be created nor it can be destroyed, then why do we face energy crisis?" Maybe you mean the atom.
    Light a match and you've created energy.

      I mean it by thermodynamics law of conservation of enegy - Energy can neither be created nor it can be destroyed, but it can be transferred from one form to another.

    We really face an oil crisis.  The oil produces our energy which we all have an insatiable appetite for that liquid gold.  There is solar energy but then, who would make oil companies richer if we utilized solar energy?

    Because not all forms of energy can be harnessed to power electronics, cars, etc.

    In the case of something like crude oil, you convert a type of energy that can be used by humans into a type of energy that can't. Because oil takes millions of years to form, it is essentially non-renewable, ergo every gallon you burn is one less gallon you'll be able to use in the future and you'll eventually run out and have an energy crisis on your hands.

      Thank you for this brilliant answer

    The problem is not technical. The problem is political and a mass social issue.
    Capitalism is destroying the planet.

    Read about the laws of thermodynamics.

    Law no. 2 is the tricky one. It says that the entropy of a given system can only increase. Thermal energy can not be converted to other forms of energy without loss.
    Actually law no 2. is the one that allows life and creation of life in an open system. It is also explains that perpetuum mobiles are not possible.

    In other words, it always takes more energy to create order than to destroy order. Our open system planet earth accumulated lots of energy from the sun over millions of years. Planet earth invested part of that sun energy to convert energy into oil, coal. If you burn coal or oil in an engine to produce f.e. electricity, that process can not be reversed, more precise it can not be reversed without investing additional energy.

    And that should explain why we are always loosing thermal energy and will eventually face a shortage of accumulated energy in form of oil or coal.

    Energy crisis on the long run can only be avoided by harvesting energy directly from the sun (renewable energy, photovoltaic, wind...)
