The energy transition has to be now or never: there is no more time to waste. Armaroli exposes the latest data and facts and the solution is clear and possible. But we have to act now if we want to save our planet and our own existence.
Energy is fundamental for every action we can image: we use energy 24/7. Without energy there could be no life. So why do we still use an “old” energy which is about to run out and endangers our planet? It is time to change, and it would be such a beautiful and advantageous change that we will not regret it. Try to believe it!
