Is our age of innovation actually an age of stagnation?
Human being is also used to see new developments and new ideas every day. When i speak with my grand mother about daily innovation she always finds it awesome because people from her generation were not used to see so many innovations so quickly. Our society goes faster and faster and we have already forget that 10 years ago internet was a prehistoric system compared to the one we have today. We cannot change the way of life every 10 years. It is perhaps one of the problem of the current global issues. Human being need stability and progress is essential but it has to come from a desire of change, of evolution. If we look at the world people are now more concerned on how not to change their way of life because the technology has increased the exchanges between the people but perhaps it misses something more deeply. We try to find a way to continue to consume the energy without buying fossil fuels, we try to find a way to keep the same climate (which is a great struggle). I really think our society has changed a lot during the last decades and now it needs some time to acclimate, stabilize and find new ways of development.

Can we expect emerging countries to curb their energy consumption, even though we had decades of flagrant use?
Emerging countries are no longer following western countries example. Brazil is developing ethanol, China is building solar and wind farms faster than every other country, Middle east countries are working on solar and nuclear.... It is not as much as a moral issue it is just a physical issue: there is not enough oil and gas for every country with the level of consumption of western countries. The sources to reduce consumption in western countries are obvious: car consumption (US cars should use European standard around 4 liters for 100 km), reduce houses consumption by optimizing the use of electricity and reduce the needs to warm houses.. This "revolution" needs big investment that are very costly and also Research and Development and smart and innovative proposals.
