At the Ekopol research group (ekopol.eus) we have published a new article to highlight among the scientific community the relevance of the degrowth of our energy consumption levels.
Historically, increasing energy consumption has improved people’s quality of life, but in recent years we have reached unsustainable levels of consumption. This has generated serious impacts on the ecosystem, on the least well-off people in society and even on future generations.
In this new research, for the first time it has been shown graphically that the degrowth strategy could make sense. But we have not yet been able to delve into the reasons for the existence of this WELL-BEING TURNING POINT, and so we hereby share these results with the scientific community.
