I've been translating this article, Science and Technology for Sustainable Well-Being. Some parts are rather difficult for me to understand. Could any of you be kind to let me know the meaning and put it into another easy sentence? Thanks in advance!
Although these are daunting numbers from the standpoint of sustainability, the problem is not that the world is running out of energy. It isn't. But it is running out of cheap and easy oil and gas, and it is running out of environmental capacity to absorb, without intolerable consequences, the impact of mobilizing these quantities of energy in the ways we have been accustomed to doing it.
