The ethics of a speech should be to tell the truth. The truth of the global energy situation is: Our world faces a turning point. We are about to cross the borderline of the present global energy system: The liquid oil and the natural gas resources – that is 60% of the present commercial energy supplies and demands are running out. Proposals to extend the life time of the fossil energy system by using so-called non conventional fossil energies will lead to tremendous price progressions and will definitely overburden the ecosphere.
