One of humanity’s most serious problems, climate change is clearly a ‘human-made’ catastrophe. Various factors have contributed to global warming now turning into reality. One of the most significant, along with power generation and industry, is of course CO2 omissions from transport using fossil fuels. While both technological progress and climate change are popular themes in literature, film, and the visual arts, the equivalent cultural obsession with these issues is both scary and paradoxical.

For humankind, energy production and consumption present a double-edged sword. On the one hand, we need energy to survive; on the other hand, the production of energy with current technology poses a threat to our very survival as it is not sustainable from a long-term perspective. The emerging, highly interdisciplinary field of energy humanities (Szeman and Boyer “The Rise of Energy Humanities”, 2014) responds to these concerns by viewing energy as a key factor in contemporary human (social, cultural, political) relations.
