Energy and Civilization

While WATER is known to be the absolute base of Civilization, Energy has proved to be the Main Proponent of Advancement of Civilization. The evolution of human societies is dependent on the conversion of energy for human use.

The widespread belief that energy and civilization are inextricably linked certainly has historical foundation. Throughout history, humans have focused on controlling the energy stores and flows that are part of nature. For tens of thousands of years, people relied solely on the chemical (caloric) energy gained from food that produced the mechanical (kinetic) energy of working muscles. But thanks to human intellect, people were able to unlock and overcome physical limits imposed on their own muscle power "by using tools and harnessing the energies outside their own bodies."

The transition of Human Society from Stone Age to modern Nuclear Age has seen progress of energy generation or sources in similar manner as exhibited underneath.
