This video was the best at answering the question of how Global Energy in "Ready Player One" evolved over time through the economical lens because it describes the exact progress of how "Ready Player One" has developed in its existence. Energy originally began with humans and the fuel of food. Though, civilization grew and technology further the evolution of our lifestyle. New inventions such as computers, automobiles, medicines, lights, etc. all began renovate the society. Global communications and network allowed the world to stay in touch with each other. However, nonrenewable resources came at a huge cost. In order to supply global civilization and society. people need to burn fossil fuels and there is no way to replenish the resources after it is exhausted. This "Global Energy Crisis" created side effects, alternating climate and weather, thus killing off plants/animal in paid speed, leaving society starving and homeless. The global solution was to initiate warfare in order to obtain the few resources each territory has. Economical standards has decelerated drastically to the point of a global third-world continents. Human civilization is in decline because many people are in OASIS, neglecting the complications in reality. Wade Watts has now obtain the fame, power, and wealth but with good intentions. In addition he has the option of closing out OASIS completely. In the future, if the time is right, OASIS will close out eventually as civilization will realize the necessity of re-cultivation in the society.
Off-Grid Energy Solutions is the position to be advocated on because it provides a cost-effective, consistent, and reliable supply of energy. Wade Watts now decides on the distributing food supply to everyone in the world and that could spark the starting factor of civilization again. With fuel (food), humans can provide energy by building off-grid energy technology. They can function without the help of government as the world could not use transportation like it used to. Off-grid energy solutions cleanses the environment since it does not exhibit pollution and filtered atmosphere to the climate. In due time, plants and animal population will began to grow and civilization as a whole can establish a stable society. This video supports the advocacy of off-grid energy solutions. it explains the benefits of living in a environment such as "Ready Player One" where as the community lives in "stacks." These "stacks" doesn't require much energy so an off-grid energy solution could accompany the issues of such dreadful communities.
In "Ready Player One" the government decides to go to war with other territories in order to obtain energy resources. There will be more of them and they will become more fears with time, that is partly because resources themselves are becoming more scarce, because population is growing, but also because global warming will make many of these resources more scarce and the effects will become more severe and things like water will start running out due to dry climates. Food for livestock is another example as in "Ready Player One", starvation was one of the two most essential needs for humanity. The government decides to create "stacks" communities where people live in deserted automobiles where they stack on top of each other, creating an apartment complex though it is quite dangerous. These "stacks" can collapse, killing tenants. The other thing that the government has done is providing proportional food vouchers. However, the government is exhausting even more energy resources because it is constantly going to war. Its effect on society is making them suffer through the means of greed. This video shows how exactly the government in "Ready Player One" has affect the global issue. Government builds technology but due to its ignorance, energy crisis stumbled upon the civilization and they are constantly fighting over territories, causing even more exhaustion in resources. Its impact on humanity will cause many deaths.
