ABSTRACT
Energy is a pre-requisite for the civilization. However, usage of energy is not free of toll. Rising temperature by 0.44°C during the last thirty years and 13% rise in atmospheric CO2 concentration surely indicating us to make a quick transition from this harmful usage of energy to a safer one. If global warming, melting of polar ice, rise in sea level and consequent flooding of coastal areas continues like present manner, then millions of lives would be in danger and hundreds of thousands would be turned into climate refugee. It is not impossible to secure human race from danger in the long run. However, it involves with long-term planning, innovative idea generation and common people awareness. In this paper authors discussed about the pattern of problem aroused from conventional energy usage, the future threat from this and its ultimate solution. We present three possible scenarios of using different sources to meet energy requirements with respective credibility and possible impacts in order to find out the best-fitted solution for future energy security and ensure sustainable development.
