Another assumption that MUST go: increased energy consumption

Today, I was reading an article about the environmental impact of mining. And in that article, the author said the following:

As today, any future society will have similar or even bigger needs for water, food, and energy, and hence, the availability of these resources has to be ensured to future generations.

This is exactly the assumption that we must destroy. Future societies must use less water and energy. Of course, not less water for drinking: but less water for manufacturing, golf courses, and watering lawns.

Furthermore, we must use less energy. We need to have a goal not just of reducing carbon but reducing energy use.
