ABSTRACT
The article discusses energy resources and its impact on society within the framework of anthropological studies, in response to a work by Tere Vadén and Antii Salminen about the correlation between energy and modernity. The author argues that Vadén and Salminen have failed to consider the dynamics of capitalism in their work. It is suggested that the empowerment of consumers against the use of fossil fiels should be the focus of any efforts to address climate change.
