As I was leaving the petrol station, I ponder over the moment where I may have the chance to use an Electric Vehicle (EV). What will happen to the petrol station? Can they be converted to Electric charging?
This dilemma is a constant reminder of what change can bring. Though sustainability movement brings many benefits, there are awareness that we are never receptive to this change. Sustainability will bring about a disruptive nature to incumbent. There will also be high switching cost to consumers.
Unlike all new technologies, sustainability is driven by the thought of a dying Earth. There are a lot of political and huge forces resisting this efforts. The most well known is perhaps the withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement. It is very likely I will not see much drastic change in my lifetime. Of course, I do hope that the future generations can do better from the seed of sustainability.
