Food and Energy Are Historically Important 

Throughout the long history of man, food and energy are the primary drivers of human economy.  A human economy that transitioned from tribal to empire, is now transitioning from empire to the planetary era.  This is a time of many dangers, but also great hope for the future.  From context.org ..
Rough paraphrase of the hundreds of hours of information on context.org is that we truly are at an unprecedented time in human history.  The Age of Empire is ending, the transition to the Planetary Era beginning.  The end of empire is characterized by resource contention among great "empires'.  The beginning of the planetary era is characterized by people learning to cooperate in practically real time across nation-state boundaries.
