There seems to be a new article every day amount Bitcoins energy consumption, like https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56012952 for example.
Im sure this has been discussed many times here, but what are peoples thoughts about this?
Will this problem not become bigger and bigger as the network grows?
What are the possible solutions to decreasing the energy use?
For crypto as a whole its not a big threat, with PoS and other solutions that doesnt require insane amount of computing power. But is it a realistic long term threat to Bitcoin?
edit: this isnt to spread FUD, or to impose some morale about what we doing are destroying the planet. I just want a discussion, and get the perspective of other people on the matter.
