Why can't people even consider that we're going to have to change the way we live rather than just change what powers our devices?

I think most people genuinely can't imagine that being the solution and I can't blame them. Over the last few centuries, improvements in technology have directly solved a lot of problems for people. Okay, it also created a ton of problems, but seeing as the direct material conditions of people in the West improved, they didn't think about those problems too much.

Additionally, propaganda (in the broadest sense of the word) continues to promote a future which is pretty much the same as today, but "better" in some vague way.
