Scale of civilization's energy usage. The Earth is nowhere near tapping all of its available energy resources.

Kardashev Scale = 1 means that people on Earth are using all the energy that comes from the sun.

Type = 2 means we harness all the energy of a star, such as the Sun. We would need to encircle the sun, such as a swarm of orbits like the Dyson Sphere
