Help busting the myth of Bitcoin’s energy problem. Recommend sources for paper.

You most certainly came across the argument of Bitcoin being too inefficient to become a reliable payment system due to the amount of energy it needs compared to credit cards etc. Unfortunately, this view is as persistent as it is uninformed and the scientific community has done relatively little to debunk this myth. This is part of the reason why I’m currently working on a paper comparing the energy consumption of payments using Bitcoin to payment methods like PayPal, Visa, MasterCard or bank transactions. As with any publication, the more sources you can cite the better. Is there any article, video or paper you can recommend?
Please feel free to post any source you have on the topic of sustainability of Bitcoin. Of course, if you have some figures on how much energy credit card companies or banks waste it will help as well.
Based on various paradigm shifts in how mining is done and how transactions are processed (moving from CPUs to GPUs/ASICs and the introduction of Lightning) I want to try to give a rough estimate of Bitcoin’s future energy needs on a per transaction basis. What are your favorite sites or services tracking the changes of kWh/transaction over time or number of transaction/time in general?
EDIT 1 - I realize that the post sounds quite pro-crypto. Forgive my wording. Please, if you have figures showing centralized payment networks being superior and more efficient then feel free to post them as well. In fact, they are much more valuable since they might include data from sources that were ignored up until now. The goal is to collect as many sources as possible. That's the best way to get a clear and concise picture of the situation.
EDIT 2 - Please note that I’m very interested in any post on sustainability related to any of the altcoins as well. The argument of sustainability is something exclusively put forward against Bitcoins. Sooner or later every blockchain application hat to counter that argument. In fact, when it comes to solving the question of how to reduce energy consumption of crypto currencies it is most likely that it is a another altcoin rather than a centralized payment network that comes up with a solution.
