Energy and the Economy
Energy consumption correlates almost perfectly with the growth of the economy, increases in life expectancy and the standard of living. There is a very short sighted movement afoot to discourage our use of energy. There is a revolution going on in Energy in the US which if allowed to flourish will usher in a new era of job opportunity and economic growth. It is so serious that German Industry is deeply concerned about falling behind the US.
We have to be smart and use our resources to build and advanced energy economy that can run 24/7/365 for larger populations with “sustainable abundance”.
