Why this Blog? Why Now? We are faced with a decision. Either we will develop low-cost, abundant energy that is conducive to economic growth, or we will choose high-cost energy that will inhibit economic growth in order to cut CO2 emissions.The articles in the blog and on this web site are designed to provide people with factual information about energy issues so they are better prepared to make this decision.
Collectively, we will make this decision by selecting leaders for our communities and government who will enact the laws and regulations that will either promote low-cost, abundant energy, or, instead, insist on high-cost energy to cut CO2 emissions.This information should also help when judging other government actions affecting energy policy.
Background These articles purposely differentiate between oil and electricity. While, in a fundamental sense all energy is interchangeable, a BTU is a BTU etc., we actually have two separate delivery systems. These systems are like two, isolated silos, with virtually no interconnection.One system is for generating and distributing electricity, the other is for producing and using oil for transportation.This is an important distinction, since actions, such as using wind to generate electricity, do not currently affect our supply or use of oil. Conversely, only 1% of our electricity is generated using oil, and much of this is in Hawaii where there are few options.
