Keep Your Eyes On The Prize, It’s Always and Ever About Energy

“…75% of all fossil fuel energy has been consumed in just the past 50 years. … The mistake is to think that those past 50 years are just the new normal and the even bigger mistake is to overlook the central and essential role of fossil fuel energy in creating the world we see around us.

“Fossil fuels provide 80% of all our current energy. That’s a whopping high percentage and the hundreds of quadrillions of BTUs represented by that number will not be easily or cheaply replaced by any combination of alternative energies that we currently could deploy. In fact, there are exactly zero credible plans for completely replacing fossil fuels to be found anywhere in the world. Everybody has the same plan; continue obtaining the majority of their energy needs from fossil fuels while growing their economies.”
