Date: Sunday, August 17, 2008, 9:09 AM- I object to the phrase "the new panacea". It's too close to the idea of "the magic silver bullet".
- The weapon to defeat the world's energy problems is NOT a rifle. It's a two-barrel shotgun.
- - Natural gas is one of the birdshot in the shotgun shell in one barrel. Anything that's non-renewable is no better than small birdshot. The buckshot in the shell must be PV, wind, geothermal, tidal, etc.
- - Then there's the other barrel. The shell to be loaded in it is called "conservation" -- make your own list of ingredients. But do load it soon, and shoot it now!
- We are all Human beings here together. We have to help one another, since otherwise there is NO ONE who will help.
- All countries need NO REGRETS strategic policies regarding every non-renewable resource, including water.
- Plan ahead seven generations -- reduce all your consumption, and eliminate waste.
