Energy Efficiency

A good read from the Guardian. I remember as a kid during the Energy Crisis in the 1970s people quickly switched from Gas Guzzlers to small cars and became interested in alternate energy. Here we are, a half a century later in more or less the same place. But things are really different this time. Some good quotes in this one. One of the best:

“Solar and wind are now the cheapest bulk power sources in 91% of the world, and the UN’s International Energy Agency (IEA) expects renewables to generate 90% of all new power in the coming years. The energy revolution has happened. Sorry if you missed it,” he says.
