Re: Burns:: Friday Fanaticism

A little less than 10% or the world's population? Try a lot less.

Current world population: roughly 6,237 million. Current US population 286 million. That's 4.5% of the world population. Less than 1/20th.

US energy use last time I heard was nearer 28 or 29%.

So we have 1/20th of the world's population using between 1/4 and 1/3 of the world's energy.

Re: Depends on what your definition of

Unfortunately, as the technology stands right now... it takes huge amounts of oil to produce modest amounts of hydrogen....

oops.

Re: Burns:: Friday Fanaticism

I have heard a republican polititian, (fairly sure it was **** Cheney), make this exact point. "We mustn't let oil prices get too high because then we might make alternative energy sources competative" - no really. I was amazed. He said it in the run up to the last election. Just came out and said it.

Remember my worry that maybe pipes and slippers were on the way?

HA! You are definitely not Dave DeSpain.
