Issues 2004 - Energy (continued)
My dad, who is way smarter about stuff like this than I am, pointed out in an email to me that the second law of thermodynamics is a bitch and that its going to be hard and expensive to replace what we get from carbon-based fuels with something else anytime soon.
But my new mantra on this topic is really simple - wind, water, and sun. We need to spend the money to make those resources deliver the energy we need. Why? Because they aren't likely to be depleted.
