How Electricity Is Changing, Country by Country

interesting read with charts and free beer.

Nice to see the US at the top of the heap and China (much to my China espousing friends chagrin, I'd guess) not so much.


What if the hokey pokey really is what it’s all about?

I’m surprised Brazil is ahead of the USA in clean energy.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Very interesting read, thanks for posting.

I was trying to see how the Brazilian sugar cane ethanol was included, but here's a great wiki on it:

I thought someone came across a 440KVA line.

That was close.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Looks like Poland should be renamed Coaland.

It's important to note some of those graphs, for example the one with the US, EU, UK, and AU, that the US ~330 million creates/uses more power than the other 3 combined, with a population of ~540 million; and that the US fossil fuel usage per capita is something like 2x.

And that's just measuring power generation. When you add in passenger and commercial transportation... the picture isn't so rosy, there's a lot more work to do.
