Energy Q&A: how important is it?• How much kerosene was burned to get  40 gallons per person in the me from DC to t e S US ( 500 mile)? e o C the SFUS (2500 e) plane• How long does a luggage handler  5 to 8 hours, as he is likely to have to load an unload bags before he use/produce between 125 Watt has spent 1 kW of physical energy? and 200 Watt• How many labor hours does a gallon  100 to 160 hours, or up to 4 of Kerosene represent if we assume a working weeks of physical labor 50% efficiency? ffi i ?• How many hours of energy “life  Every American has the support” does the average American equivalent of 275 “employees” get per year? t ? continuously working for him/her• What is the average energy efficiency  < 2% we reach in modern society? hi d i t ? 2
