  • 13. 11/26/11 Facts to ConsiderBuildings consume 2/3 of all U.S. Electrical generation and contribute over1/3 of all greenhouse emissions.Oil companies are not planning to build new refineries because therearen t enough oil resources or discoveries to justify the investment.Hubberts curve predicted that U.S. oil production would peak in 1972 - itdid in 1970. The same analytical data predicts that global production willpeak between 2010 & 2015 irrespective of the recent finds in the deepwater of the Gulf of Mexico. Currently we consume two barrels for everynew barrel discovered.Saving or conserving energy or a valuable resource isalways cheaper and more economical than producingit.

  • 32. 11/26/11 A good planet is hard to find!When you look up into the sky tonight consider this: the earth is really aspaceship. Our ship is 8,000 miles in diameter, hurtling through space ata rate of 60,000 mph.All life and our entire store of natural resources are contained in a narrowband at the crust only a couple of miles deep, comparatively as thin as asheet of paper. This mantle of life is wrapped in a 5 mile thick layer ofatmosphere. On average the life giving topsoil is 6 thick. The Van Allenbelt protects us from solar and other celestial radiation.Solar energy is our ONLY TRULY RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCE and it takes 8min. 20 sec. to reach us from our nearest star - our SUN!This fragile pale blue dot is the house we all live in. 32
