After I began giving detailed energy talks to community groups (NY, PA, MD,
VA, WV, NC, etc.), I started getting requests to put on briefer presentations.
That’s what this is about.

The full version is also on Slideshare, with URL: EnergyPresentation.Info.

Sometimes we need to step back and reflect
   on how we got where we are today.

 Seeing things in perspective can help us
      make better decisions today.

Alternatively, those who do not learn from
     history, are doomed to repeat it.
We all know that a picture is worth a
thousand words: so few words here.
These photos will remind us that we’ve
made large advances from the past.
Progress is about moving forward.

Is there any sound reason
that we would want to revert to any of these?

               For instance...
Does refinishing the exterior
make this any less primitive?
Does “modernizing”
make this any less primitive?
Does adding design enhancements
  make this any less primitive?
Does souping it up
make this any less primitive?
Does making it bigger
make this any less primitive?
Likewise...
Progress is about genuinely moving forward —
        not whitewashing a failed idea.
Wind Energy:
— Very High Costs
— Miniscule Benefits
What about those who say
       something like:
“We need to do whatever we can,
  no matter what the cost”?
One thing we HAVE learned from the past is:
            Talk Is Cheap.
        Such people will be believable
         when they publicly endorse
     other comparable CO2 saving ideas,
   like the government mandating that:
1) 20%± of our commercial ships revert to
   sailing vessels, and
2) 20%± of our cars become horse-drawn
   vehicles.
As silly as they seem,
the interesting thing is that these mandates
  would actually save a lot of fossil fuel!

So, does that make them a good idea?
These parallel
what is happening in electric energy,

      where our government is
   (or is planning on) mandating
that utilities use 20%± wind power.
In these modern times,
with all our modern technology,
   and with all we’ve learned
         from the past...
     We Can Do a LOT Better!
