energy efficiency & economics

Started by: AuntyM



Description:

just wanting to share this paper i wrote a few years ago about getting back to basics in a way that can cut out a lot of fat in the economy.

cheap fossil fuels have allowed people to do things that are energy-intensive to achieve their basic goals. now that the situation is changing, and soon radically, it's more efficient to do things very differently, rather than doing the same, fuel-intensive, things differently.
