Thought of the day....

Yet there's good news in the McKinsey study, which is packed with data, analysis, graphics and recommendations. Americans are already becoming more efficient, the study says:
"Since 1980, energy consumption per unit of floor space has decreased 11 percent in residential and 21 percent in commercial sectors, while industrial energy consumption per real dollar of GDP output has decreased 41 percent."
All of this without government intervention. Probably, when the government gets its fingers in this, innovation and investment will be directly towards the singular solution as they deem to be the 'best' solution and we will probably see the natural trends towards efficiency that are embedded in a free society to cease.

From here.
