When President Obama took office three years ago, he put climate change at the top of the agenda. However, to have climate change policy you need an energy policy. People confuse the two — you need both for sustainable development.

We will never have an energy policy as long as politicians are in charge.

We need a clean energy policy to hasten the growth of sustainability. Projections are for buildings to produce as much energy as they consume in 2035 resulting in a net zero drain on energy resources.

Interesting article, thanks for the post. It's scary that Bloomberg does not mention speculators when indicating the $140/barrel oil price was merely a warning a few years ago.

No economy or county has every grown and gotten healthier and more prosperous by limiting or conserving the amount of energy it uses. The concept is an oxymoron if there ever was one. Energy is needed to produce goods and services and to CONSUME (use) those goods and services.
