  •  Name one period of economic growth (0+ / 0-)

    any period of economic growth that energy consumption went down.  One.

    Because the moment people replace those drafty windows with energy efficient ones, they take the money they saved and buy something else (which takes energy to produce).  They don't bury the money in the backyard.

    Sorry to break it to you, but that is the way it works.

    The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
