IEEE Spectrum compares different energy sources Thanks to Kirk Sorenson at Thorium Energy discussion for pointing this out.

The world uses 1 cubic mile of oil per year now.

That is really depressing. It makes it look as if all the alternative energy technology is just tilting at windmills. I have always been impressed with the advancements and potential of new forms of renewable energy but maybe we should just live as high on the hog as long as we can until we are all hutbound primitives shuddering in the dark. At least the global warming will reduce the need for firewood.
