On July 12, 2012 I posted this video arguing that the assumption that GDP GROWTH needs to TRACK energy use growth is a misconception. Zero Hedge pundits, TAE Nicole Foss, Professor Charles Hall (darling of The Oil Drum), several diners and other energy experts out there have made the same FALSE  claim over and over. I posted this video on page six of the Waste Based society thread on the Doomstead Diner Forum. Go back and read what diners had to say, Find out how WRONG they were on subsequent page comments.

In the last year and a half, everything I claimed about energy and the cost effectiveness and GREATER EROEI of renewable energy over dirty energy has been proven right. Have a nice day.  ;)

Experimental Phycisist Amory Lovins is still at the Rocky Mountain Institute and still doing outstanding work.

Here's one of his recent videos. It FURTHER reinforces THE FACT THAT GDP growth does not have to track energy use!

A world-renowned energy expert, Amory Lovins, visits the forefront of Japan's energy shift to propose ways for its energy future. Lovins has been studying and visiting Japan since 1960s as he embarked on his profession. Lovins' message: Japan can lead the world in energy shift, if Japan realizes its potential for more energy efficiency and utilize its abundant renewable energy.
