Energy policy and accounting
(Remember the coming week is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity!)
This week, I received from the European Commission a book Energy Futures: The role of research and technological development (ISBN 92-79-01639-3; available at the EU Bookshop). It was disappointing, full of hot-air and bad PowerPoint-style figures. Some better books on this topic are Energy Beyond Oil by Paul Mobbs (ISBN 1-905237-00-6) and, from a more personal aspect, How We Can Save the Planet by Mayer Hillman and Tina Fawcett (ISBN 0-141-01692-2).
On that note: for the first time(!), I calculated from my electricity bill how much I am using. For the last half year or so, I used on average 11.52 MJ/d of electricity. This is about the same as the food-energy I am eating. Next, I will try to find out about my gas and water usage.
