Synopsis: Global Energy is a rapid, ever-rising river that we have not been able to control.____ This handbook describes the flow of global energy, from initial production to its end-use. Everything is explained in a consistent set of easy to understand energy units - the BTU.____ This handbook will show why the conventional wisdom for solving our energy problems has not been working. Conservation and efficiency have not been able to keep up with the ever increasing global demand for energy.____ You will understand why alternative energy sources have limitations that go beyond technology. Solar, wind, geothermal - they can't do nearly as much to solve our energy problems as we would like to think.____ You will begin to question everything you read and hear about global energy, asking yourself, "Even if everyone actually did this, how much energy would be saved at the global level?"____ John has long considered himself to be an environmentalist, albeit a pragmatic one, who always asks, "What does this mean at the global level, how much will this really save?" Answering this question led to the writing of the handbook.____ He worked for over forty years in aerospace engineering since graduating from San Jose State University. During his career the considerations of power, energy and system costs were everyday issues. He is now retired, but is working part-time in systems cost modeling and analyses.
