New Energy Blog: "Do the Math"

Here is a physicist writing in an interesting way about energy conservation. His attitude is "BTUs are precious".

"[I]n the end, the motivation as to why we go without heat is itself sustaining: we simultaneously have a smaller impact on the world—living more within our collective means, and we are conditioning ourselves to be tougher so that we will more easily adapt to potentially harsher situations in the future."
I like where he is coming from. Not an unscientific or treehugger place. Rather, we have very limited information about what the world's energy resources will be like in 20 years. Seriously - what would the confidence interval for a $/BTU (in 2012 dollars even) be in 2030?
