Wants vs Needs

Much of our energy use masquerades as need. As oil runs out, everyone is going to have to drastically cut back on their energy use. Forget cars. Forget heated/cooled homes. Forget lighted rooms. You don’t like it? That’s irrelevant. If we haven’t developed an alternative, there will simply be no energy to squander.
