    U.S. Energy Addiction

    Science Anonymous writes: The 12 Steps

    The #1 concern of all Americans is the economy... The solution is simple: require all buildings to have an energy efficiency inspection each year, just like the safety inspection you get for the car. Building controls are the most profitable ventures for computer chip firms like Motorola. Promoting energy conservation will be a boon for the high tech industry. It won't cost buildings any money either ~ projects are paid off in a few years out of utility savings alone, after which time buildings enjoy a 20-50% reduction in utility bills. There are literally hundreds of good projects that are no-cost or low-cost that save a LOT of energy and are paid off in a year or less.


    Just check out the abridged edition of my textbook from McGraw-Hill, Retrofitting for Energy Conservation to see just how easy this "eXtreme technology" really is... The illustrations on this website are a real hoot + the first paragraph of each chapter excerpt will give you a whole new perspective on the construction industry...

    The #2 concern of Americans is jobs. Energy conservation will put people back to work - in good, high paying jobs. I'll do that right now, without any government regulations at all. I have a simple Excel spreadsheet that does official annual building heating and cooling calculations called The Energy Auditor (This is a self extracting zip file, size 114.7 Kb, that extracts to a file named energy.xls) A simple building is already input so you can play with the numbers right away to see how powerful the program is. All the tables you need are included; no engineering or construction experience is required. It only takes a couple of hours to figure everything out and to create professional quality results. The spreadsheet has almost 400 U.S. cities already input; so anybody in America can do a fast, accurate energy audit. It also has every U.S. military base overseas input, so service members can save energy too...

    Reducing energy use means the power grid won't have to be upgraded to avoid more blackouts; that'll save the $1 trillion that is needed to upgrade school buildings to just 1990 code standards. Reducing energy use means a better trade deficit, a healthier economy, energy independence, less Arab terrorism, lower long term interest rates, lower school and other taxes, lower inflation, a cleaner environment, higher corporate profits, higher wages, higher stock markets. Best of all, energy conservation means good, quality professional jobs all over the nation ~ when the only thing Washington can generate now are low paying jobs in the service industries...

    Building energy efficiency enforcement will bring the U.S. into compliance with the Global Warming Treaty and that will gratify our European allies whom we alienated by invading Iraq. The U.S. military is the single largest user of energy in the world. Conserving energy will free resources for operations in Iraq. It will also make energy more affordable for all the third world countries struggling to industrialize. America grew up on $5/barrel oil ~ third world nations now are trying to become prosperous on $50/barrel oil. They need our help and leadership. There are so many other positives that it's criminal that the government has not ever considered the idea, or that industry has consistently lobbied against it...

    "The #1 concern of all Americans is the economy... "

    Who says?

    "The solution is simple: require all buildings to have an energy efficiency inspection each year, just like the safety inspection you get for the car."

    Yes, for a fee and bigger government.

    "Building controls are the most profitable ventures for computer chip firms like Motorola. Promoting energy conservation will be a boon for the high tech industry. It won't cost buildings any money either ~ projects are paid off in a few years out of utility savings alone, after which time buildings enjoy a 20-50% reduction in utility bills."

    Buildings don't pay the bills either, people do.

    "There are literally hundreds of good projects that are no-cost or low-cost that save a LOT of energy and are paid off in a year or less."


    "Just check out the abridged edition of my textbook from McGraw-Hill, Retrofitting for Energy Conservation to see just how easy this "eXtreme technology" really is...

    And it will sell more of your books. I get enough advertising on the web.

    "The #2 concern of Americans is jobs."

    Who says?

    " Energy conservation will put people back to work - in good, high paying jobs."

    Who's paying for those jobs? The taxpayer.

    " I'll do that right now, without any government regulations at all.

    You forgot something, the population is still growing and electrical device usage is still on the rise.

    " that'll save the $1 trillion that is needed to upgrade school buildings to just 1990 code standards. Reducing energy use means a better trade deficit, a healthier economy, energy independence, less Arab terrorism, lower long term interest rates, lower school and other taxes, lower inflation, a cleaner environment, higher corporate profits, higher wages, higher stock markets.

    This is strictly a political message.

    "Building energy efficiency enforcement will bring the U.S. into compliance with the Global Warming Treaty and that will gratify our European allies whom we alienated by invading Iraq. The U.S. military is the single largest user of energy in the world. Conserving energy will free resources for operations in Iraq.

    It's almost criminal they allow politically motivated B.S. on this site.

    Josh,

    Does someone have to have all of the truth to be in possession of some of it? This is an alt-energy site, with emphasis on energy. It is not enough to just find or discover the energy sources, it is also imperative to "get them to the ground", and effeciencies are a critical part of this.

    I think most people who know would agree that we in the U.S. are one of the most energy-wasteful societies in the world. It doesn't have to be that way, though, as most of the waste is through laziness, sloppiness, or apathy. I believe that this is the point. A little awareness goes a long way.

    Also, politics are part and parcel of life. People who say that they are not political just aren't any good at it!
