I have to agree with Robert Waldrop and with the International Energy Agency. I don't subscribe to the creamy nougat theory. We live in a closed system with its non-renewable resources (and improperly managed renewable resources) subject to diminishing returns upon extraction. And looking at what our species does when energy is readily available, we'd all better hope peak oil comes soon.
