    It seems that the debate centers around the use of energy focusing on sources of energy and creation of alternative sources of energy. The claim is that alternative sources of energy will supply 40% of our needs. All the proposed solutions are very high cost and are crisis mode solutions. What if we conserved energy? What if, with some minor incremental expenses using known solutions already on the market and in use in other countries, we could reduce our use of energy by 20-50%. With such solutions, we would not be in crisis mode, we would not need massive investment. We would only need some common sense and good management.. There are programs we could copy from other countries with minor expenses and rational thinking that would reduce our level of energy waste and reduce the challenge described here. Yes, we will reach a time when we will need more energy. Yes, we will need new sources of energy. The level of the crisis and the cost of the solutions can be more manageable. We only need to learn to conseerve energy and not waste it as fragrently as we do today.
