Assumptions about energy availability and affordability lurk in every discussion here, but very few of us bring them into view as a practice.  My friends, begin to make it a practice!  In the determination of what is worth changing, what is worth doing, we must share beliefs that there is energy for the effort and energy for the outcomes.  We can't get where we're going if the energy basis is inadequate or missing.

Please review what you know about energy, giving special attention to the safety and reliability (this combines accessibility and adequacy of supply) of each form and technology.  Which are best in terms of those alone?  Which are within everyone's reach, holding greatest potential for serving the 100%?

Let's talk.
