DN Column - Efficiency is More than Half the Battle
Lot's of sources for this one. Thanks to Fox for making it so easy (and too tempting for my own good) to refute the critics. Thanks to the EIA (specifically their electricity and environment sections) for providing the data necessary for the math. The idea came from yet another report on the subject brought to my attention by the folks over at Grist and for links to the McKinsey report. Finally, Climate Progress for links to the Northwest Power report. I'm sure there are others, but I've forgotten them already. Anyway, just remember, this blog is made of 0's and 1's, so please do your best to use less binary code. It's up to us to act for efficiency!
