We cannot simply wait for our energy reserves to become depleted, nor can we count on
the arrival of a magic bullet to supply our ever growing energy needs. As you may know, I have long
been interested in Hydrogen fuel cell technology.
As a fuel, Hydrogen has the potential to work well in many energy storage and delivery applications, but does not hold the
key to our independence from fossil fuels. Hydrogen can store energy, but that energy must
be generated elsewhere. Solar, wind, and hydroelectric power generation
all have environmental issues. I am not alone in suggesting
that our efforts must focus on energy conservation. Efficient mass transportation is
critical in this endeavor. Insulating materials must be emphasized. Educating people
to change their energy use behavior is quite possibly the largest energy challenge facing the United
States today. As the world's population continues to grow exponentially, in combination with China
and India's rapid transition from third world living conditions we can only expect the already stressed world energy demands to become even more insatiable. This situation can only be made better if we do not continue to disregard the need
for energy conservation.
