Net Energy Analysis and Political Economy

US_crude_oil_production_1900_2035   This has been my principal website for many years and has most of my earlier work only some of which is worth reading  This has just been edited for general readership and to remove the excess verbiage coming from its origins in a blog.   This is where I say the most important things about sustainability – against all odds and in the face of strong opposition.   Sometimes my frustration shows.   This is a snapshot of the now-defunct, which was a practice shot to get into the Wikipedia.  I now have a better idea of what to say.  After all, dematerialism is a limiting case.  It is on the boundary of the space of all possible political and economic systems.  It should be in the Wikipedia and these are some of its principal characteristics.   This is where I write down anything new that occurs to me.  That includes new ways to explain the parts that few people understand.   This has a few documents that are found elsewhere.  It was my protest regarding the people who grabbed and don’t understand sustainability.   This stuff can be found elsewhere.  Someday, I’ll make it a “quick start” guide to dematerialism.  As it is, it is not a bad portal to my net energy work, namely, ERoEI star.
