Increasingly we are spending a higher percentage of the energy we get in the extraction of that energy. That’s not sustainable in the long run and it’s certainly not a good economic strategy.
The only way the ‘tar sands’ extraction can make money right now is by suckering in investors who think there is going to be a big payday down the road. But most of the money being made is in luring in investors.
What would you suggest? I am not being funny.
You are talking about windmills? High EROEI for wind is BS. Forget EROEI and look at price per kWh with and without subsidies and gas, oil and coal all win hands down.
