Re: If Brazil can do it, why can't we???

There are a lot of people who have historically been low users of energy who want the services energy provides... electricity and cars for a start. Even a small increase in their consumption will have huge impact on the world's energy demand. We really need to start addressing our own, yesterday.

The pressure of an aging population on our fiscal condition leads me to conclude that our population will increase from immigration. If we start managing our transportation and land use with the assumption that energy will be expensive from this time forward generations to come with appreciate it.
