Developing an Energy Policy for the United States
Keefe, Pat
Physics Teacher, v52 n9 p552 Dec 2014
Al Bartlett's video "Arithmetic, Population, and Energy" spells out many of the complex issues related to energy use in our society. Bartlett makes the point that basic arithmetic is the fundamental obstacle preventing us from being able to grasp the relationships between energy consumption, population, and lifestyles. In an earlier version of Bartlett's video, he refers to a "Hagar the Horrible" comic strip in which Hagar asks the critical question, "Good…Now can anybody here count?"
