1), to about 50 GO. , energy use per capita doubled again to around 100 GO; the increasing use of animals required more energy-intensive feeding, and the preparation of more reﬁned foods required greater energy. About 2,000 years ago the world’s population was about 250 million and was probably using energy at an average rate that was only 20% greater than the per capita use in the Fertile Crescent 5,000 years earlier. 027 CMO/yr. Perhaps one-third of that energy use took the form of food for domesticated animals.
However, instead of debate, all too often we have encountered name-calling that ends the debate: names such as deniers or industry-stooges for those opposing the idea of human-activity-induced climate change, and believers or yellow scientists— that’s supposed to be a play on yellow journalism—for the proponents of that idea. We cannot resolve those controversies here, but we want to acknowledge their existence. Nor do we suggest that we debate these issues until they are completely resolved, because that would be advocating inaction.
While technological advancements and innovations are seriously needed, we note that unless we are also willing to make some attitudinal changes, the goal of living on sustainable energy is likely to elude us. In part III, we discuss the role that increased efﬁciency and conservation can play in mitigating the crisis. These offer the quickest means to avert the impending crisis for a period of a few decades, during which time we must gear up our income resources. In part III we also offer suggestions for planning and implementation of “new” approaches to resolving our energy dilemma.
