What's ironic is both Mexico and Ethiopia are almost as energy resource rich as we are. Too bad their governments are too corrupt to ever bring those resources to fruition that could help their people out of poverty.

Thanks Conrad for the info. Question, since I live in America but am not American, do I use less energy?

Conrad,

That is because we buy a lot of gadgets and we keep them plugged in ready to go.  I would love to know what percentage of energy do we produce?  A

Somehow this ratio does not surprise me. We are not a very "economical" society as a whole.

So my estimate was high. I think I said 35%. 

Did you know I use to live off the grid? I did this for almost five years.  I had a well and used solar and wind power. My life has changed since then and so has technology. When I get rich and famous, I will go off the grid again, and help to cut that consumation number.

I knewit was about 25%. Maybe with our renewable energy programs we will bring that percentage down in the next decade.
