Document Summary

Chapter 6: energy use: amount of e being used = increasing, little blip of decreased in 2008 due to economic depression. Canada is not very efficient at producing wealth with the energy produced. This is probably because these countries are geographically large and that energy is required to move products around. Energy intensity: see peaks of ei in different time periods, correlate with lot of e being used to create time when a infrastructure later creates wealth, gdp, etc, energy use increasing even though energy intensity decreasing. A lot of deaths associated with coal-burning for energy production (from coal mining). Chernobyl was the only fuckup for nuclear (which was terrible) Fossil fuel formation: usual decomposition process halted due to water, organisms trapped & compressed as sediments moved on top, lignin mineralized over millions of years of heart + pressure turned into coal, animals end up as oil. Coal: abundant in many parts of the world.
