We Need an Energy Breakthrough

I haven't yet read The Quest by Daniel Yergin -- only this review. But it's nice to know that someone who has spent a career studying energy issues agrees with my conclusions. We need a breakthrough in energy technology. The environmental burden caused by fossil fuels is too great for us to rely on that source as we try to elevate the standard of living for the world's populations.

Hans Rosling did a great talk for TED about energy and the developing world. I'd highly recommend checking it out as it seems he's reached the same conclusion about the combination of energy reduction and technological breakthroughs.
