#1. But we were talking about economics?" John said. "But this is economics, don't you see, this is our eco-economics! Everyone should make their living, so to speak, based on a calculation of their real contribution to the human ecology. Everyone can increase their ecological efficiency by efforts to reduce how many kilocalories they use - this is the old Southern argument against the energy consumption of the Northern industrial nations. There was a real ecologic basis to that objection, because no matter how much the industrial nations produced, in the larger equation they could not be as efficient as the South." "They were predators on the South," John said. - Author: Kim Stanley Robinson
Energy Consumption quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#2. When coal came into the picture, it took about 50 or 60 years to displace timber. Then, crude oil was found, and it took 60, 70 years, and then natural gas. So it takes 100 years or more for some new breakthrough in energy to become the dominant source. Most people have difficulty coming to grips with the sheer enormity of energy consumption. - Author: Rex Tillerson
Energy Consumption quotes by Rex Tillerson
#3. An aggressive building performance standard for all new buildings, and a set of performance requirements to be met by all buildings before they can be sold (when upgrades can be included in the new mortgage). These should encompass heating and cooling, lighting, and plug loads. Coupled with new efficiency standards for appliances, lights, and furnaces, this should reduce the energy consumption of new buildings by 50 percent, more or less immediately, and go on from there. - Author: Denis Hayes
Energy Consumption quotes by Denis Hayes
#4. In year 1500, there were about 500 million Homo Sapiens in the entire world. Today, there are 7 billion. The total value of goods and services produced by humankind in the year 1500 is estimated at $250 billion, in today's dollars. Nowadays the value of a year of human production is close to $60 trillion. In 1500 humanity consumed about 13 trillion calories of energy per day. Today, we consume 1,500 trillion calories a day. (Take a second look at those figures -- human population has increased fourteen-fold, production 240-fold, and energy consumption 115-fold.) - Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Energy Consumption quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#5. As the United States chains itself down with greater debt, China is building relationships across the globe to bolster its trade, its access to natural resources, and its energy consumption. In far too many cases, this means lost opportunities for America and our businesses. - Author: Reince Priebus
Energy Consumption quotes by Reince Priebus
#6. Present annual world energy consumption is about equal to the annihilation energy of 4 tons of matter. - Author: Barney Oliver
Energy Consumption quotes by Barney Oliver
#7. Unsustainable energy consumption has humanity locked into a death spiral with nature. - Author: Steven Magee
Energy Consumption quotes by Steven Magee
#8. Why are oil prices so low? First, energy consumption growth rates in developing markets have decreased. This is particularly noticeable in China. Second, new technologies are being developed and the shale gas revolution in the USA has taken place - Author: Kenneth Rogoff
Energy Consumption quotes by Kenneth Rogoff
#9. Only one rational path is open to us - simultaneous de-development of the [overdeveloped countries] and semi-development of the underdeveloped countries (UDCs), in order to approach a decent and ecologically sustainable standard of living for all in between. By de-development we mean lower per-capita energy consumption, fewer gadgets, and the abolition of planned obsolescence. - Author: John Holdren
Energy Consumption quotes by John Holdren
#10. Is the minor convenience of allowing the present generation the luxury of doubling its energy consumption every 10 years worth the major hazard of exposing the next 20,000 generations to this lethal waste? - Author: David R. Brower
Energy Consumption quotes by David R. Brower
#11. Your brain is the "greediest" organ in the body; the resting brain uses oxygen and glucose at 10 times the rate of the rest of the body. Thus, even though the brain makes up less than 2.5 percent of total body weight, it is responsible for 20 percent of the body's energy consumption. - Author: Patricia Wolfe
Energy Consumption quotes by Patricia Wolfe
#12. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the Earth. It is cosmically unlikely that the developed world will choose to end its orgy of fossil energy consumption, and the Third World its suicidal consumption of landscape. Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along. - Author: David Graeber
Energy Consumption quotes by David Graeber
#13. All I know about thermal pollution is that if we continue our present rate of growth in electrical energy consumption it will simply take, by the year 2000, all our freshwater streams to cool the generators and reactors. - Author: David R. Brower
Energy Consumption quotes by David R. Brower
#14. We do not fully understand the consequences of rising populations and increasing energy consumption on the interwoven fabric of atmosphere, water, land and life. - Author: Martin Rees
Energy Consumption quotes by Martin Rees
#15. Speaking biologically, fruit in a slightly shriveled state is holding its respiration and energy consumption down to the lowest possible level. It is like a person in meditation: his metabolism, respiration, and calorie consumption reach an extremely low level. Even if he fasts, the energy within the body will be conserved. In the same way, when mandarin oranges grow wrinkled, when fruit shrivels, when vegetables wilt, they are in the state that will preserve their food value for the longest possible time. - Author: Masanobu Fukuoka
Energy Consumption quotes by Masanobu Fukuoka
#16. Far from being a drag on growth, making our energy sources more sustainable, our energy consumption more efficient, and our economy more resilient to energy price shocks - those things are a vital part of the growth and wealth that we need - Author: David Cameron
Energy Consumption quotes by David Cameron
#17. Shortly after Sisi was elected, his administration announced cuts of 'subsidies' on natural gas and energy consumption and lowered those for bread and other goods. Such action was taboo during the Mubarak and Sadat presidencies for over half a century, but Sisi was able to convince Egyptians he was taking necessary action. - Author: Ahmed Zewail
Energy Consumption quotes by Ahmed Zewail
#18. I believe that the average guy in the street will give up a great deal, if he really understands the cost of not giving it up. In fact, we may find that, while we're drastically cutting our energy consumption, we're actually raising our standard of living. - Author: David R. Brower
Energy Consumption quotes by David R. Brower
#19. When it comes to climate and energy, Gates is a radical consumerist. In his view, energy consumption is good - it just needs to be clean energy. - Author: Jeff Goodell
Energy Consumption quotes by Jeff Goodell
#20. A low-energy policy allows for a wide choice of life-styles and cultures. If, on the other hand, a society opts for high energy consumption, its social relations must be dictated by technocracy and will be equally degrading whether labeled capitalist or socialist. - Author: Ivan Illich
Energy Consumption quotes by Ivan Illich
#21. James Russell offers a timely and compelling blueprint for a realistic transformation of America's energy consumption by refusing to fall victim to conventional thinking. Accessible?pragmatic even?Russell's proposals speak to goals on the immediate horizon and underscore the role that intelligent design can play now in America. On a longer horizon, his analysis points to a range of issues about land use, transportation, and coordination of public and private investments to which the design professions have an enormous contribution to make. Here design and policy find common ground. - Author: Barry Bergdoll
Energy Consumption quotes by Barry Bergdoll
#22. This heated (environmental) debate is fundamentally about numbers. How much energy could each source deliver, at what economic and social cost, and with what risks? But actual numbers are rarely mentioned. In public debates, people just say "Nuclear is a money pit" or "We have a huge amount of wave and wind." The trouble with this sort of language is that it's not sufficient to know that something is huge: we need to know how the one "huge" compares with another "huge," namely our huge energy consumption. To make this comparison, we need numbers, not adjectives. - Author: David Mackay
Energy Consumption quotes by David Mackay
#23. President [Bush] believes that [high-energy consumption] is an American way of life, and that it should be the goal of policymakers to protect the American way of life. The American way of life is a blessed one. - Author: Ari Fleischer
Energy Consumption quotes by Ari Fleischer
#24. The Texas Energy Office's Loan Star Program has reduced building energy consumption and taxpayers' energy costs through the efficient operation of public buildings, saving taxpayers more than $172 million through energy efficiency projects. - Author: Rosa DeLauro
Energy Consumption quotes by Rosa DeLauro
#25. China leads the world in energy consumption, carbon emissions, and the release of major air and water pollutants, and the environmental impact is felt both regionally and globally. - Author: Ma Jun
Energy Consumption quotes by Ma Jun
#26. Energy consumption matters both to our environment and our economy. - Author: John Baldacci
Energy Consumption quotes by John Baldacci
#27. Many supervisors will tell you what they want are people with energy, initiative, and imagination, but in reality, they feel threatened by people who have different views from theirs, and thus discourage or diminish those who carry bad news or make mistakes. Those who expect to harness the power and muscle of stallions must be self-confident, open-minded, intellectually honest, and also humble. - Author: Lim Siong Guan
Energy Consumption quotes by Lim Siong Guan
#28. We have the power those who came before us have given us, to move beyond the place where they were standing. We have the trees, and water, and sun, and our children. Malcolm X does not live in the dry texts of his words as we read them; he lives in the energy we generate and use to move along the visions we share with him. We are making the future as well as bonding to survive the enormous pressures of the present, and that is what it means to be a part of history. - Author: Audre Lorde
Energy Consumption quotes by Audre Lorde
#29. She felt exhausted: her energy first spent wanting so sorely to return and then accepting the loss as final. As her old life in Okara was fast becoming just a story to be told, she too was becoming irrelevant, like an out-of-use currency, or an old train route, defunct. Her body became slightly bent over and the folds of her skin began to hang loose, like they had lost interest in life. And all like a misunderstanding, like someone your own, someone very close, had tricked you, surreptitiously moved the very roof from over your head. - Author: Sakoon Singh
Energy Consumption quotes by Sakoon Singh
#30. She probably thinks the spiritual path is a new style of pavers available at Bunnings. - Author: Pj Mayhem
Energy Consumption quotes by Pj Mayhem
#31. Live in such a way that you embody true peace, that you can be peace in every moment of your daily life. It is possible for everyone to generate the energy of peace in every step. - Author: Nhat Hanh
Energy Consumption quotes by Nhat Hanh
#32. [N]early every creationist debater will mention the second law of thermodynamics and argue that complex systems like the earth and life cannot evolve, because the second law seems to say that everything in nature is running down and losing energy, not getting more complex. But that's NOT what the second law says; every creationist has heard this but refuses to acknowledge it. The second law only applies to closed systems, like a sealed jar of heated gases that gradually cools down and loses energy. But the earth is not a closed system
it constantly gets new energy from the sun, and this (through photosynthesis) is what powers life and makes it possible for life to become more complex and evolve. It seems odd that the creationists continue to misuse the second law of thermodynamics when they have been corrected over and over again, but the reason is simple: it sounds impressive to their audience with limited science education, and if a snow job works, you stay with it. - Author: Donald R. Prothero
Energy Consumption quotes by Donald R. Prothero
#33. A modern person has no energy to love any other time than his own. - Author: Torgny Lindgren
Energy Consumption quotes by Torgny Lindgren
#34. Pain was nothing but resistance; resistance to the God energy caused by fear. Without fear and resistance, death would simply be a transition to another dimension. - Author: Shirley MacLaine
Energy Consumption quotes by Shirley MacLaine
#35. When you're at peace with your life and in a state of tranquility, you actually send out a vibration of energy that impacts all living creatures, including plants, animals and even babies. - Author: Wayne Dyer
Energy Consumption quotes by Wayne Dyer
#36. Nothing could exceed his energy when the working fit was upon him: but now and again a reaction would seize him, and for days on end he would lie upon the sofa in the sitting- room, hardly uttering a word or moving a muscle from morning to night. On these occasions I have noticed such a dreamy, vacant expression in his eyes, that I might have suspected him of being addicted to the use of some narcotic, had not the temperance and cleanliness of his whole life forbidden such a notion. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Energy Consumption quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#37. But knowledge does not protect one. Life is contemptuous of knowledge; it forces it to sit in the anterooms, to wait outside. Passion, energy, lies: these are what life admires. - Author: James Salter
Energy Consumption quotes by James Salter
#38. Research from the HeartMath Institute ( shows that when you have a feeling in your heart, it goes to every cell in the body, then outward - and other people up to 10 feet away can sense feelings transmitted by your heart. This means that each day you are broadcasting to your team how you feel. You are either broadcasting positive energy or negative energy, apathy or passion, indifference or purpose. - Author: Jon Gordon
Energy Consumption quotes by Jon Gordon
#39. Have you read Gaboriau's works?" I asked.
"Does Lecoq come up to your idea of a detective?"
Sherlock Holmes sniffed sardonically. "Lecoq
was a miserable bungler," he said, in an angry
voice; "he had only one thing to recommend him, and that was his energy. That book made me positively ill. The question was how to identify an unknown prisoner. I could have done it in twenty four hours. Lecoq took six months or so. It might be made a text-book for detectives to teach them what to avoid. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Energy Consumption quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#40. Use your anger for good. Anger to people is like gas to the automobile - it fuels you to move forward and get to a better place. Without it, we would not be motivated to rise to a challenge. It is an energy that compels us to define what is just and unjust. - Author: Arun Gandhi
Energy Consumption quotes by Arun Gandhi
#41. It is indeed curious that engagement in paid work should represent such a powerful symbol of maturity and independence, given the realities of employment as a situation of profound dependency. I speak not only of the dependency inherent in the wage relation, but also of the dependency on commercial products and services, which become the only way to meet certain needs after work has drained our time and energy. [ch.six] - Author: David Frayne
Energy Consumption quotes by David Frayne
#42. I care. I care about it all. It takes too much energy NOT to care ... the WHY of why we are here is an intrigue for adolescents; the HOW is what must command the living. Which is why I have lately become an insurgent again. - Author: Lorraine Hansberry
Energy Consumption quotes by Lorraine Hansberry
#43. Feel, my children, feel; feel for the poor, the ignorant, the downtrodden; feel till the heart stops and the brain reels and you think you will go mad; then pour the soul out at the feet of the Lord, and then will come power, help and indomitable energy. - Author: Swami Vivekananda
Energy Consumption quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#44. If we invest in researching and developing energy technology, we'll do some real good in the long run, rather than just making ourselves feel good today. But climate change is not the only challenge of the 21st century, and for many other global problems we have low-cost, durable solutions. - Author: Bjorn Lomborg
Energy Consumption quotes by Bjorn Lomborg
#45. The only country where you see any positive movement within domestic consumption is Brazil, where you really do have a variety of coffees to make blends with. - Author: Robert Nelson
Energy Consumption quotes by Robert Nelson
#46. I don't believe that one has to tear down the cinema screen in order to renew cinema. But new input and new energy are lacking. They are flowing above all into the television technologies. We must, therefore, concentrate on the CD-ROM. - Author: Peter Greenaway
Energy Consumption quotes by Peter Greenaway
#47. The creators were not selfless. It is the whole secret of their power - that it was self-sufficient, self-motivated, self-generated. A first cause, a fount of energy, a life force, a Prime Mover. The creator served nothing and no one. He lived for himself. - Author: Ayn Rand
Energy Consumption quotes by Ayn Rand
#48. Pregnant
and birthing mothers are elemental forces, in the same sense that
gravity, thunderstorms, earthquakes, and hurricanes are elemental
forces. In order to understand the laws of their energy flow, you have
to love and respect them for their magnificence at the same time that
you study them with the accuracy of a true scientist. - Author: Ina May Gaskin
Energy Consumption quotes by Ina May Gaskin
#49. Until I understand where I am, I can't get to where I am going. This is the value of a compass when we are out walking or hiking and need to know we're going in the right direction. But we also have an internal North Star. It's that little nudge that tells us if we are on the right path to fulfilling our potential, or on the wrong path wasting energy traveling somewhere we don't need to go. So my advice to you is, pull out that compass every once in a while and make sure you are navigating in the right direction on your journey. - Author: John C. Maxwell
Energy Consumption quotes by John C. Maxwell
#50. Speed showering. Speed shaving. Speed dressing. Then it hit me. What a waste of energy. It was all for nothing. I was going to miss that meeting no matter what I did. I could be on the platform right now, waiting for the PATH train, and it would still be a no-go. I could be on the train, heading out of the station, and it still wouldn't work. So I took a minute for four or five gulps of too-hot coffee, which had already brewed on a timer. I wanted to call Sturgis and tell him I'd be late and I was sorry. But by then it was almost 8:35 a.m., and I thought it would be worse to interrupt his meeting. Crap. Crap. Crap. This was the worst. The absolute worst. The worst possible thing that could have happened to me. The job meant more to me than anything, than my own life, than the world. Why did I keep screwing up like this? - Author: Catherine Ryan Hyde
Energy Consumption quotes by Catherine Ryan Hyde
#51. If you emit positive energy, even people who don't like you will not be negative when around you. - Author: Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
Energy Consumption quotes by Innocent Mwatsikesimbe
#52. Whilst in Pipalyatjara, I learnt that the Pitjantjara people were trying to have their land turned from leasehold to freehold. The attitude of the elders at first had been to dismiss the whole question. As far as they were concerned they didn't own the land, the land owned them. Their belief was that the earth was traversed in the dream-time by ancestral beings who had supernatural energy and power. These beings were biologically different from contemporary man, some being a synthesis of man and animal, plant, or forces such as fire or water... - Author: Robyn Davidson
Energy Consumption quotes by Robyn Davidson
#53. You have come to Cambridge to study the interdependence of matter and energy. Please remember that energy and matter are in no way something distinct from yourselves. Remember, too, that scientists are not dispassionate. Your judgement and your ability to do good work will be in part dependent on your digestion, your prejudices and above all, your emotional life. You must face the fact that if another human being, whose welfare means considerably more to you than your own, behaves in a very different way from anything you had expected, then your efficiency may be impaired. When the heart is breaking, it is nothing but an absurd illusion to think you can taste the blood. Still I repeat, your efficiency may be impaired. - Author: Penelope Fitzgerald
Energy Consumption quotes by Penelope Fitzgerald
#54. Cooking is just as creative and imaginative an activity as drawing, or wood carving, or music. And cooking draws upon your every talent
science, mathematics, energy, history, experience
and the more experience you have, the less likely are your experiments to end in drivel and disaster. The more you know, the more you can create. - Author: Julia Child
Energy Consumption quotes by Julia Child
#55. A power struggle collapses when you withdraw your energy from it. Power struggles become uninteresting to you when you change your intention from winning to learning about yourself. - Author: Gary Zukav
Energy Consumption quotes by Gary Zukav
#56. This decline of literacy is accompanied by a rise in philistinism in America: a preference for the skillfully marketed and packaged product for the consumption of the mass man - the Top Ten on TV, NFL telecasts with the quite well-done Miller Lite and Mean Joe Green commercials - plus a few big commercial novels, whether the Harold Robbins novel in which sex figures second only to money, the Barbara Cartland novel in which sex becomes something called romance, or the Judy Blume novel in which teenagers are introduced to sex like Tarzan and Jane. - Author: Walker Percy
Energy Consumption quotes by Walker Percy
#57. If you want to become a better listener, however you need to learn to direct that energy and attention positively by concentrating on the person you're with. - Author: John C. Maxwell
Energy Consumption quotes by John C. Maxwell
#58. Consider the enormity of the problem. Science has proved that the universe exploded into being at a certain moment. It asks: What cause produced this effect? Who or what put the matter or energy into the universe? And science cannot answer these questions, because, according to the astronomers, in the first moments of its existence the Universe was compressed to an extraordinary degree, and consumed by the heat of a fire beyond human imagination. The shock of that instant must have destroyed every particle of evidence that could have yielded a clue to the cause of the great explosion. - Author: Robert Jastrow
Energy Consumption quotes by Robert Jastrow
#59. Say goodbye to this energy of fear that kept you safe but small. - Author: Panache Desai
Energy Consumption quotes by Panache Desai
#60. Without perceiving things through the old filter of past conditioning and conceptualization, one can sense the universe is intensely alive. Even so-called inanimate objects - I often pick up little objects and just look at them and sense that they are alive. Physicists actually confirm that what we perceive as dead matter is not dead at all. Everything is an intensely alive energy field. That aliveness is only an aspect of the aliveness or life that I am. - Author: Eckhart Tolle
Energy Consumption quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#61. Live stage is being made as you go along. You feel the energy. There's nothing like a live audience. - Author: Ben Vereen
Energy Consumption quotes by Ben Vereen
#62. We cannot control our children. We can only create the conditions for them to rise. What this means is that we need to stop expending our energy on trying to control who they are and how they turn out in the future. The real challenge is to keep our eyes on the parameters that are truly under our control - ourselves, and the way the home functions. - Author: Shefali Tsabary
Energy Consumption quotes by Shefali Tsabary
#63. I am staring into eyes so dark and compelling that I feel as if I could easily lose myself within them. He moves me slightly away from his body but doesn't let go. Energy, just like in the forest a few nights ago, ebbs and flows betwen us. - Author: Jennifer Sucevic
Energy Consumption quotes by Jennifer Sucevic
#64. Since the outbreak of war, there has been in our country a steady increase in the consumption of spirits, wine and beer. It is estimated that in dollar volume, the annual outlay is now practically double what it was before the war. - Author: William Lyon Mackenzie King
Energy Consumption quotes by William Lyon Mackenzie King
#65. If you become more sensitive to beauty, to poetry, that means your love has blossomed. And all the energy that has been left by fear, anger and hate, will be taken over by your love, your sensitivity, your compassion, your creativity. This is the whole alchemy of changing base metals into gold. - Author: Rajneesh
Energy Consumption quotes by Rajneesh
#66. I mean, if all we are is bundles of energy... what is a 'hug' anyway?... and how can we ever really touch each other? - Author: Chris Ware
Energy Consumption quotes by Chris Ware
#67. All faults or defects, from the slightest misconduct to the most flagitious crime, Pantocyclus attributed to some deviation from perfect Regularity in the bodily figure, caused perhaps (if not congenital) by some collision in a crowd; by neglect to take exercise, or by taking too much of it; or even by a sudden change of temperature, resulting in a shrinkage or expansion in some too susceptible part of the frame. Therefore, concluded that illustrious Philosopher, neither good conduct nor bad conduct is a fit subject, in any sober estimation, for either praise or blame. For why should you praise, for example, the integrity of a Square who faithfully defends the interests of his client, when you ought in reality rather to admire the exact precision of his right angles? Or again, why blame a lying, thievish Isosceles when you ought rather to deplore the incurable inequality of his sides?

Theoretically, this doctrine is unquestionable; but it has practical drawbacks. In dealing with an Isosceles, if a rascal pleads that he cannot help stealing because of his unevenness, you reply that for that very reason, because he cannot help being a nuisance to his neighbours, you, the Magistrate, cannot help sentencing him to be consumed - and there's an end of the matter. But in little domestic difficulties, where the penalty of consumption, or death, is out of the question, this theory of Configuration sometimes comes in awkwardly; and I must confess that occasionally when one o - Author: Edwin A. Abbott
Energy Consumption quotes by Edwin A. Abbott
#68. The underconsumptionist of 1819 believed that consumption would be stimulated by tariffs, while the underconsumptionist of a later day urged monetary expansion as the remedy. On the other hand, the remedy proposed for the shortage of money capital was monetary inflation in 1819, encouragement of savings and thrift in the 1930s. - Author: Murray Rothbard
Energy Consumption quotes by Murray Rothbard
#69. We're made up of energy, so who's to say you can't transmit through electrical means? If you could transmit yourself wirelessly, then it's Armageddon pretty much. - Author: Ian Somerhalder
Energy Consumption quotes by Ian Somerhalder
#70. She was full of some strange energy that morning. Her every movement had purpose and life and she seemed to find satisfaction in every little thing. - Author: Anna Godbersen
Energy Consumption quotes by Anna Godbersen
#71. Joy is what we all seek. It is an energy more powerful than food. But without love we can not feel true joy. - Author: Akiane Kramarik
Energy Consumption quotes by Akiane Kramarik
#72. Most men spend the energy of their lives trying to eliminate risk, or squeezing it down to a more manageable size. - Author: John Eldredge
Energy Consumption quotes by John Eldredge
#73. To be successful, you need to mobilize the energy of many others in your organization. If you do the right things, then your vision, your expertise, and your drive can propel you forward and serve as seed crystals. - Author: Michael D. Watkins
Energy Consumption quotes by Michael D. Watkins
