The US is 2nd in the use of geothermal power, and as for dependency risk making the US “more vulnerable” – the per capita petroleum importation figures don’t bear that out either.

Which brings us to the meaningful part of the Economist feature article which belies the bigoted goofiness of the cover: the fact remains that India and China are developing. Their consumption of energy will rise and level out for one simple reason, the larger your GDP, the less energy you need per unit of GNP.

Meanwhile testy critics usually have a reason for their bilious nature, and freeriders will find it easier to criticize than to act.
