You have been drink the "Cool Aid" too much....
Below some interesting points; one is and English written article, so ignore some of the terms.. Cold hard Truth below!!
The number of automobiles in China has shot past the 100 million mark. And it is expected to double within the next decade given that some 50 million cars were registered in the country from 2006 to 2010 alone.
As of last month, the total number of registered vehicles amounted to 140 million in the country of 1.35 billion, Chinese media reported on Sunday citing transportation authorities.
Automobiles are increasing at a rate of 50,000 a day in China, posing socioeconomic problems for the country and becoming a global headache, as it is rapidly emerging as a black hole sucking up much of the world’s energy.
As of last year, daily oil consumption in China amounted to 9 million barrels, edging past 10 percent of global consumption. The International Energy Agency said in its report on the 2011 global energy forecast, which was issued last month, that China would replace the U.S. as the world’s largest oil importer by 2020.
More interesting Facts!!!
For example, the energy contained in one barrel of oil represents the equivalent of 25,000 hours of human labour – that's equivalent to 12 people working 40 hours a week for an entire year. A barrel of oil costs roughly $74 – which at an exchange rate of £1:$1.45 is about £51. The human labour equivalent to the energy in that barrel of oil, even assuming a low rate of pay such as £5.80/hour (minimum wage), would cost £145,000 – or about $210,250/barrel! In other words, 99.97% of the equivalent labour value of oil is “free”, and so our use of energy can be seen as constituting the labour of many energy slaves20 who serve our needs.
Long and strong!!
Wind power my friends. That's the answer. Place a wind turbine on the desk of every politician and we will have more than enough electricity to recharge those Volts. Problem solved...you are most welcome.
