Wasted, Wasted Energy: 2011 Edition

11 April 2011

One of the most read posts on this blog is my “Wasted, Wasted Energy” post from 2008 about a New York Times article about the amount of energy wasted in the US.  Well, Lawrence Livermore National Lab recently posted an update to their numbers on energy generation and energy waste in our country…and the numbers are just as shocking as ever. In 2009, more than 57% of the energy generated in the United States was wasted before it ever got a chance to be used.
