A Picture Worth A Thousand Words

Over at the new NESEA blog, my friend Bill Stillinger just posted this amazing graphic, explaining that it is “from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, showing how most of our energy flows through our lives in the United States. Although not stated on the chart these data appear to be 2005 or 2006 vintage. The units of energy are enumerated in Quads, or trillions of BTUs. On the left side are our primary sources of energy; on the right are the principal categories of usage.”
