The world is full of energy

The twit:
EIA estimates US energy consumption will INCREASE by 44% in next 20 yrs. We MUST utilize our local energy sources.

Oh, totally. Either that, or, you know, maybe rein in our energy consumption a little.

Oh, please. Heaven forfend!

I have this thing with the word "utilize." It makes me cringe. It's one of those words that betrays people as crappy writers.

Thank God you're following her twittage so that I don't have to! You're doing the world a real service here. said...

I would like to point out that if you built a zero point energy perpetual motion engine using magnets you could avoid many of the pitfalls you may be alluding to vis a vis world energy consumption.

An important lesson to utilize...!
