MOST people in this world have absolutely no concept of where the energy that drives the entirety of modern life comes from. Even less is understood about the relative energy content and energy density of different sources.
Grade School, Middle School, and High School curriculae must include extensive and detailed coverage of all related issues. Where does gasoline come from? Where does electricity come from? What are the geopolitical pressures created by resource extraction and refining? The list of important issues goes on and on and on.
The fact of the matter is that these issues are bound up in everything we do, every day. It is shocking to me naive and uninformed most people are about that fact.
This must change if the world is to be changed.
