I like statistics. I liked them on the back of baseball cards when I was a kid. I like them as produced by organizations such as the US Energy Information Administration and Canada's Energy Resource Conservation Board (ERCB) today.
The US Energy Information Agency has released its "early outlook", with production and consumption forecasts out to 2035. It shows an increase in energy consumption for energy from all sources, including oil, gas, coal, nuclear and renewables. It also indicates an increase in CO2 of 8% over the period.
