Watch "Olympic Cyclist Vs. Toaster: Can He Power It?"

Energy is leverage.  Useable energy is man’s means of multiplying his own puny physical efforts well beyond what would otherwise be possible.

How puny? Well, how many Olympic cyclists does it take to toast a single slice of bread?

Energy production is essential to human civilisation. Real energy production.
