I bought the paper version yesterday as I had to get the train to London. But it is online as well:

http://www.americanscientist.org/issues/feature/2011/3/global-energy-the-latest-infatuations/1

I sort of agree with much of what he says, but can't help thinking he is being really negative.
Probably a result of living in the US??

Vaclav Smil - Distinguished Professor, Faculty of the Environment, University of Manitoba

Sorry the article is in American Scientist??

For some reason I thought I had bought Scientific American!

Didn't know there were two similar magazines.

Link is correct though.

BTW I think my confusion is because Vaclav focuses a lot on US consumption.
I do recomend reading the article, despite my errors!
