Energy - Elemental, but not Simple

IT TAKES ENERGY TO GET ENERGY

To maintain the average American at present comfort levels requires 21,600 lbs. of nonmetal resources such as sand, gravel and salt, 1,450 lbs. of metal substances and 18,600 lbs. of fossil fuels, plus a little less than one ounce of uranium each year. That amount of energy, near twice what the average European uses in a year, is the equivalent of each citizen having 300 slaves working 24 hours a day!
