The Alan Pears column

There is reason to believe the recent decline in energy consumption is not a one-off blip; while the draft Energy White Paper needs significant improvement.

It is good to ask if the recent decline in electricity consumption is a blip or a change (The Power of An Energy Blip – Climate Spectator, March 12, 2012). But we also have to ask whether the trend of the 2000s was a blip or a trend. And because our end-use data are appallingly bad, none of us really knows the answer.
