 +At our general meeting on Tuesday, October 8, we heard a presentation from Jack Kerfoot, speaking on “U. S. Energy Trends”. ​

 +Jack Kerfoot is scientist, energy expert and author of the book **“FUELING AMERICA, An Insider’s Journey.”** He has spent over forty years in the energy industry working with scientists, bureaucrats,​ ministers, sheikhs and potentates on energy projects around the world. Jack is the principal of JL Kerfoot Energy Services and has been on numerous national radio and television talk shows to discuss energy issues in America and around the world. He blogs at “Our Energy Conundrum” at http://​www.jackkerfoot.

 +Presentation:​ U.S. Energy Trends
 +
 +The presentation discusses the driving forces and trends for each of the major energy sources (oil & gas, coal, nuclear & renewable energy). It provides multiple reasons (climate change, air quality, economics, rapidly declining supplies of all fossil fuels) for America to rapidly move to renewable energy. ​
 +
 +The presentation shows that wind, solar & hydro are now cheaper than any form of fossil fuel and that it is imperative we look to increase the support for renewable energy, using multiple, irrefutable facts. ​
 +
 +Transportation is now the largest source of greenhouse gases in America. The last few slides show that a transportation revolution is taking place in America and around the world. In Jack’s opinion, 2025 will be the tipping point when more people in America will buy new EVs than internal combustion engines.
