124. No, you misunderstand, as usual

Only you would define "Global energy usage" from a chart that says "Global energy usage in successively increasing detail (2005)<2><3>" as meaning something completely different. You twist yourself into a pretzel trying to prove your point.

I can see now where you would get the 2% number. Don't you think that people already thought about that? That maybe they calculated these numbers on the basis of what comes out of the reactor and not what could come out of the reactor? Why make your calculations so much harder by adding in thermal efficiency?

No of course you don't, because you are so much smarter then they.
