The stark reality of energy accounting implementation
The determination of the energy cost of products can only be done by a well equipped organization set up specifically for this purpose. Firstly the organization will need to have people who understand the objectives of energy accounting who can train others and the authority to oblige ALL producers to participate. It is obvious that without the total conscription program none of this can happen. Those who will be part of this organization will need to understand the BIG Picture. The objectives of energy accounting before they can come up with clever ways to get it happening so here are some pointers for them.
Problematic gaps in our current ability to calculate energy costs:
As any item moves along its route to the consumer energy gets added so working backwards may be the simplest way to arrive at a products energy cost. Right now few items are entirely produced at a single location or for that matter in a single country determining energy added costs for anything made off Continent is not possible. As the socially harmful and duplicate industries are phased out and new state of the art ones built this will be self correcting so we must just forget about it for now and deal with what we can.
Using what is already available
to calculate any items energy cost
Most products already have a unique bar code so by having a single online database for all products every time energy gets added to any product when the product is shipped onward the added amount could automatically be transmitted to the database where spread sheet programs will keep a running total. When the product moves on the amount of energy added at any location would be automatically sent in this amount need NOT include any transportation energy cost as the cost of moving stuff about would be part of our total Technate operating cost, namely the transportation sequence, which is deducted from the total energy converted in our entire Technate BEFORE our personal accounts are filled up with energy credits.
Another NON FACTOR:
That being human labor in the BIG PICTURE it no longer is, for the purposes of energy accounting, significant so it is to be ignored in any and all energy cost calculations. If you are disturbed or perturbed by this we suggest that you tune into a TV show “How it is made” it is time all citizens understand that the hand too era has passed.
As stated in the first paragraph only the implementation of the total conscription program can make this possible so come on people you must DEMAND IT and soon.
