I think I have this whole energy crisis thing solved. Partly anyway.
It all boils down to signage. Readable from your car signage.
I just went to my local convenience store to pick up something (can't remember - but it was important) and from where I parked I could not read their store hours sign. So I exited my still-running vehicle to go and tug on their door. Locked.
Peer down and see they closed half an hour ago.
So because I could not read their stupidly small sign, I wasted several precious grams of fuel as I walked up and checked. I know - I could have shut it off. In fact I could not - I had family with me who would have perished in the heat of the evening without air conditioning so there.
So multiply me times about a gazillion other people who drive up every day and waste fuel checking for legible store hours signs and look at what you've got. A global energy crisis that's what.
I am available for interviews on popular television news programs.
