The Russians Are Coming
Toward energy efficiency. According to a post today at Forbes.com (http://bit.ly/cNfrFc), based on data from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Russia uses seven times as much energy per unit of GNP as other western European nations. No surprise then that Russian leadership has embarked on a move toward greater energy efficiency, if only to remain competitive in the global economy.
I wonder if Russia will spawn an energy efficiency oligarch, big yacht and all.
