US energy use chart shows we waste more than half of our energy

This flow chart of the estimated US energy use in 2009,  assembled by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), paints a  pretty sobering picture of our energy situation. To begin with, it  shows that more than half (58%) of the total energy produced in the US  is wasted due to inefficiencies, such as waste heat from power plants,  vehicles, and light bulbs. In other words, the US has an energy  efficiency of 42%. And, despite the numerous reports of progress in  solar, wind, and geothermal energy, those three energy sources combined  provide just 1.2% of our total energy production. The vast majority of  our energy still comes from petroleum (37%), natural gas (25%), and coal  (21%).
