    “If the energy profit ratio falls by a factor of ten, gross production must rise by a factor ten just for the energy available to society to remain the same.” Umm…no. Two examples will illustrate.
    1) Energy profit decreases from 1000:1 to 100:1. The energy required to obtain 1000 units for society goes from 1001 to 1010.
    2) Energy profit decreases from 20:1 to 2:1. The energy required to obtain 1000 units for society goes from 1053 to 2000.
