  1. Reminds me of the tables in the book by Pimental: Food, Energy and Society.

    Have you seen those Kay? He compiled various input/output analyses from the literature. Fascinating comparisons!

  2. No, unfortunately not. I can see why you brought up the subject of inputs vs. outputs, however.
