Ronald Stein, P.E., Energy Consultant on Energy Literacy, Ambassador for Energy & Infrastructure, Co-author of the Pulitzer Prize nominated book “Clean Energy Exploitations”, policy advisor on energy literacy for The Heartland Institute, and The Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, and National TV Commentator- Energy & Infrastructure with Rick Amato.
Ronald Stein, P.E. is an engineer, energy consultant, speaker, author of books and articles on energy, environmental policy, and human rights, and Founder of PTS Advance, a California based company.
Ron advocates that energy literacy starts with the knowledge that renewable energy is only intermittent electricity generated from unreliable breezes and sunshine, as wind turbines and solar panels cannot manufacture anything for the 8 billion on this planet.
A sampling of recent articles may be viewed at:
World leaders continue experiencing a “dangerous delusion” of a global transition to “just electricity” that that they believe will eliminate the use of the oil derivatives manufactured from raw crude oil that made society achieve so much in a few centuries.
As most know, wind turbines and solar panels only generate occasional electricity, but manufacture nothing for humanity.
The elephant in the room that no one wants to discuss is that crude oil is the foundation of our materialistic society as it is the basis of all products and fuels demanded by the 8 billion on this planet.
• Crude oil derivatives manufactured from raw crude oil are the basis of our materialistic society!
• All the components and equipment for the generation of electricity by wind, solar, coal, natural gas, nuclear, and hydro are all made from the oil derivatives manufactured from crude oil !
• The world populated from 1 to 8 billion in less than 200 years, after human ingenuity discovered how to refine oil derivatives from crude oil that are now the basis of our materialistic society.
• Ridding the world of raw crude oil before we have a replacement to produce the oil derivatives currently manufactured from crude oil, we’re back to the 1800’s, and it could be the greatest threat to the lives of billions of the world’s population that did not exist before those oil derivatives began supporting more than 6,000 products for society.

Ronald Stein, Policy advisor on Energy Literacy
The inventions of the automobile, airplane, and the use of petroleum in the early 1900’s led us into the Industrial Revolution and victories in World War I and II. The ‘aha moment’ for every green advocate is that intermittent electricity from wind or solar cannot produce any of the more than 6,000 products manufactured from petroleum derivatives that did not exist before 1900, that are the basis of daily lifestyles and economies worldwide.
Energy LiteracyHeartland Institute
Ronald Stein, Policy Adviser to Heartland on Energy Literacy
To educate the public to be more energy literate. Energy is more than just intermittent electricity from wind and solar. Energy and electricity include thousands of products made from petroleum derivatives that “makes things and moves products,” and the various fuels required by every transportation infrastructure for prosperous societies. Energy literacy will enhance one’s comprehension that the cost of energy affects everything, from the food we eat, the clothes we wear, transportation, communications, housing, healthcare, and the leisurely living made possible by energy.
