Nationmaster.com gives energy use per capita; I presume it is total. It gives
10 kW for Americans; Italy uses more than a third of that, 18th on the list.
I suspect a lot of the lower figures is denser living and nicer climates, but
hey, look at the hands. Normally I assume 10 kW in these botecs because I'd
like everyone to live as well as Americans and also it's a nice round number.
