Upon studying the opinion piece within the San Francisco Chronicle penned by Steve Westly, we’re reminded of Brandolini’s Regulation, which we paraphrase right here: “The quantity of vitality wanted to refute misinformation is an order of magnitude bigger than is required to provide it.” With a purpose to stop losing our personal or our readers’ time, we’ll rebut the claims made by Mr. Westly as succinctly as attainable, relying upon the huge cannon of public knowledge and writing that already exists about Bitcoin and vitality. His claims are usually not new, they’re grossly deceptive, and so they have been refuted advert infinitum.
