Another important ene rgy concept is efficiency.� For the hunter-gatherers who cooked food over the campfire, the energy was used with an efficiency of less than 5% (the energy that benefited the user, such as cooking the food, warming the air, providing light, etc.). �When humans began using hearths as they became more sedentary, their energy efficiency increased.� As humans built dwellings and fireplaces, energy efficiency increased, and today, energy efficiency in advanced industrialized civilization reaches more than 35%.� As humans kept increasing their gross energy input and the efficiency in using the energy, the energy surplus increased .� Just as with all life forms, an increased energy surplus meant an easier life and a better chance of survival. [862] � In recent years, while the USA�s GDP-per-capita has risen, its energy-consumption-per-capita has been stagnant since the 1970s .� Some have argued that it shows how much more efficient the USA�s economy has become, but it is more likely related to the USA�s de-industrialization, as heavy industry has moved to low-wage nations with weak environmental laws. [863] � The USA imports more finished goods in which the energy for mining and manufacturing them was used in other nations, like the imperial subsidy that the British received from their colonies, but far more pronounced when the USA is receiving finished industrial goods and not raw materials, as the British received from India.� In generating energy, so-called technological societies have nearly the same energy efficiency as advanced industrial ones, largely due to the entropy created by power generation .� The rise in e nergy use, particularly fossil fuel use, has been highly dramatic during the Industrial Revolution.� Today�s global hydrocarbon use has increased 800-fold since 1750, and 12-fold during the 20th century, and about 90% of the 20th century�s increase happened after World War II. [864] � The seven billion barrels of oil burned by the entire world during World War II is equal to what the USA burned in 2010. [865] � When the English began to invade North America, they stumbled into Earth�s richest continent.� An English �settler� in North America in 1670 consumed as much energy as a person today does in Uruguay and more than in about half of today�s nations.� Between 1880 and 1920, American energy consumption per capita doubled, and between World War II and 1970 it nearly doubled again, as Americans became the richest and most powerful people in world history.
