The exact global energy conservation laws for the full and truncated versions of the nonlinear electromagnetic gyrokinetic equations in general magnetic geometry are presented. In each version, the relation between polarization and magnetization effects in the gyrokinetic Poisson and Ampère equations and the quadratic ponderomotive gyrocenter Hamiltonian is emphasized.
