The Problem With Energy Efficiency – NYTimes.com

The problem confronting human beings?  Progress and development have both progressive and regressive consequences.

  1. To the extent that these consequences are progressive and most are advantaged,  environmental footprints increase because more people are able to share in modern conveniences.  This leads to Malthusian dilemmas involving resource depletion, pollution and life-style excesses .
  2. To the extent that progress and development  is regressive and diminishes well-paid employments, Malthusian problems are diminished.

Which outcome will carry the day?  Which outcome does it make sense to hope for?
