Notes

Abstract: Developed nations grew rich in part through overexploiting natural resources, dumping greenhouse gases and other pollutants into the atmosphere and encouraging consumerist lifestyles with little concern for the long-term effects on the our collective home--Plant Earth. Today, these patterns are being replicated in developing nations. In particular, Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRICs) have a rising global middle class that desires to live an American lifestyle, complete with cars, refrigerators, air conditioners and other sources of pollution. Factors contributing to this global problem include inadequate responses to climate change, increases in global consumption, and dangerous dependency on non-renewable resources of energy. What is needed is a Green Energy Revolution for developed and developing countries. Specifically, the international community needs to collectively explore green, energy-efficient ways of living and producing that include (1) switching from the use of fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy alternatives and more efficient systems, and (2) closing the gap between rich and poor nations to alleviate poverty, especially with respect to energy-poverty in developing countries.
