Is Growth Bad for Environment?
Growth isn’t as bad for the environment as we may think according to a survey conducted by The Economist. The article Environmental Enemy No. 1 lists three reasons for an energy revolution. First, because recycling and treating chemical waste is energy-intensive, alternative cleaner energy should be developed. The alarming green-house effect is a long-term problem requiring a low-carbon future. Human health is the third reason. The government must provide incentives for the development of clean energy innovations. Currently government subsidies encourage the use of fossil fuels.
