“It must always be remembered how cost-effectiveness works in the public sector: the cost IS the benefit.” - author unknown

By John P Holdren

BERKLE'Y. Calif. —The United States is threatened far more by the hazards of too much energy. too soon, than by the hazards of too little. too late

The hazards of too much. which have been as widely underestimated as the liabilities of too little have been exaggerated, include diverting financial resources from compelling social needs, making hasty commitments to unproved technologies. and generating environmental and social costs that harm human welfare more than the extra energy improves it.

Finally, less energy can mean more employment The energy-producing industries comprise the most capital-intensive and least labor-intensive major sector of the economy Accordingly. each dollar of investment capital taken out of energy production can invesled in something else, and each personal-consumption dollar saved by reduced energy use and spent elsewhere in thc economy. will create more jobs than are lost.
