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.
