"More for Less": Andrew McAfee's book explains how modernity can survive adjusting to climate change
Today, on CNN’s Global Public Square, Fareed Zakaria interviewed Andrew McAfee, author of “More for Less: The Surprising Story of How We Learned to Prosper Using Fewer Resources – and What Happens Next”, 352 pages, from Scribner, publisher link.
The author points out that we are producing much more wealth with fewer resources, and that our need for energy consumption has plateaued.
Zakaria had started the interview by noting that today’s young adult generation wonders if it will be called upon to demonstrate the “personal virtue of restraint”, and give up flying, driving alone, air conditioning, and hot showers, and especially meat.
