Tom Friedman Starting to Shift

I enjoy Tom Friedman’s articles and books but I don’t always agree with his assertions and conclusions. Today, writing in the aftermath of the recent Copenhagen conference, he’s starting to re-think reasons why the world needs to move on.

Even if the world never warms another degree, population is projected to rise from 6.7 billion to 9 billion between now and 2050, and more and more of those people will want to live like Americans. In this world, demand for clean power and energy efficient cars and buildings will go through the roof.
We need more, not less, energy.
