      The environmental impact of the energy industry is has been harnessed by human beings for millennia. Initially it was with the use of fire for light, heat, cooking and for safety, and its use can be traced back at least million years. In recent years there has been a trend towards the increased commercialization of various renewable energy sources.   Economic growth in a given country makes the environment worse until it reaches the peak of the Kuznets Curve, at which point people are making a decent living. Now they can afford to think about reducing growth, and that nation has a more advanced technology available to reduce the impact of economic growth on the environment.

      Energy and the Environment, 3rdEditionexamines several critical topics of global importance associated with our increasing use of resource consumption and its impact on our environment. Author, Jeffrey Brack, provides updated information on pivotal issues that surround the study of energy through the exploration of basic concepts, resources applications, and problems of current interest. In my new book, Endangered Economies: How the Neglect of Nature is Threatening Our Prosperity, I argue that we can fix each of the most egregious flaws in the system to correct our neglect of nature and allow the economy and the environment to coexist and nurture one .

      His energy saving measurs could do a little comabt a sudden new economic crisis Explain why support for the environmental movement grew in the s. Through the energy crisis, Americans learned that their natural resources were limited; they could no longer take the environment for granted. Various legislation governs environmental concerns in the U.S., including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) which was first introduced in This act mandates the preparation of Environmental Assessments and Environmental Impact Statements to try and limit the environmental damage of development.
