Climate change: How increasing energy consumption in the short term could bring benefits

The path to energy futures: the long march with pitfalls
There is an obvious connection between energy and economic growth: cheap fuel means lower production costs. As energy consumption is on an upward trajectory -with growth in the Far East and Latin America outpacing the industrialised countries in the near term - the key to prosperity is to develop cheaper and sustainable sources of fuel to replace fossil fuels and curtail the environmentally-unfriendly carbon footprint.

BCG-K@W Procurement Report: Part 8: Peformance-based Logistics
