    The growing middle classes in China, India and Brazil want:

    Individual cars, not bikes or buses
    Washers and dryers
    Air conditioning

    Add to that bringing 24/7/365 electric power to the underclass and the challenge is enormous.

      they actually seem to be doing quite well without the traffic jams of cars & the other problems associated with washers, dryers & A/Cs. Admittedly an A/C is convenient in hot climates, but whole house fans & other low energy cooling systems are much more affordable to buy & operate.

      Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.
