    Everything you've been told about being green is wrong. The quest for a breakthrough battery or a 100-mpg car is a dangerous fantasy. We are consumers, and we like to consume greenly and efficiently. But David Owen argues that our best intentions are still at cross-purposes to our true goal: living sustainably while caring for our environment and the future of the planet. Efficiency, once considered the holy grail of our environmental problems, turns out to be part of the problem - we have little trouble turning increases in efficiency into increases in consumption.

    Chris says: "A thorough critique, not a guide for action"
    "Interesting Observation from a Journalist"

    Story

    David uses his experiences and observations to investigate and compare the relationship between efficiency and environmental progress, but he fails to adequately back up his assertions. He uses logic rather then data.
