Linking "Depleting Earth" Worries to AGW

Yesterday I explained why Climate Change is “just” a tool in the quest to “improve” Energy supply.

There is a curious addendum to the above. Check out what environmentalists were asking themselves some time ago, to deal with the problem of a “depleting Earth” (from Bryan Johnson, “The Risks of Development“, February 5, 1972, The New York Times):

What is the prospect for third world leaders opting for new, and environmentally aware, development objectives?

Isn’t it funny how Climate Change, 36 years later, the above is exactly what third world leaders are being told to do?

And some have even been convinced to be the ones asking for those “development objectives“.
