For reduction, conservation, efficiency and changes we need new technologies, technologies that serve our needs/demands/wishes. A simple example: a new design of the airco for the not tropical part of the world uses only 10-25% of the energy used in old design airco's. An other example: remote desktop (or xml based) office technologies combined with VOIP/videocalling makes geographically distribution of office work possible, making office production location independent, preventing commuting, making or homework, or work in local shared office possible. Commuting to an office in the city is no longer needed by these technologies. We need new technologies and we need to start use/implement already existing technologies.
