Can help our future generations by improving infrastructure as by preserving rain forests
As much as educating children as by leaving oil in the ground.

Should grandparents have reduce their standard of living when life was worse than now to leave raw
material in the ground for my benefit?
1 billion of people on $1 a day are more important than the future generations.
Summers-interspatial equity dominates intergenerational equity
If a project is bad for environment, will produce diseconomy, reduce social rate of return
Ehrlich-took 5 non-renewable raw materials, the prices fell over 10 years.
