Downsizing DC and Saving the Environment

I posted this at the Downsize DC blog. Brief post, and briefer excerpt:

The biggest threat to government, business, and household budgets is waste: money that dribbles away with nothing to show for it.

The biggest threat to the environment is waste: goods disposed of prematurely, and energy consumed with nothing to show for it.

But goods cost money, and energy costs money. Wasted energy is wasted money. We could say, then, that environmental waste is a cause of economic waste.
