In opposition to the Green’s theories, around 40% of the world’s population live in conditions of a developing world, in which they use the only sustainable fuel they can find, which consists of mainly cow excrement and wood. They use the fuel for everything, but it makes highly dangerous indoor smoke, which does more health damage than all kinds of industrial pollution put together.

Developing countries, where industrialisation is low or nil, have poorer standards of life than we do in our highly industrialised countries.
Not only this, but the developing world hasn’t nearly enough water – the people walk great distances to get to water sources, that are rarely even clean. Their water is contaminated.
There is a high death rate in developing countries due to indoor smoke and contaminated water.

The only way for the developing countries to drink clean water is by cleaning the water using modern...
