Abstract

The pattern of human settlement has developed, during the last hundred years, towards "megalopolis" on the one hand and "vast emptiness" on the other. This has been made possible by the availability of cheap and plentiful fossil fuel. As fossil fuel ceases to be cheap and plentiful, the present pattern may have to change. This will require a change in technology. The article gives a short account of the ideas behind the work of the Intermediate Technology Development Group, London.
