Horses to horsepower to joules

The next industrial revolution is social. Imagine every consumptive socially alienating act of mundane daily life transformed into a connection to the rest of society. Imagine that your living well not only comforts and supports you and your family, but makes it possible for the other seven billion or so, and their heirs, to have that same possibility.
Have purpose and connection to the earth, the forces of nature and all living things, and live even more comfortably than you do now.
That is the promise of the sustainable industrial revolution, of living with intention.
Forget saving the planet. Save yourself and make civilization a term Gandhi would speak of in the present tense.
