Machismo And Energy Policy

While the importance of “feminine” values is today acknowledged in most domains, why is it that these values are not recognised in the energy sector? Moreover there is an increasing push to develop mega-projects that are risky and senseless in every mea- ning of the word: the oil sands pipeline from Canada to the United States, a new INGA dam devoted to energy exports within Africa, EPR nuclear plants that are quasi-impossible to build, ITER and fusion energy (which was already claimed in the 1960s to be a viable energy source in 50 years time) as well as many other initiatives that often uproot entire populations, sometimes treating them no better than livestock.
