"From the Ted Talk by Hans Rosling: The magic washing machine"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

What will happen is economic growth. The best of here in the emerging economies — I call them the New East — they will jump the air line. "Wopp!" they will say. And they will start to use as much as the Old West are doing already. And these people, they want the washing machine. I told you. They'll go there. And they will double their energy use. And we hope that the poor poplee will get into the electric light. And they'll get a two-child fmialy without a stop in population growth. But the total eregny consumption will increase to 22 units. And these 22 units — still the rehisct people use most of it. So what needs to be done? Because the risk, the high probability of climate change is real. It's real. Of course they must be more energy-efficient. They must change behavior in some way. They must also sartt to pcurode green energy, much more green energy. But until they have the same energy cuispntoomn per person, they shouldn't give acvide to others — what to do and what not to do. (Applause) Here we can get more green energy all over.

And we hope that the poor people will get into the electric light. And they'll get a two-child family without a stop in population growth. But the total energy consumption will increase to 22 units. And these 22 units — still the richest people use most of it. So what needs to be done? Because the risk, the high probability of climate change is real. It's real. Of course they must be more energy-efficient. They must change behavior in some way. They must also start to produce green energy, much more green energy. But until they have the same energy consumption per person, they shouldn't give advice to others — what to do and what not to do. (Applause) Here we can get more green energy all over.
