"As their wealth grows, people consume more energy, but they move to more efficient and cleaner sources — from wood to coal and oil, and then to natural gas and nuclear power, progressively emitting less carbon per unit of energy"

The question is, why do they move? And can we encourage faster movement in countries that seem to be either lagging behind, or prematurely in those that are yet to reach their Kuznets curve peak?
