Commoner argues that the environmental, energy, and economic crises are interconnected. The industries that use the most energy have the highest negative impact on the environment; the focus on non-renewable resources as sources of energy means those resources are growing scarce, thus pushing up the price of energy and hurting the economy. These problems can ultimately be addressed only by replacing capitalism with socialism.
