|tangled wires - not what we consider safe|
I take my washing machine for granted: it washes clothes and doesn't electrocute me. Pretty cool really. Behind that statement is lots of infrastructure built with safety and reliability in mind. Just because it's relatively cheap now doesn't mean the investment over time wasn't serious.
So why are we suggesting that there is a "moral case" for cheap (and nasty) electricity in countries where millions currently don't have electricity to their homes? Or maybe not even a settled home? It's a big job - it will take planning and preparation, evaluation of the whole situation and the use of appropriate technology to bring energy equity to the world - and keep it clean!
