Efficiency of final delivered goods and services and of actual end use is 1 to 2 percent :India

This is a good discussion of the players in the thoroughly discredited modern civilization(mc) as it is played out in the new millennium. Bharat J discusses elements of a normal civilization(nc) when he writes about jobless growth and weavers, without going into the details of the glaring lacuna of the designs and their implementations in trying to meet the needs of mc.
This was perspicaciously brought out by Mahatma Gandhi in 1908, taking one look at mc. He said: Given enough time mc will destroy itself. There is a felt painful need to make a new law which will force the designs to enable production, consumption and RETURN, instead of waste because of Gandhi's law as stated above. Today, because of the imperfect knowledge(read corrupted truth) portions of modern civilization are exerting increasingly greater cumulative effects on one another leading to catastrophes: Example: the dams of the world are supposed to meet our water needs including spiking electricity demands. But the side effects are catastrophic: direct heating up of the earth, aggravating the extremes of weather in hydrological cycles leading to climate change, earthquakes which by a nuclear effect are causing nuclear catastrophes like Chernobyl, Fukushima and dam surge effects like at Kedarnath, and explosions in underground nuclear waste depositories like at Kyshtym and WIPP, New Mexico, mine explosions, spontaneous fires, arctic blasts and others. Growth must also be in the gross nature produce, not just mining our resources for evil profiteering. The utter neglect of lost opportunity in destroying nature instead of living by income from her is lost in mc which sees human beings and other embodiments of living energy as a liability. The need is to recognise the infintely superior godly design of living beings. Their outputs are precious, their excreta when returned to the earth are seamlessly used again to enable the production process of, for example food, to go on indefinitely. The parallel economy of mc is in direct contrast to that of normal civilization in harmony with nature. Neither modification or har-vard is the way. Its hariward- Ishvara life cycle that demands respect and implementation.

But look at the way the government of India through M oily and Manmohan Singh are going against the constitution and the Human Rights Charter of the UN:

PMO pulled out all stops to weaken eco, forest norms

The dangers of modern civilization are highlighted in the following discussion on efficiency of modern civilization which neglects the cycle of life and concentrates only on production, consumption and waste instead of return.

If an electrical energy programme is to deliver 83000 MW by 2017 the efficiency of final delivered goods and services and of end use may be as low as 1 to 2 percent. See Table EFDGSU:

A huge electrical energy programme slated to deliver a capacity of 83000 MW by 2017 including some 10080 MW nuclear may foreclose many a development project and concentrate only on energy resulting in huge non performing assets.
Instead, on the same total area, forests will deliver a permanent returning power flow of 2 million megawatts in a decade at the rate of 40 MW/km^2 area demanded by nuclear and fossil and hydro plants. This is the lost opportunity which must be factored in as is done below.

This is revealed by an Input Output analysis of the Indian Economy and a look at the 12th Five 
Year Plan and the energy audit of the Indian Nuclear Programme.

In the table below, the items for the year 2003-2004 are in percentage terms as given in the first reference. That is if goods and services are 1800 with 100% for each item of goods and services  then energy component of this is 449.9 got by adding up the energy component in percent for each item of goods and services. So if the goods and services in 2003-04 measured 1800 lakh crores of rupees, the total of the energy components is 449.9 lakh crores of rupees. For all the other items(for the period 2012-2017), the items are estimated actuals, except for the computed efficiencies.

In the 12th Five Year Plan the Incremental Capital Output Ratio ICOR is the highest so far(4.6, estimated)!

For example let us give an explanation to: What is the role of living energy on policy? : Modern civilization(mc) is a society of specialists who when they step out of their box, hold that they know nothing else. This has caused a set of elements which act against one another so as to destroy mc itself, as Gandhiji warned at the begin of the last century.Thus nuclear and coal fired stations require hydros without which the grid would collapse. On the other hand dams destroy forests(forests are infinitely superior), nuclear station Narora was wrecked,Kakrapara units were crushed and Kudankulam was damaged because of them and of course Fukushima melted and exploded and the ongoing catastrophe is destroying the Pacific and other oceans and damaging the genetic material of life itself. Add to this the uranium mountains at the mines and their newly discovered power to destroy at infinite biological effectiveness. Change lifestyle:Forests for dams,villages for cities and enjoy pedal power.
