This paper's objective is to apply Intervention Mapping, a planning process for the systematic development of theory- and evidence-based health promotion interventions, to the development of interventions to promote energy conservation behavior. Intervention Mapping (IM) consists of six steps: needs assessment, program objectives, methods and applications, program development, planning for program implementation, and planning for program evaluation. Examples from the energy conservation field are provided to illustrate the activities associated with these steps. It is concluded that applying IM in the energy conservation field may help the development of effective behavior change interventions, and thus develop...
Three major contemperary problems related to energy are discussed by Dr. Maxey. First, the alleged causal association between environmental degradation and energy-intensive technology is refuted. Dr. Maxey contends only the wealthy, high-technology societies are able to protect environmental quality. For example, only technologically advanced nations can afford sewage systems, disposal plants, etc. Concerning the alleged causal association between natural resource exhaustion and industralized hard technology, Dr. Maxey suggests that industralized nations are better able to protect renewable resources, like forests. Less-developed countries without other sources fo energy must cut their forests for fuel. The final...
