    I think that this is definitely true in reference to climate change and environmental issues.

    Right now we operate in a vicious circle in which "solutions" to problems generate more problems. The mentality can be seen in the rush to pursue oil in the Arctic.  Burning fossil fuels melts ice, opening the region to oil exploration.  This oil exploration leads to more oil being burned, so that more ice melts.  And so we go.

    What we need is virtuous circles. Conservation frees up resources to build up renewable energy.  Renewable energy allows us to conserve resources, and so on.
