Most people in first world, western economies are used to limitless, cheap energy. This has lead to incredible waste of energy, simply because it is cheap and affordable. when people start to value energy, they tend to waste less of it, for example by leaving lights on permanently, the computer on overnight etc. In the third world most people survive on a fraction of the electricity that the western world uses, if they are lucky enough to have any in the first place. If we added the cost of the environmental damage to electricity production, it would become far more expensive and perhaps more valued, rather than taken for granted.
