In the past 40 years, consumption of primary energy in Japan (and in most of industrialized countries) per person increased more than three folds. Have we become happier in these years? Family ties, joy of having vacations, unforgettable memories of good friends and so on, these we had all the same or even more in forty year ago. What have we obtained then, by the three fold increase of energy usage now? Easy lives with excessive foods, more leisure time and so on, in exchange for clean water and air, beautiful natural sceneries and so on. ENEKAN, a gathering of people of various fields of science and engineering, of business in various fields, of social workers, of house wives, of students and so on. Members are all concerned about or feeling ill at ease observing our extravagant consumptive lives supported by the exploitation of natural resources and consequent deterioration of natural environment. The primary emphasis is placed on the effort to face the problem from the very root, in other words, what is happiness of humankind. Everybody knows that affluence and easy life does not bring happiness yet the society is run, in fact, based on such an assumption. Philosophical yet pragmatic, serious yet amusing approach to this difficult problem may be seen as you read the articles listed in the following pages. Satisfaction is backward, progress of mind bring us happiness!!
