Since human beings are seldom completely satisfied with what they have, the engineer's job is never-ending. Some new device or structure or process is always desired or needed. The burden is further multiplied by the fact that one solution frequently creates a series of new problems which must in turn, at some time, be solved. These new problems created by old solutions are the subject of this paper. More specifically, the paper concerns the use of natural resources: energy, minerals and water.
