But working from home benefits the planet. The amount of energy, fuel, and time that is expended annually just moving people into and out of a city each day must be phenomenal.

Working from home ... the energy to stroll across the living room, the time to sit down.

And it is always thus: change happens, and everything adjusts to it. Once it settles, it's generally an order of magnitude better for everyone than it was before - it just takes a long time to get there. The car bankrupted the horse based industries, forced the railways to try and adapt, killed business in taverns and way stations across the world. But allowed mass transit, distribution of goods, the rise of a comfortable middle class, a whole wealth of benefits that couldn't even be guessed at before the ICE.

I have no idea what home working will bring, but ... it's got to be better long term than the alternative!
