    Unfortunately that statement likely wouldn't be true for current First World youth.  The drawbridges will be pulled up in their behalf.  For youth in e.g. Africa, by contrast, the fraction will be decidedly closer to 1.

    OTOH, it seems hard to imagine China and India not being overtaken by chaos when global food supplies turn up short.  Before that happens, I expect they'll resort to nuclear blackmail.  How many First Worlders will be starved to make those payments?

    I point to such prospects, and I point to Obama's apparent belief that he can compromise with physics (not that he's more than just one cog in a large machine headed over the cliff).
