    I agree that there are many things driving hunger all over the world; government dysfunction, greed etc.
    But at this time and place we are also dealing with global changes in climate. Droughts and floods, severe weather of all kinds.

    Hunger is going to get worse I am afraid. And the rich will get richer off of it.

    I am a socialist, don't get me wrong. I think spending 30 billion would be a fabulous stop gap temp measure. It is inhuman not to. But we are going to have to cure the disease and face this head on.
    This planet is getting sicker and sicker, it is using its own immune system to kick us off for good.

      You're absolutely right.

      If you get a chance, you should check out my non-profit solar research organization that I started last year. I'm going to start posting some diaries here about what we're working on. It's pretty neat stuff and it's not decades away either. We're hoping to have a prototype working by the summer time.

      We're specifically trying to produce electricity, but because we're ultimately creating vast quantities of heat, we can also distill water with it. That's the next big problem the world will face.

      We post information almost daily about our progress. If you're interested check it out:
