  •  simple math says I'll be 95 in 2047... (1+ / 0-)

    ...exponential population growth v. the earth's finite capacity to sustain it says I'll be dead way before 2047. The margin for error? It depends on who you believe and on whose star to hitch your wagon to. The sun, wind, and geothermal energy alternatives make the most sense. But time to act before the frog comes to a boil is a luxury, the sense of urgency being lost in the translation. I've always said the dinosaurs would get the last laugh. They saw the meteor that ended their reign coming and couldn't do anything to save themselves. We see ours coming but stubbornly refuse to adapt and overcome the obstacles standing in the way. We cling to old ideas and refuse to think out of the box. And we scoff at-even ostracize and banish to outer darkness those brave souls who dare to defy conventional wisdom. "For the glory of the empire".
