Anyonewho sits around thinking that our world is just such a fine place is in serious denial. Not that the world, or the world as far as humans are concerned, has always or ever been perfectly great, but certain things arein critical shape, and some are likely reaching end points. I am in no way one of those fanatical "end of days" type. I just look, listen, read, and think. I'd love to see a world with a maximum of maybe 1 billion human animals on it, who spend their time on earth making art, beautiful architecture, great food, and exploring the scientific world. So 5 out of 6 of ya, get thee to mars!

And you know who I'm talking about................................................................... .........................................................................who? Who me? Wait....

ACTUALLY - here's an interesting article that discusses the "problem"...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually, REALLY, the biggest problem we face on this planet is the depletion of fossil fuels.

This absolutely is the 900 pound gorilla in the room.

I've been reading up on the subject quite a bit in the last two years and it's devastatingly frightening.

Those of you (IN FACT, ALL OF YOU) who want to check into this (WHO SHOULD & MUST CHECK INTO THIS)

could read either "The Long Emergency", by James Kunstler, or The Party's Over", by Richard Heinberg.
