  •  It doesn't have to be that way... for your family (8+ / 0-)

    For mankind as a whole, I really have grave doubts anything will change until the famines begin and the wars break out.  On a personal level though, you can improve your chances.  e.g. Don't move to Las Vegas or petty much anywhere in the American Southwest.  Not if you are addicted to fresh water.

      That lack of foresight has along pedigree, from Rome to Easter Island.
      Our focus on economic issues has us tacitly assuming that any 'fix' to it will take, and there will be a happy ending.
      But the economy is the bird in the cage. We lavish our attention on the pretty, pretty bird, but the cage is collapsing. Without it, we lose the bird. To the cat.

      Class war has consequences, and we are living them.
