  •  Global warming is a symptom of the root cause (0+ / 0-)

    There are 100 times more people than the planet can sustain without catestrophic effects. The problem isn't that we haven't enough non-polluting energy, it's that there are far too many polluting  people. If we don't reverse the population growth basically now, then the future appears very grim. I wish that it weren't so. But it is quite apparent. We are taking all of the available space. It is killing off the biosphere. We live at the limits now.
         Until we get off this growth model and implement a long term sustainable model we are rolling the dice with our planets's ability to sustain life in the future. Our caplitalist system of free enterprise is in oppostion to it's own future. But then the invisible hand of the free market has no visionary capability. It only demands "More". I'll bet some of the readers will see the day when the future replies "There is no more"
    Sorry to be pessimistic but Cassandra's been screaming for a long time.

    Slow thinkers - keep right
