Ye Know Not What Ye Do

About 20 ears ago or so I remember people speculating on what would happen when most of our citizens were raised in the city. The Borg?

The Corposystem.

Richard – Please – this is mostly not an oil issue, it is a FOOD issue.

Richard, of course you are right, but this is not the basic flaw in their world view.

The problem is that WE CANNOT GROW ANYMORE ANYWAY.

We are already using more FOOOD resources every year than the earth can replinish. This is not sustainable.

To do this we are killing off other species that the earth needs to make the food and air and water and earth that we require to stay alive. We’re not talking about our cars any more. We are talking about FOOD energy.

Please. Once we break the earth’s cycles of life, we don’t have the foggiest idea how to put them back together again.
