"The world would be a much better place if only everyone would simply do exactly as I say."
-- Gore Vidal
the world has to end sooner or later... but isn't it funny that our doomsday fantasies used to be centered around a lack of oil?
The Earth definitely has a sense of irony here.
For those of us who have already eschewed cars, enormous houses, global travel, fancy clothing and other trappings of a lifestyle that requires us to pretend a mindless affluence we've never had, this is NOT NEWS. The only news is that my family and friends who think I'm crackpot still don't fully get it, or want to.I want to see how many folks still have their heads in the sand a year from now.
Why are you reading blogs, instead of listening to the Yiddish Hour? :-)Yes, it's not news to those of us who are paying attention, and I get your point about seeing where public opinion goes in another year.
