What, Lubos don't count? Kary don't count? How about Freeman Dyson? Tongue

I'm just pulling your tail, Alf. Knew you'd post a link sooner or later. Big Grin

(I mean, I've read a fuckload of this stuff. You have a legitimate point; it is just this issue is so - fucked off - there's been a lotta marginalizing going one)
Gwynne Dyer asks: was Bush an Iranian Sleeper?

I'm sorry, man. This guy seems to be marginalizing himself... He wants to ignite a volcano?!?!

Me and Zat might hafta agree to disagree on this issue.

Grow a different plant that uses less water! Currently grow fruits and vegetables in an area that is getting colder and is now susceptible to more frosts later in the growing season, killing your crop? Stop growing fruits and vegetables and grow something else.

The important points are:
1) to adapt to the changing climate because it will continue to change
2) reduce pollution because we have seen higher rates of asthma and other illnesses that are associated with air, water and soil quality
3) stop trying to fix it. Instead, allow nature the time to repair itself. Far to often projects like reef restoration do more damage than good. We go in and try to restore the reef to some level that we deem valuable (despite the fact that we may be restoring it to a previously altered state. For instance natural, healthy reefs that are undisturbed by man have a lot of sharks. I have never seen someone want to restore a reef so as to bring back sharks, that makes snorkling a bit more dangerous). If we simply reduce our trash and pollution output, build smarter building in smarter areas and leave nature alone to repair itself, in a few thousand years it may be able to recover a portion of what has been damaged.
I agree with this stuff. I agree with Zat when it comes to money - that shit is fucking nasty - and yeah, those two go hand in hand. Food distribution is a wank - there's no sense to it (plenty of cents, though)

I'm saying, ya wanna "fix shit" on a big scale, go to a hole like Detroit - rip it up, throw in an Arcoplex - where a million people live in a building. It's feasible, transportation and distribution go down to not much. Ya just gotta "push people around." People don't like that, but tough - if we're the problem, we need to be solved; not the environment.
