At the time, we heard a lot of capitalist pundits saying, "Aw, come on! People have been predicting disaster for eons, and it's never happened."* By the same logic, since my death has been predicted and i haven't died, i must be immortal.
By 1976, when all the international talk resulted in no action - indeed, growth was accelerated and governments all over the world were caving to church objections against birth control.... and then we in Toronto began to drink water bottled in France... i knew it's too late: we're well and royally screwed.


* (which of course was a lie; most of the predicted disasters had happened, but it's convenient to forget whatever didn't happen in our own lifetime)

Back in the day, before it became capitalized, more than a few scientists talked about global warming - and more than a few were talking about "downtown Phoenix" - it's concrete - go from my house, to downtown, in July - expect a rise in temperature. This case may not apply to this particular book - but from my research, that's the kinda simple extrapolation more than a few scientists made back then.

I've been keeping an eye on this topic of and on since '98 - and it has become a Major Issue since then. Like I've been saying - I'm playing "devils advocate" to Zat's "savior" - cause we know Zat's on the side of angels - even if they don't exist. Wink
Ya wanna know what happened back then that is real scary shit? Guy called Carter, I believe - made the original graph - that has since become peak oil.

Ignorance ain't bliss - but it's a whole lot less stress. Wink
