It's recomended though that you go through each scenario in order, or else the Orc campaign storyline might make no sense.

The third scenario is highly entertaining. Lot's of off-the-chart graphs with arrows heading straight up or down outside the box boundaries, stuff to give grandpa the poops.

However I do believe technology will triumph, as always. The real problem is crapping in our backyard, someone needs to clean the hamster cage because eventually we are polluting ourselves to death.

Can you explain what it is you mean by that? What exactly do you mean by triumph? There are so many examples in human history where there has been suffering and technology has not come to the rescue. Is the only measure of technology failure one in which humanity is wiped out?

Also, who is this mysterious someone you are expecting to do the cleaning?

We will find a renewable and clean and cheap source of energy that will replace burning things. It will usher in a new Age. We've been burning things since time imortal and when we finally stop, it will change everything. I don't know what it will be but I think we will find it once things get really uncomfortably hot.

you.. me.. every generation has a challenge and about 40 good working years to do it then you pass it on to the next generation.
