I know this has been on everyone's
mind, but I just read this
article today and was astounded at my lack of foresight.
Silly me, here I was worrying about global warming when what I need to be fretting about is the decrease in fuel's impact on the structure of international banking!
Will we run out of fossil fuel before it's too late
to save the environment
from pollution and greenhouse gasses? The abiotic nuts
think we've got plenty more.
Personally, I think we can kiss the marvel that is suburbia goodbye
and start contemplating the fact that the focus on the post-post industrial revolution will not be information, but rather agriculture
And since solar panels and windmills and the like are made of materials that are extracted, transported, and fashioned by using oil-powered machinery, my money's on the folks who're stockpiling uranium
for all those shiny new nuclear plants we're going to need.
So, do we have a plan? You bet we do!
Oh. Well, we'll just rely on the advancement of technology
to allow us to weasel out of it!
Me? I've actually always wanted a horse
