Re: What if Global Warming is a Red Herring?

for those still interested and to make things even more confusing http://www.skepticalscience.com/ http://www.sprword.com/videos/globalgovernance/ oh and that 9,6 billion people limit is BS (bad science :P). the planet's carrying capacity is changeable, it all depends on the sustainability of human ...

Re: Generation M

It's not about old people, it's about old mentalities. It can be difficult and even painful for a person to revise or remove the cherished understandings which they have considered true for long periods of time. Being open to information and change is the only thing that is going to keep people flex...

Re: How cool is that?

Well my cake example was a bit poor, what I mean is that if people hoard resources, instead of sharing them, it's going to generate conflict. And sharing does not cause shortages. Convince me otherwise. If a city,for example supplied cars for it's citizens to use freely, they probably wouldn't have ...

Re: How cool is that?

I'm positive that there are at least enough resources to end hunger. It's nice to imagine that, if we all could just agree to share everything, we'd all end up with what we need. This just isn't realistic. We would then really have shortages. I'm not following you on this one, please elaborate. the ...

Re: How cool is that?

I was 100% with you until this: In other words, waste is a deliberate byproduct of industry’s need to keep ‘cyclical consumption’ going. This means that the replaced/obsolete product is expelled, often to landfills, polluting the environment. The constant multiplicity accelerates the pollution. Thi...
