What Joe Romm says . . .

I'll have a real post of my own anon, but meanwhile you are required to read this essay by Joe Romm.

Collectively, we are in deep, deep denial. But the hard truth is that this civilization that we built on fossil fuel is terminal. It won't exist much longer. We can plan for what comes after and maybe make it okay, or we can just go on blindly sailing toward disaster. The time to choose is now.

Blindly sailing towards disaster. That's what I see, and there's no will to change that. We could have made better choices in the 1970s, but instead the US population increased by 50% since that time. It takes a lot of energy resources to feed that beast.
