Response to Warren DeMontague (Reply #85)

86. I believe civilization as we run it now is unsustainable.

 

We cannot keep spewing greenhouse gases into the air into perpetuity. We must change this.

We cannot keep destroying forests forever. Eventually they will run out. Rapa Nui learned this the hard way.

We cannot keep pumping our farmland full of poison spray.


Civilization has to change and abandon these MAJOR pillars of wastefulness and pollution that currently sustain it, or there will be a total collapse.

That is, unless you believe in magic, and the inexhaustible nature of natural resources.
