14. Oh, I have no doubt it will be done.

We'll try every last blessed thing we can think of once things have gotten too bad to tolerate. In the end we will eat the songbirds out of the trees if we have to.

I've given up on "environmentalists" at this point too. Most of the movement still believes in trying to preserve some kind of global growth - in numbers, activity, economies - when all of that that is demonstrably the problem. The cultural programming is too deeply set in all of us to permit any mass turnaround of our behaviour within the next 10 years - which is when it has to happen if we're to avoid the very worst sorts of global immiseration.

It's not a question of gas prices and jobs any more...
