28. Nope...and as much as I love my kids and grandkids
I'm sorry I've subjected them to what's coming. I'd like to believe humankind will find the answers before it's too late but between the greed and the apathy I don't see it happening.

I always thought our "leaders" knew like that even if the Earth was a hollow ball filled with oil it'd still run out someday and that they'd surely come up with a remedy sooner than now and wiser than putting our ever-more-vital foodcrops in the gas tank.

Serves me right for trusting.
