26. K & R. So many people on this board don't even list "the environment" among
their top ten issues. The World Wildlife Fund numbers came out over ten years ago and were based on CURRENT consumption rates at that time. Consumption/ destruction rates have soared since then, so it's safe to assume that we have less than 30 years left. So where does everyone here plan to be when the planet can no longer support higher life forms and we're fighting over the remaining scraps?
