My letter to the editor re: Peak Oil, Climate Change and Debt crisis.
The article "In case of collapse, stay home" (Oct. 19th. 2006) promotes a scare-mongering view of the economic future of the North Valley and Chico areas. Citing oil shortages, climate change, trade imbalances and federal debt this Madison guy proposes we all start organic gardening, bio-diesel cooking and probably basketweaving as alternatives to jobs.

That'd be nice if the U.S. had a reality-based economy but it doesn't. I don't know why the chinese send us the great stuff at Wal-Mart in exchange for IOU's but they show no signs of quitting. At the first hint of flagging investment we'll just tender more MySpace, Youtube and Google stock and float the economy.

Because Americans are inventive we just don't have to worry about energy, climate or debt. We'll always have pickups, jobs and loads of great stuff!!

1. private communes are useless when nukes fly
there are dangerous extremists out there running governments that will start wars if people don't wake up to the lie of malthusian visions of finite resources and start talking about real workable widescale renewable alternative energy (and then sustainable agriculture)

running off into teepees won't stop nuclear war over mass media lies about energy issues
