28. What is it about this consumer economy you can't do without?

I'll always remain me, even without my stuff.

Beyond that I am by inclination and much formal training an evolutionary biologist.

This planet has seen many innovative species come and then go.



In a million years this civilization is a peculiar layer of toxic trash in the geologic record.

If I have any saving grace, it's that I'm a humanist too.

This planet is home to several billion people who will survive with or without fossil fuels or any other fancy high technologies.

The meek shall inherit this earth for the simple reason that there are so many of them.
