That's the only thing you think we have to worry about, shorty? The only thing? Not global warming, ocean acidification, melting icecaps, algae blooms, peak-fish, topsoil loss, GMOs and pesticides, the continent of diffuse junk floating in the pacific, biodiversity loss, deforestation and desertification, depleting aquifers and icepacks, the fragility of monocultures (i.e. wheat rust), smog, industrial pollution, coal heavy-metal pollution, AND (last but not least) peak oil?
I'm sure I've missed a few above. I bet I could fill a couple paragraphs with issues that continue to grace this board. But as long as BAU seems to be holding, the trucks keep coming to Wal-Mart and McDonalds keeps serving cheap value meals, all is well?
Your narrow perspective is pathological.
