Victor Lebow

This bastard started the whole thing rolling...


Read his quote from 1955.

Now we have 1 billion people hooked on this notion and another 2-3 billion coming on board at a time when the planet is already reaching an exhaustion point of resource depletion, biosphere destruction, habitiat loss, wildlife extinction, global atmospheric and oceanic changes, and food production collapse.

Anyone who questions or doubts whether the perverbial S is going THTF, is not addressing reality.

And it seems that a LOT of people are not addressing reality. Case in point: on my short 15 minute walk today I must have seen a dozen people sitting in their cars (running of course) in parking lots, drive-thrus, or idling their vehicle at a shipping dock. It was a gorgeous, sunny day... 26C. If you had to wait, get out of your car. If you needed a drink, park and walk in and converse with another human being (face-to-face).

People either just don't seem to believe there actually is a problem, or are totally ignorant (it's hard to buy that argument these days) or simply don't care. I think it's the latter.

As a result, I honestly believe that we (collectively and unfortunately) will have to drive off the cliff, in order to realize that we were about to drive off a cliff. This is defintiely not going to be fun looking into either the rearview mirror, or the windshield.
