Wow! After reading this, I'm starting to think that maybe opting out on Web services might be something for me. Banks don't appear to be very responsible for any money stolen. Maybe TARP can help us when our money is stolen by thieves, just-like-the-banks! Oh wait I forgot.. we have to be responsible citizens.(Somebody has to!)
I hope they get smart and figure out a way to store water to start and raise plants to stabilize their area. It might even knock off a few degrees of heat during the evening. (If you live near a forest you experience the cool 'air conditioning' that plants can do for you.)
Hey, can us 'old timers' keep our old, ancient, (straight forward) browser interface? If the same mindset goes to other fields, I'm sure its going to be just as much fun to move the gas, gear shift, brake pedal, turn signal, radio, to different parts of the car each year they come out! Because we have so little to do these days, its fun to relearn the same stuff over and over!
Great, but don't hold your breath.. South America has been making fuel out of old tires for years. Canada has been able to make fuel out of garbage for 10 years now by exposing garbage to high heat and pressure with no oxygen. (This stuff is either suppressed or killed.)
We manufacture (1) unnecessary paperwork, (2)political hatred, (3)unnecessary wars and war products, (4)corporate enforcement rules with paperwork, for benefiting corporations. (See? We still manufacture stuff!)
Coal plants are the dirtiest plants in the world! The emit thorium into the air which causes lung cancer and mercury which goes into all waters. Coal, like petroleum is more valuable for other purposes than just burning it.
