Here's something of a conundrum...
You live on a rock with a finite number of resources and there's plenty of proof that a lot of important resources are either running out or will become too expensive to use in the not too distant future.
What do you do?
A. Bugger all and continue as normal.
B. Bugger all, continue as normal, and hope someone smart comes up with an answer.
C. Bugger all and radically expand your use of depleting resources...
Not much of a choice is it?
I don't know, but somehow the headlong plunge into bigger and bigger boats just seems a kiss problematic.
