This is meant as semi-humorous commentary to the climate change harangue going on over on Ian’s blog “Letters Home to You“.
While I absolutely agree that humans should take seriously our role as the Custodians for Coming Generations, I also believe, like George, that the planet’s been through a lot worse than us (and will be again). And, if the planet is a self-correcting system, we will need every bit of our ingenuity to take care of ourselves during the changes.
The harder truth is that resources are pushed to the limit keeping up with the world’s population growth. Will water and food riots be in our future? Certainly something to think about while you’re considering your carbon footprint.
Ah, small update to include this BBC4 Radio podcast, The Food Programme, which is available for download or listened to this week only.
