Come on in - the quicksand's fine: my part in the energy crisis : Comments

By Chris Shaw, published 12/6/2007

I see false leaders, false gods, false morality, bizarre economics and delusion masquerading as science.

Spot on. We're screwed -- I don't see anyway out of this unless there is some serious re organisation of the way we all live (and half has many people on the plant wouldn't go astray either). We are trapped in an end of our own making.

We can all reduce the demand for energy (drive a smaller car, walk more etc) but this will slow our economy and ultimately lower our living standards. This may not be a bad thing; it just depends on what we are prepared to give up.

If anyone's interested have a look at:

Thanks Chris, analysis long overdue. I read the links to your other posts, I'm amazed, not surprised, that the media has not tried to grapple with the information you posted.
Have you any idea what the use is by the ADF?
Back to throwing stones perhaps?
I trust your partner is in better health for your care.

Once again, Chris links up two ideas we normally keep apart - economics and reality - and makes accepted wisdom look silly.

Well done you old scalliwag.
