    With Al Due Respect, We're Doomed

    The lawmakers gazed in awe at the figure before them. The Goracle had seen the future, and he had come to tell them about it.

    What the Goracle saw in the future was not good: temperature changes that "would bring a screeching halt to human civilization and threaten the fabric of life everywhere on the Earth -- and this is within this century, if we don't change."

    The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, John Kerry (D-Mass.), appealed to hear more of the Goracle's premonitions. "Share with us, if you would, sort of the immediate vision that you see in this transformative process as we move to this new economy," he beseeched.

    "Geothermal energy," the Goracle prophesied. "This has great potential; it is not very far off."

    Another lawmaker asked about the future of nuclear power. "I have grown skeptical about the degree to which it will expand," the Goracle spoke.

    A third asked the legislative future -- and here the Goracle spoke in riddle. "The road to Copenhagen has three steps to it," he said.

    Sen. James Risch (R-Idaho) begged the Goracle to look further into the future. "What does your modeling tell you about how long we're going to be around as a species?" he inquired.

    The Goracle chuckled. "I don't claim the expertise to answer a question like that, Senator."

    It's kind of funny. I live a pretty ultra low impact lifestyle: grow a lot of my own of veggies, sew/knit a lot of my own clothes, cook from scratch, don't travel, hunt and fish, compost, recycle, and buy used and I still don't expect everybody around me to adopt my lifestyle.

    Would it reduce solid waste, put high quality greens on the table, and promote a sense of Independence and satisfaction? You bet it would but I don't expect the masses to agree with me even if they had the skills and energy to follow my example (and they don't).

    Gore really wants people to return to a subsistence lifestyle. I could do this easily but I sure wouldn't want to do it. I seriously doubt that he and his family could manage it at all.
