Edward, What's infuriating, I was teaching this in 1970 or so. I wasn't 
the only one of course. The information was there. Rachel Carson, Club of 
Rome Report, Global Report for the Year 2000 and lots of other articles, 
books. We knew it. Now more people are getting convulsed over the 
situation. But as long as we have fossil fuels, people like Trump and 
Putin and Xi Jinping and Maduro and god knows else beating their goddamn 
chests and bullying the rest of the world, nothing's going to change. 
These people would have done less harm in the paleolithic, but now they 
can bring the whole planet down with them. Ugly people and all the protest 
marches in the world aren't going to stop the buildup of fire power etc. 
etc. I feel utterly hopeless about this. I keep talking publicly about 
this whenever I can; at the same time I can't imagine it making a 
difference, given the massive coagulations of money, firepower, and 
digital despotisms wildly bullying at the top. Example: US sending 
warships into Chinese territorial claims. Example Chinese territorial 
claims. And so forth.
