If sustainability is your game an article of April 26, 2013,” The Race of Our Lives”(GMO) by Jeremy Grantham, should be a worthwhile read on your Tablet (click here for article.).– at In part because his basic thesis is that the white horse of hope for the future of our endangered species and planet just might turn out to be the triple whammy of (a) serious autopilot demographic downsizing, (b) deus ex machina help from our extended 21st century brains (think internet and/or Zetabytes/Open Systems) and (c) the bountiful near-term harvest of renewable energy which is just around the corner. It’s a pretty good read for your spare time.
But what really woke me up from my general head bobbing was the section in which he passes the ball to the Chinese as the people who are most possibly going to take the lead in this newer and more rational world. Now that’s a thought and that’s why I am sending this on to you.
