To inject a breath of optimism, I thought I'd leave this here!

There is more change going on than people may realize. For every myopic person who can't or won't think out of the box, there are many people at work building solar plants, fuel cells, ocean wave capture, and many technologies that are going to become established.

Whether it is too late to save our agriculturally friendly geological epoch, I will leave for the more educated to debate. But by changing habits, the worst that will happen is that we'll make the world a better place and have more technology and energy options.

Human nature is a peculiar combination of base animalism capable of virus-level selfishness, and advanced life form capable of wonders and sciences (and application of it) beyond imagination.

So, if you're in the Hammer and feeling a bit left out - be of good cheer! In 15 years when Europe/UK/California have converted to hydrogen-electric trams and buses, they can sell us their secondhand electric transit vehicles!

None of that solves the congestion issue that a growing population brings with it, so whether or not one wants to hear it, transit right-of-way, and cycling/scooter network, is also coming, whether we fight it initially or not.
