Alright, I might be a little late to the party on reading this book, but at least I'm reading it now. All I have to say is I'm blown away by what I'm learning.....greed and stupidity really did get (and still does) the best of us. So far in my reading on the Climate Change chapter, which takes place in the 60s-80s, I can't believe Nierenberg was able to get the Carbon Dioxide Committee to agree on individually signed chapters presented by natural scientists and economists and then have the balls to push the economists agenda. Then the fact that: So that was in '79, boy did they get this wrong. The extreme storms and droughts are causing the country millions of dollars each year and new tech (mostly solar) while steeply getting cheaper year after year still has a hard time because the fossil fuel industry has taken over the country since then - making it extremely difficult for technology to answer our problems of today.
