So - all the fossil fuels are coming out of the ground aren't they? Is there any other course of events because I can't see it.

'Technology will save the day' is the standard response to these concerns. Isn't the obvious conclusion to take from all this is that technology was a huge part of the problem all along? And that we need less technology, not more?

We need better, and less, technology, is my hunch.

it feels sometimes about as unreal to me as narnia, and that just makes it all the more awesome
