Stuff may get ugly very quickly. @ mk@ and I were talking about the physics of climate change. He brought up the point tha t phase changes often occur rapidly in physics. Our skyrocketing C02 levels are likely to bring on a new phase change in our world's climate. I 'm afraid he's fundamentally correct.

I'm sure it will be fine. It's not like UN projections for population growth in India and Pakistan aren't calling for 120 million people and 40 million people, respectively, by 2030. Which totally won't make the strain on water resources for people, crops, and livestock that much worse.

They're all gonna be Amish, right? They won't use any power?
