A proof of the cluelessness of economic and political and even scientific leaders:
1) Cheap energy creates exponential growth because it will be easier to use it than actually work.
2) Nuclear energy will use the last reserve of energy stored in the universe. Far beyond earth history (like fossil fuel), it goes all the way to the big bang: the energy in the atom. After that, it's GAME OVER
3) Exponential growth will always deplete resources in linear time. (Remember the story about the king, the checkerboard, and the grains of rice?)
*) Conclusion: The only way forward is to make a 180 degree course change and transition from an economy of expansion and growth, to one of collaboration and interconnectedness: the CreativeEconomy.
...an "Economic Sanctuary". Help me code it.
