A Slow Storm

I have to get a grip on it. It seems that my obsession about the insanity of the world is a touch out of control.

All in all, the world is not going to come to an end. It is however coming to a changing point and being ready for it is a matter of calm and resolution, not chicken little ranting. I sincerely believe that the issues that were identified in the 1960's and 1970's (end of oil and environmental degradation) are coming to fruit. But it is a long toss between:
  1. topping the oil peak and moving past the 50% degradation mark and
  2. the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.
The war in the Middle East in all of it's permutations in Israel, Palestine, Iran, Iraq, and the sordid and sundry little "terrorist" claques that goad the whole mess on are going to be with us for a while and it looks like we will lose the whole thing on that oldest of reasons, we just can't afford to stay in the game.
