I would like to see us get it right before I die but there are so many “inconvenient truths” that we are failing to recognize or deal with that I have become increasingly skeptical the older I get.
How about nitrates in our drinking water? There are a lot of aquifers in our state with plenty of water, we just can’t drink it. It’s like the “Rime of the Ancient Mariner.: “Water water everywhere but not a drop to drink.”
The science exists to solve many of our problems. We’re just not using it. We’re not big on science as a country. Most Americans don’t believe in evolution, the theory of natural selection or climate change and especially man-generated or accelerated climate change. And that is what will kill us, and it will kill us sooner than we think.
