The faith of our age is that science and technology will save us, no matter how we fuck up. Regarding energy use, the party-party line is that there are no looming shortages of conventional hydrocarbons, and even if there were, market forces would soon produce technological innovations to solve these problems, because we naked multi-colored apes, are just soooo fuckin’ clever:
An alternative position, which makes me violent, is that god loves us and would not want his soft and squishy pets to be without their consumer goods and services. Evolutionary violence, historical misery, impending mortality – not today thanks:
Regarding energy resources, nuclear fusion and thorium reactors are supposed to be the next big things, because, well, China is exploring them, so they must be onto something, because the Chinese are sooo clever, too, supposedly with average IQs of 105, or is that 1,005, Jared Taylor?
Most scientific explorations, like businesses, go nowhere, or make a long time to cash out:
Both of these sources of energy look promising, but not in the short term, and it is the short term which really matters now:
One can go on, but the point is that the mere existence of a technological solution to a problem does not prove that it can be socially applied, and applied in time. My guess is that humanity’s time has run out. Play Russian roulette long enough and the probability of blowing your brains out is certainty:
My main argument for “doom soon” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doomsday_argument), is that most human’s don’t like to face unpleasant scenarios, and will ignore the early warning signs of trouble. That blood on the toilet paper after wiping your shit hole: is it the early stages of bowel cancer, or just from straining your turdies too much? Better ignore it. It will go away. Sure. My brother ignored the early warning signs, and is now food for the worms.
