NEWS: Passing the event horizon

Remember Jan 16th 2006.

Today goes down as a crucial date in the history of humanity. Today is the day James Lovelock gave us our starkest warning about the state of Gaia and a wake up call of things to come. Oh and his new book is out ;)

If he is correct then arguably humanity faces a bleak future, if any. His solution seems to be that we should stop worrying about preventing climate change, which is, he now feels, on an inevitable path, and should instead think about preparing for a long, dark winter.

That is why he advocates the use of Nuclear power. Much food for thought people. Testing times ahead one way or another.

You might find "Rad Decision" interesting. It is a novel about nuclear power written by a longtime US nuclear engineer, and it provides a entertaining inside look at the industry (both good and bad). It's been endorsed by another environmental icon who's breaking away from the pack with regards to energy - Stewart Brand, founder of The Whole Earth Catalog. Rad Decision is available at no cost to readers at

Mmm - that picture looks familiar :)

All this talk in the media of possible blackouts is making me think I want to install some rudimentary (affordable) solar power or something at home. Maybe pedal power. Something to keep my computer and mobile charged.

Would be nice to still have those luxuries - as long as the exchange & isp has some kind of backup as well, of course.
