Hello, friends:

I found this wonderful article at Spiegel online, the web presence for der Spiegel, the German newspaper. According to the article we might just be able to pull ourselves back from the brink of extinction, but we need to do it together and soon.

It's a fascinating read. For someone as pessimistic about our chances as I have been of late, this brings a breath of hope. PLEASE read it my friends. I believe it's a road to recovery.

Guys, if this wasn't so ominous, it would simply be pathetic. It illustrates all too clearly what we can expect in future.http://www.treehug ger.com/files/2007/03/ill inois_man_fi.phpMKT
