No it doesn’t. You’re assuming (I think ?) I mean replication of modern life by DIY. It’s not practicable nor sustainable to do that, nor is it practical or sustainable to continue in the same vane as the rest of the western world is going to do. My point was, you can’t go truly “off grid” in Aus, you will be locked up or at minimum moved on.

We haven’t done anything substantive anywhere on the Planet, you get some twaddle about “making a start” but the facts are, doing anything substantive is too hard. It’s already is too late, the issue will be when geo engineering commences and THAT will happen as per your above sentence. Too late was when we passed 350ppm, the lag is 60 years or more before we feel the AGW effect from todays emissions. Replacing the planets Billion Cars with electric vehicles and solar energy, for example, won’t stop emissions, all that industry in keeping busy will EXACERBATE the problem.June 6, 2013 at 1:58 am #531568SnagsMember
No argument here.
We just havent hit the too hard to ignore bit.
The capitalist furnace that needs exponential growth to fire it is the problem
Peoples greed and fears and the short term political cycle means the solution is impossible.
I think we have passed the point of no return

Did the post you say was deleted ever actually appear? Or did yo hit submit and the post vanish? We have had a few cases of that in the past but never often enough or repeatable enough for us to work out why.
Dave, just read the email notification about what you said. If that is the case I might have made a mistake when posting, and wrongly suspected a deletion. I apologise. Forget what I said above.

Dan, this happens from time to time. No one knows why, it just seems that occasionally a post gets sucked into a wormhole and ends up in another galaxy, far, far away.
