Jeffery Brown – the read of the day.

I’ve had a lot of time for this fellow, for a long time. Just quietly got on with looking at ‘what is’, and investigating ‘what will be’.

an excerpt:

“Of course, the conventional wisdom is that we can have a virtually infinite rate of increase in our consumption of a finite fossil-fuel resource base. Most governmental planners in the US are still making plans to cope with a vast increase in US automobile traffic in future decades. The irony of this point of view is that there is already evidence that we can’t fully maintain, let alone consider replacing, the current road system.”

The sun is shining- I’m away outside to things useful – may blog on the events of the day this evening. Have a good’un.
