IMO, anyone who isn't concerned has no children, grandchildren, and actual, or potential, great-grandchildren. Those, and their children, will be the ones fighting for limited resources.

I have a child and potential grandchildren, etc. I never said I wasn't concerned, only that I can't worry about it. I do my part and that's all I can do. Fretting and gnashing teeth over what others do is useless and a waste of precious emotional resources. I don't know what, or if, you have for a rig but it seems a bit hypocritical to harp on others about being concerned for the environment if driving a big gas guzzler. It's like the climate change activists flying their private jets to meetings. Just sayin'.

If it's too big of a sacrifice to do something about it,...IMO the mantra will become,.....I can't breathe,...but it's OK,... because there's nothing to eat anyway.

".. because there's nothing to eat anyway."

Not actually true. They are replacing cows with "tastes like a burger" plants.[emoticon] Can grow a lot of plants in the space a cow needs.

“Better living through chemistry” making the flavor and texture additives for the soy.

Soy is not well adapted for growing on much of the currently used grazing land.

I predict fresh water that can be made potable (remove contaminates) will be the biggest issue.
