  1. I want to thank you for staying on this very important story. I have thought about it a great deal, and we seem to be the only species foolish enough to invent things beyond our abilities to control them, thus we build great empires, and they disappear without explaination.
    I think historians (assuming our species survives) will look back at this time as one of the great Golden Eras in known history. From 1800-2000, we went from candlelight to electric lights, horse and buggy to automobiles, jet planes, and probes on Mars. The Industrial Revolution was amazing, we went from candlelight, to gaslight, to electricity in every home in America. Social mobility reached a high never seen in history before, especially after the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869. This became a land of opportunity and growth.
    I think the turning point (and I am too close to it to be sure of accuracy) came with the splitting of the atom. It opened the door to technologies never imagined before, and they have done much damage to our world.
    I know this planet is much bigger than we are, and it will wash us away as easily as we wash ants from a sink. The planet will not allow us to continue, and we might become extinct from the nuclear nightmare we have launched. The planet will survive, even if we don’t.
    Meanwhile, the fools in power go on as if none of this is happening in their greedy pursuit of More Money and power, not recognizing we are only here for an instant in the scheme of things.
    I had a thousand year old tree outside my home for many years. I am gone, but the tree remains, and will be there for many more years. We have lost our perspective, we think we are masters of the planet, and we are only one small species living on it.
    With our water, soil, atmosphere destroyed, I don’t see how we will survive, no matter how much money we have in the bank………
