Announcement: There will be no talk of “free energy” on my pages. It’s as fanciful (and based in a position of psychological denial) as “clean coal, clean nuclear and clean fracking.”
No denial-based tech here. Post no bills. Reality is: we’re facing the end of the era of cheap, readily-available fossil fuels. That’s where we live. Star Trek is not a documentary. We will have no Warp drives. We have no replicators.
We will have to suffer, to work, to, once again become managers and tenders of land and animals, workers of wood and stone, builders with brick and concrete.
There will be no alien technology suppressed by governments, released just in time to save our arses from our own destructive species’ personality.
Live with it.
