The Malthusian trap will be sprung. When, or precisely how, I've no idea; but unless some other population-devastating disaster occurs first, Malthus will be proved right.

On the subject of water. Los Vegas is apparently running short of it to keep the towns golf courses and fountains going amongst of course, other water related things. The towns wothies solution is to run a yay mile pipe onto ranching land and bore down and take water from there. Naturally the ranchers are not keen on this.

My solution would be to clear everyone out of Los Vegas and then nuke it. We could all watch. Mamon boom no Mamon.

NUKE IT !!!! Not just carefully knock it down, but lay waste a vast piece of desert with radiation. What are you.... nuts?
Mamon? Just 'cos you obviously hate Vegas, you would take it away from all those who love it? Again.....nuts?

Just read the Wiki description of Ryokan. The man was a "hermit." Hah, more like a bum, a tramp, a vagrant. No job, sponged food of people, loved a drink and spouted "clever" little poems. Go down Kilburn High Street late Sat night and you can find lots of those, usually drinking Tennents Super in a shop doorway

Absolutely. Las Vegas must not be touched, because it's full of rich, beautiful, pleasure-seeking people.

Far better to do it further out in the Nevada desert, where the people are poor, have no power to stop it, and are less able to enforce their rights. By definition, this makes them worth much less than the high-rollers whooping it up in Vegas. Oh - and you can even use them as unpaid test subjects.

Gary....poor.....very poor.....buck up! ....these boards are for intelligent debate.

XRNOHPORTER says:
Oh Simon I have come across very little intelligent debate in any of these boards.
Tom C, why nuke anyone? What sort of hate do you have for the poor of Nevada. Warmonger much? Or genocide?

Hi Gary. Just a small nuke with a limited radiation field on a still day. It could if handled right be very zen.

And here we go with the "sponged" idea again. There are enough resources on this planet for everyone to share but because the corporations/political parties and some of the media have lame brains like you to twist and turn at their will then that will never happen.

Get back to the sports page of the Sun Gazza and leave the appreciation of Ryocan for those of a little more intellectual breadth. Thicko.

Getting personel much Charlieost? Name calling doesn't seem very intellectual. Just cos my opinions differ from yours makes me a "thicko" and "a lame brain?" Yet you're the one talking nuke strike.
An appreciation for Ryocan doesn't change the facts about his life and do all those with an "intellectual breadth" appreciate his poems? Even Ryokan refused to call himself a poet.
And I loath The Sun.
Nazi. Ooooooooooooooooo name calling is fun hee hee

"What sort of hate do you have for the poor of Nevada."

Congratulations on missing the point - ie that the indifference of the Nevada rich towards the Nevada poor is not exactly new. You may wish to read why the latest proposed test was stopped. It had nothing to do with any concern for the people closest to it; more to do with the risk of products being blown towards where rich people live.

Name calling Charlieost? Not very intellectual. "Lame brain, Thicko" Read much Oscar Wilde do you? Can only those with an intellectual breadth appreciate Ryokan? (Oh, by the way you spelt it wrong ha ha) Because Ryokan himself did not call himself a poet (he was THAT humble)
I loath The SUN and stuck up intellectuals. Oooooooooo name calling is fun ha ha.

TomC says:
I have to point out, Gary, that it is run by people who are extremely rich, and who are well aware that their future prosperity depends on maintaining a comfortable environment in which suckers fly in, dump their life savings, and fly out again.

They aren't about to let people who they doubtless regard as hick farmers stand in the way of "progress", and one way or another they are not short of ways of overriding opposition.

Spin says:
Molly: water everywhere? Really? So why is the UK in drought conditions despite the amount of rain it has had over the past month and the extremes of water management it has resorted to? One cannot manage nature. The slightest alteration in temperature or rainfall can have devasting effects on a system , be it natural or man-made, that relies on continuity.

There is a part of Britain where there is no drought and it's been generally sunny (if chilly) for the past 3 or 4 weeks: the Lake District.

What percentage of this earth is water Spin?
I'm not that keen on Foo-fighters either really.
Let's all move to the Lake District? Or, we could make more lakes?

Too late to catch the sunshine Molly - it's poured down all last night and through today. Back to normal!

I have heard that harnessing tidal energy may impact on the sea ecology. Each hub that has to be sited within a certain distance of other hubs makes a noise for a start. There is also no agreement yet about what pattern is best for siting them.
