I admire your spirit Desiree! Thanks for your reply.
It seems pretty simple; we need energy, lots of it.
If we had unlimited energy, and we were no longer producing pollution, it seams reasonable to expect population expansion worldwide might level off in the same way as it did in developed countries after the baby boom.
Pollution is a product of inefficiencies in energy production.
To reduce pollution to zero, or near zero, we must process energy in the most efficient way possible.
That means gathering it directly from the source, the sun.
It is frustrating as an Engineer to be able to see this clearly, whilst apparently not being able to impart the information to others in any way it can be understood.
But I will keep trying :)
