Humanity's future depends on better choices

My old friend and work colleague Brian was an academically qualified scientific researcher before he retired. He spent 55-plus years performing, supervising and managing a selection of scientific endeavors and programs sponsored by the Western world governments, industry and philanthropists during the last half of the 20th century.  He worked in England and all over the USA and still travels extensively to Europe and the Far and Middle East. Brian tries very hard to keep to posted speed limits and only drives his automobile at maximum speeds of between 55-70 mph when possible.  He claims that this enables him to get 10-15 percent better gas mileage from the imported gasoline that he and all of us are forced to purchase.

As we drink our coffee from sustainable cups on meet-up mornings, we always seem to get into why the world has got itself into some of the predicaments it now finds itself in, i.e. incessant wars, burgeoning population growth, food shortages for huge segments of its population, insatiable demands for energy and materials coupled with diminishing sustainable sources of them, the effects of globalization and how it evolved etc. etc. It is absolutely obvious to us that these problems result from poor decisions in the past.
