Thanks for the blubberland link, Dallas.
For everyone who remembers Idiocracy, one of my favorite future scenario movies:
Ecological devastation is the excrement, so to speak, of man's power worship. -- Ernest Becker

Blubberland: The Dangers of Happiness
Welcome to Blubberland--a world of quadruple-garaged mansions, vast malls, gated communities, stretch limos, and posh resorts. Blubberland is a place, but it is also a state of mind: we expect to be happy (trophy house, SUV in the driveway, home entertainment system, pension fund, cosmetic surgery), but in fact we've grown increasingly bloated, bored, and miserable. In Blubberland, award-winning critic Elizabeth Farrelly looks at our "superfluous superfluity," our huge eco-footprint, and asks why we find it so hard to abandon habits we know to be destructive. Why can't we build human-scale cities, design meaningful public spaces, eat reasonable meals, and stop assaulting nature? Farrelly, trained as an architect, begins this story with architecture, urban sprawl, and housing, but she does not end there. She also looks at "affluenza," childhood asthma, diabetes, addiction, beauty, ugliness, narcissism, climate change, mega-churches, big box retailers, sustainability, depression, anorexia, and the links that collect all of these issues under the same roof--the roof, as it were, of the McMansion. As "big" becomes more and more pervasive, and success is seen in increasingly measurable and material terms, the goal of happiness jeopardizes our survival. Blubberland is a smart, thoughtful, and stylish argument for turning things around. Elizabeth Farrelly is one of Australia's liveliest and most provocative writers on architecture and the environment. The winner of the CICA International Critics' Award, the Pascall Prize for Critical Writing, and the Marion Mahony Griffin Award, she is a columnist for the Sydney Morning Herald, a commentator on Australian television and radio, and Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Sydney.

Ask government to spend a little to save a lot"On February 5, 2013, the federal government’s environmental watchdog released a report suggesting that Canada has a long way to go to protect our coastal ecosystems and oceans.The report — by Canada’s Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Scott Vaughan -- questions why Canada has only protected one per cent of our oceans, and cautions that we won’t meet our commitment to protect 10 per cent of our oceans for decades to come unless we take action now.Meanwhile, Australia and the United States are well on their way to meeting ocean conservation goals (at 40 and eight per cent respectively)In short, it’s a lot of talk and little action.Ask government to spend a little to save a lothttp://action2.davidsuzuki.org/spend-a-little-save-a-lot
No kidding, I believe someone commented in the comments section on the article how frustrating that would be!
It's a nice expansion on the humidity nets we were setting up in the 80s. Amazing isn't it to have that much humidity and only 1 annual inch of rain.
