No Pony For You!

A phenomenal article on the looming challenges we collectively face with our energy infrastructure by Tom Murphy ~ Associate professor of physics at the University of California, San Diego:

Sustainable Means Bunkty to Me
Excerpt – "A child who wants a pony might first be asked to demonstrate that he or she can feed and take care of a gerbil, then graduate to a kitten, a puppy, a goat, and finally a pony. Currently, we’re not taking care of our gerbil, so we have not demonstrated that we deserve a pony. Perhaps we also don’t deserve to be brandishing the term “sustainable” for chicken-scratch contributions."

How bout a Gerbil-Pony instead?
