Where we are headed

This is one of the Time Magazine Quotes of the Day:

Even with modest U.N. projections ... by 2030, humanity will need the capacity of two Earths to absorb CO2 waste and keep up with natural-resource consumption.

-- A statement by the World Wildlife Fund on carbon pollution and the projected overuse of the Earth's natural resources

It looks as if, as a species, we are simply not willing to change in order to save ourselves. Maybe, for some reason, we just can't.
