difference is I expect my fellow citzens to continue to despoil and
destroy natural assets, forever.* Just look around.

I fully expect that people will still do stupid things, as always. *I still don't really want to be a part of it, to the extent that I can avoid doing so.

I was wondering what the hell they were going to do with all those single hull tankers in 2010. Potable water is a good idea. I bet a lot of them will be heading to California...

In fact, that was a prediction made by the commencement speaker at California Maritime Acad. a few years ago.

Well, I really don't want to be a part of it either. Makes me sick the
way people trash nature and natural assets.

So do something about it, man! Part of the reason profit, ROI, cap rates, etc. matter is because they bring a higher standard of living. If the environment gets so trashed that the quality of life diminishes in pursuit of all that filthy lucre, what's the point?

I agree. I believe that capitalism, profit, ROI, etc, etc can coexist with
preserving the environment, but only theoretically. I believe so many
people are selfish, clueless, or just plain stupid that this
(environmental degradation) will continue; increase actually.
I am only one person and I am 60 years old. I am not starting any crusades
at this point in my life.

This is where the EPA, Kyoto treaty, etc come in and help solve the tragedy of the commons...
