Out of the Blue

Today is an eventful day: In the non-secular world, it is Good Friday and Sundown marks the first day of Passover. In the (decidedly, apparently) secular, not to mention gaming, world, today kicks off PAX East in Boston, and is also opening day for all the Major League Baseball teams who didn't play yesterday who need to scramble to keep pace with the undefeated Mets. It's also arrival day for my new man stove, so the festivities just keep on rolling. Speaking of festivities, here's something I forgot: Happy belated birthday to my niece Chloe and to Batman!

Festive Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez and Acleacius.
Play: Tank 2012.
Urban Rivals Solo.
Stories: Tonia Sotiropoulou cast as Bond girl in ‘Skyfall’.
Science: MIT study predicting ‘global economic collapse’ by 2030 still on track. Thanks Slashdot.
Media: Pimp My Horse.

I wish this were hyperbole, but I've been following this for a while. We're already in the middle of peak oil, and many other critical resources have peaked or are about to, like lead, mercury, and rock phosphate. The truth gets obscured by mega corps funding astroturf organizations, suppressing what little interest there is by a population hypnotized by American Idol.

Whether these effects hit right at 2030 or a few decades after that is up for debate, but without major changes to be more sustainable, an ever growing, ever richer population will result in this planet being stripped bare and the catastrophic consequences that result before 2100.
