Right and Wrong

About 2 years ago, I'd posted a claim that by 2009, drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve will begin. At the time of my posting, there was no Obama. Mr.Bush, the tasteful, perhaps has a liking for wildlife... so, yeah, I was wrong - they haven't (yet) opened up the ANWR for drilling and its already mid 2010.

But... the very same Drill, Baby, Drill! message was sent home by Mr.Obama recently. Instead of ANWR, it is the offshore. Either ways, I was right about one thing, though: the signs of desperation are all over the place.

Apparently, the US govt study on Peak Oil was right. But apparently, it was wrong to convey the message to the public - atleast that's what's coming off the horse's mouth in an interview with Dr.Robert Hirsch.

Douglas Adams was right. There's something wrong with us indeed. One of my favourite ones from H2G2:

This planet has – or rather had – a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

And so the problem remained; lots of the people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches.

Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans.
