Thanks for posting this Mike. Watched about 50% before work today. The rest this evening. Please keep up your DTM efforts – they are worthwhile and appreciated! Sam Powrie, Adelaide.

I have for a long time considered that there two things that most mitigate against the survival of the human race.

1. Capitalism: The only thing that is important to capitalism is profit. Nothing else matters, regardless who or what it consumes or destroys.

2. Democracy: democracy means politicians who have one interest, to get re-elected. They will do nothing that will interfere with that. Anything that is essential but interferes with re-election will not be done until the politicians are forced to do it. It’s then too late.
