Polar Cities and The Future of Mankind

Climate activist and oped columnist George Monbiot in the UK wrote a few weeks ago:

"Cormac McCarthy's thought experiment in ''The Road'' exposes one
terrible fact to which our technological hubris blinds us: our
dependence on biological reproduction remains absolute.
Civilization
is just a russeting on the skin of the biosphere, never immune from
being rubbed against the sleeve of environmental change."

uh, the correct phrase from Monbiot is actually "biological production" -- and NOT reproduction as you erroneously typed it.......PLEASE FIX

TYPO ALERT

maybe an ATOMIC TYPO?

-- William Safire

Effort to Colonize Antarctica
This blog is dedicated to providing information and updates about the coming effort to establish a permanent, independent and sovereign human colony in Antarctica.

As of the posting of this there are no permanent human settlements in the Antarctic. Only scientific bases and research stations exist there now. We hope to change that while abiding by the letter of the Antarctic Treaty by not polluting or being backed by any government. Our efforts shall be entirely private in nature.

Stay tuned to this blog for more information and updates about the official launch of ColonizeAntarctica.com
