It took me three listens to this album, before I really got it. I have all his albums, and even then, he still took a different and unexpected turn with this one. It sounds tame these days, but he has always been a trailblazer, and an artist, never content with what he is doing. Always diverging, experimenting. Long live Mike Oldfield!

A tree hugging, artistic, astronaut wannabe. Hate Corporations, and Extreme Right wing politics. (sorry! can't please everyone!) I think the planet is beyond saving at this point, but we gotta keep trying anyway. And by that, I mean, the planet will survive just fine without us, but most of the life as we know it will probably go extinct with us. I go between hoping the economy will collapse, so we stop developing everything within our field of view, and hoping we conquer space, so we can keep going, long enough to grow the hell up!


Live long, and prosper!

Also read your blurb... I completely agree with you. There was a good quote from CK Lewis a comedian that I really like which went something like - so any time I get a climate change skeptic I just think to myself 'okay, why don't we just do nothing and hang around and see what happens huh?'

It's incredible to me that there is still debate on these kinds of subjects. Myself, I live in the middle of the pyrenees in France. People here still do things the old way. I mean seriously you see shepherds walking through the forests with their sheep (okay so they're listening to their ipods) but still!

Anyhow I thought you might like this video. If you haven't seen it before it's definitely worth seeing and sharing...

Okay, Real strange coincidence. I JUST watched a video by David Suzuki on exactly the same issue, and numbers. David Suzuki must have watched the same video you posted here.
He did it in a couple of minutes, but the same, depressing message got across. The only problem with these videos is you have to be smart enough to watch them, or seek them out.
Thanks
Robert.

Okay I'll do a search for that for sure sounds good. You have to have some patience to watch the whole of Albert Bartlett's video. When I shared it on facebook a while back only one person actually watched it!!!

I was listening to this podcast by Joe Rogan and he had an interesting thing to say which was basically that human beings would rather cling onto delusions that are comforting than face uncomfortable realities.

Learn how to grow potatoes I guess :)

I did watch the whole thing, right to the bitter end. Amazing old guy, lots of wisdom there, mixed in with some basic arithmetic skills.
thanks
Robert.

Thank YOU!
Yup, I prefer the old fashioned way. I went to the movie 2001:a space odyssey, when I was eight, and it changed my brain, and when I was older, and into special effects, I read about how they made that movie, and the fact that the Discovery ship model was 54 FEET long! It blew my little brain. Ever since then, I've spent a great deal of time trying to recreate that sense of scale and wonder I felt in the theatre watching it for the first time.
Thanks
Robert.
