basilik, I wasn't having a go at you or anything ^^;
if you want to see some positive instead of looking at all the doom and gloom, some countries in Europe and very active in switching things around very effectively ( I've heard Germany in particular).
Reality is, people & governments are changing. Slowly yes, but it is change. I personally don't believe we are all 'doomed'. Looking at history, we are very adaptive creatures, we'll pull through.
Besides? What are you hearing that is saying that we are doomed? Reality is we will be forced to change our habits and therefore won't be doomed.
