"The greatest shortcoming
of the human race is our
inability to understand
the exponential
- Prof.
Al Bartlett
              "Can you think of
any problem in any area of
human endeavor on any scale,
from microscopic to global,
whose long-term solution
is in any demonstrable way
aided, assisted, or advanced by
further increases in population,
locally, nationally, or globally?"

                  - Prof. Al Bartlett
