If climate change is a greater threat than terrorism...

Quote of the day from David McKay:
"If climate change is "a greater threat than terrorism,"should governments criminalize "the glorification of travel" and pass laws against "advocating acts of consumption"?
McKay's book, Sustainable Energy -without the hot air, is absolutely terrific, and something of a template for the other book I've been vaguely contemplating on the sustainability of ideas in the context of the modern structure of the intellectual property landscape. Empirical numbers are very difficult to come by when it comes to IP, however, so that's a project for the slightly longer term.
