There's another kind of problem, that eventually there will not be the capacity to keep all our homes warm in winter. There will not be capacity to grow enough calories to support the population. At that point there will be terrible effects. That is a different kind of crisis, and it's further away than the current one. We ought to be concentrating our efforts on facing that coming, real, problem. Instead we are pissing about with moron economics.
