Yoda the Pez is Refillable. Which means that once you pop the last one into your mouth you simply refill Yoda and chomp away. You can do this for as long as your teeth don’t rot, you have money and Yoda continues to work.

The Earth is non refillable. This means once we have sucked everything out we just get to throw Her away. It won’t matter if we still have machines to dig and drill. It won’t matter if we have investment capital. Once we use up the resources… that’s it, game over, no food, no shelter, no nothing! Folks this is not rocket science. It is as simple as 10 – 10 = 0 and 0 = starvation and death.
Luckily there is a real simple solution. We need to replace what we take. When we cut down a tree we need to plant a tree. If we dam up a river for hydro we have to find a way to replace the upstream and downstream habitat so we do not loose the biodiversity. We cannot rip up the Boreal Forest which is one of the Earths great air and water filters to produce synthetic fuel which is the worlds dirtiest carbon based fuel. We can’t do it because 10 – 20 = (-10) and that means we loose our clean air and water to produce black death. Like I said it is not rocket science.
We need to change our way of living or change living for dying.
