WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

for Bari, who seemed to belive in technology

add stuff/ make comments....

Will technology save us? Can we reform the global industrial capitalist system to be more humane and less planet-destroying? Or should we take it apart? Where would we go after that? Backwards? Are we afraid of ruins? Do we carry a new world here in our hearts? Can we agree on anything? How many meters of sea-level rising can Hull survive? Can we learn anything from Holland? Bangladesh? Will BP (Beyond Petroleum) use its obscene fossil fuel profits to save its loyal workforce from climate catastrophe? Will Seimans be our saviour? Will BAE Systems (British Aerospace) keep providing us with asylum seekers from war torn countries? Will 300 people in Brough make bombs or something else? Will the british government ever take renewable energy and alternative technology seriously enough to properly subsidise it or will they keep going with farcical tarifs, inconsistent guidelines and meaningless, exchagable quotas? Will a global economic system bring us world peace or continued inequality? Will scientific advances increase individual freedom or state control? Will the 1% ever increase? Will anyone have another crack at communism? Will any more major ISMS come out in the next couple of decades? Will materialism and spirit ever be at odds? Will we all merge into 1 colour? Will we evolve gills? Would you like to live in a virtual reality? Would you like special thumbs more suited to playing computer games? Do you love electricity? Would you name your pet robot? Money on trees? Arms around memories?

SCIENTISTS SAY HULL WILL BE UNDERWATER IN 50 YEARS.
