Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Here's the thing: the system we live in is terribly wasteful in ways I can't fix directly. It takes huge amounts of water to provide us with our tap water because of underinvestment in infrastructure. We drive more than we would like to because the public transport is inadequate. Our carbon footprint is large because fossil fuel power generation was the expedient choice for decades

like waking up to find you're stuck in amber...or alive in a coffin.

sins of the fathers...

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
