    We're going to run out on our lifestyle in 70 years

    Do the Math | Using physics and estimation to assess energy, growth, options

    Very interesting blog. Basically says that our standard of living will be exhausted in 75 years if we continue our present growth (and thus consumption) rates.

    I mainly recommend reading his first post.

    Does this make me an alarmist?

    Meh. Lots of things can and will change as time passes. 70 years is plenty of time for things and people to change.

    Exactly. I'll be dead which means the world makes a net gain in steak and eggs, since I will no longer be consuming them

    By then vegans will have evolved into cows and we'll have a new food source.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Ugh. I bet grass-fed vegans are going to be so expensive.
