Just wanted to remind folks about the other debt problem we are dealing with: GHG/CO2 emissions and global warming.
Apparently emissions are increasing at a rate faster than anticipated, more from the US, China and India, while the various carbon sinks that have taken some of the CO2 we have pumped out (forests, oceans, etc.) are not taking in as much as they did. See: Greenhouse gas emissions shock scientists. Plus, we have started freeing methane (30 times more powerful than CO2 as a global warming gas) that has been locked away.
This debt problem is going to be a whole lot harder to deal with if we don't do anything about it soon.
Thankfully, all our electricity usage is from wind power now.
