[at-l] Beware . . . . PC's

Anyone seen the newest issue of Backpacker Magazine?  Thom Hogan's editorial
speaks to the point quite well.

He states that part/most of the reason for the haze in the sky on his 2050
ThruHike is because the fossil fuel power plants never could be completely
replaced by other means of electricity because so many people insisted on
having PC's everywhere they went.  All that electricity has to come from
somewhere for them to run.  Everytime a new form of energy was discovered,
there was too much demand for existing power and the older plants could
never be phased out.

Interesting thought.

Who'll be around in 2050 to talk about it on this elist?

Notme, Coosa
