The Long News

A three minute talk about gaining some perspective on world events.

Nice validation of my world view... I'd even have picked some of the same stories (my picks for the most important stories related to feeding ourselves are 'peak phosphate'and 'peak water')...

Though I would add that in 10 years, many of those people who didn't die in a plane crash, and their friends and families, will probably still be grateful for that, and maybe one of them will be the activist that convinces the world to abandon consumerism and we will celebtrate Hudson Day. The long view back helps us decide which news mattered :-)
