Video: ‘It’s architects who manage resources: we choose what we build buildings out of’


Nice try Duncan, but no cigar I’m afraid, as it is all too little too late now. We have passed peak oil and continue to rely on fossil fuels. If we had tried a concerted effort 50 years ago, at the time of that energy crisis, we may have had a chance. Jimmy Carter, God bless him, had a good go, but look at the Whitehouse now. We now have to accept the inevitability of human extinction and try and bow out gracefully. Let’s at least leave some evidence of intelligence on earth, for the advanced alien archaeologists who shift through the wreckage of our failed so-called civilisation. Those in any doubt of the hopelessness of the situation should view the documentary film “Collapse” (2010), not to mention the factional film “Vice” (2019). Bear in mind that Dick Cheney has a daughter called Liz, who inherited his seat in Congress. They will be in Iran before Christmas for the remaining drops of oil.
