"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting our high technology from WEAPONRY to LIVINGRY."
- Buckminster Fuller (h/t Suzy Waldman)

Extraterrestrial Intelligence

Dot Earth points out that the director of the CIA offers us intelligence about the three great strategic threats of the coming century. Energy, food security and the environment are not mentioned, even in passing. I believe we have the intelligence director from an alternate universe, possibly on account of some sort of transporter beam malfunction. Somebody had better tweak some knobs real quick and get the real director back.

We need intelligence regarding the planet we actually live on as opposed to advice about some alternate earth.
