...be very concerned everyone.

Only the terminally stupid believe that contiuing to exploit finite resources as though they're infinite and polluting our atmosphere as though we can manage without it is a reason to relax.

I don't expect balance from El Reg regarding climate change etc. so i'll try to add it in the comments.

We can't live on a dead Earth, so trying to find a way to avoid killing it is a vital aim. Flawed and frustratingly slow though the political process is, it's the only process we have.

We are currently in overshoot. The next stage is collapse, and arguably this is happening in many parts of the world as water and land resources disappear rendering large populations destitute.

Superhero oil-burping algae will save the world

I was with you right up until the end. Unfortunately there are two finite resources we will still rely on.

One is the stuff of which things are made. the tnsions between china and japan for example illustrate how important access to natural resources used in electronics can be to a nation's prosperity.

The other 'resource' is the waste disposal capability of the planet and its ecosystem.

A renewable energy powered future is attractive, but it certainly doesn't mean that the concept of 'sustinability' becomes redundant.

In fact, if energy is no longer a constraint, the rate at which the resources mentioned become depleted will doubtless accelerate.
