As common sense in science is lost with the continued stagnation of our energy base and deep troubling theoretical foundational issues in physics, so too, Civilization's Survival Parameters fly out of sight, out of mind, along with the values and morals inherent within new scientific understanding which new energy systems would reveal. The new scientific comprehension would eliminate the caveman 'club/stick' conflict resolution methods still used in the 21st century. Besides, caveman club/stick methods do not work well with nuclear toys, as they threaten all of humanity
Scientific Stagnation bodes an ill wind to evolution, sustainability, and survival as "cycles of humiliation, dumbing us down, violence, and Unrestrained Corporate Greed prompting resource wars with nuclear finality" join hands with global warming and ecological imbalance to precipitate the historical "rise and fall of civilization" - a Tsunami accelerating toward us with a far more spectacular event than the legends and myths of 'Atlantis and Lemuria"........ had more people known that Energy from Corn (or going backwards to a dimwitted concept of radioactive nuclear power application ) sounded a wee bit kindergartenish and senile for the twenty first century......the Future may have had a chance.
The Deadly Dangers of a Mis-informed, Dis-informed & Un-informed Population, Ultimately to Itself, History Provides Ample Evidence.
The Solution: The Promise of New Energy Systems & Beyond Oil Evaporates the Problem: The ill designed "Corporism: The Systemic Disease that Destroys Civilization." when devoid of a Bill of Rights for Human Life, devoid of scientific parameters necessary for Life's evolution, sustainability, and survival.

Beijing, Oct 5 (Xinhua) China Saturday criticised the US government's decision to sell arms, including Patriot III anti-missile system, Apache helicopters and other equipments worth $6.5 billion, to Taiwan.The Chinese government firmly opposes this action, which seriously damaged China's interests and the Sino-US relations, foreign ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said.Despite China's repeated opposition to the move, the US government Friday notified the Congress about its plan to sell arms to Taiwan.Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei has summoned the charge d'affaires of the US Embassy to China to raise strong protest against the US move, Liu said.The arms sale to Taiwan violated the principles set in the three joint communiques between China and the US, the spokesman said, adding that it mainly violated the Aug 17, 1982 pact.The US decision also endangered the Chinese national security and disturbed the peaceful cross-Strait relations, he said.'We firmly warn the US that there is only one China in the world and that Taiwan is a part of China,' Liu said.He said China has urged the US to recognise that it is destructive to sell arms to Taiwan, noting that the US should honour its commitment to stick to one-China policy.Liu said the US government should immediately take actions to correct its mistakes, cancel the proposed arms sale and stop military links with Taiwan.China reserved the right for taking further measures, he noted.The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature, and the National Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), the country's top advisory body, Saturday condemned the US arms sale plan.

BEIJING -- China has canceled a senior military visit to Washington and shelved other military and diplomatic contacts to protest an announced $6.5-billion U.S. arms sale to Taiwan, Pentagon and State Department officials said Monday. "The Chinese reaction is unfortunate and results in missed opportunities," said Marine Corps Maj. Stewart Upton, a Defense Department spokesman, in a statement. "The bilateral events affected involve senior level visits and humanitarian assistance-disaster relief exchanges that were scheduled to occur between now and the end of November."
In addition to the cancellation of a senior general's visit to the U.S., China will reportedly halt port calls by U.S. naval vessels, postpone "indefinitely" meetings on stopping the spread of weapons of mass destruction and pull out of a Sino-U.S. humanitarian assistance and disaster relief dialogue set for late November.
