Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

No, I Don't

According to the Profile of the blog Casaubon's Book:

Sooner or later things that have no future just stop. We all know intellectually that we can't all live and consume like middle class Americans, that our kids are going to have a harder time because of our way of life, that Empires end and ecological disasters cause things to come to hard stops.
Wrong. Peak oil? A triviality. The total amount of energy in uranium far exceeds that of oil and the amount in sunlight is greater still. Global warming? Easily reversed (if it should turn out to be somehow harmful) once fossil fuels becomes obsolete. (Actually, they're already obsolete but for the opposition of Luddites.) Ecological disasters? The biosphere picks itself up, dusts itself off, and starts over.

I won't argue with the “Empires end” claim but I think that's a good thing.

And furthermore …

Isn't a locavore blog on Science Blogs a bit like having an astrology or creationist blog?
