Is your decision to "reject doom and gloom" based on technological facts or
a desire to avoid facing the truth?  Did Mark or anyone else suggest we
should NOT look at reduced consumption and alternatives?  While Mark may
have a penchant for presenting "worse case scenarios," the benefit of doing
so is that it forces one to look carefully at the facts and plan
accordingly.  To do so is to be neither pessimistic or optimistic, but
responsible in the only way one can be responsible - by looking the truth
squarely in the eye and not flinching.
