Some Things Stay The Same

More Or Less

"Before the dawn
of the Oil Age, farm workers burned one calorie to produce 10 calories of food energy. Today, five to 10 calories of nonrenewable hydrocarbon yield only one calorie of food."--Julene Bair.

"If we didn't waste so much, we wouldn't cause as much disruption to the natural world that sustains us. The consumer economy that we live in produces money, but we can't eat, drink, or breathe money, so regulation is of paramount importance to future life on earth. We could use less and pollute less, and maybe have time to figure out how to mitigate the damage we are doing to all that comes after us."--Phil Seymour

American Muscle Cars Big In Iran

In the 60's, Persian students in the U.S. bought high performance, American muscle cars and had them shipped home where gas was 15 cents a gallon. When things got tough, and Iran was in turmoil, the car owners stored the cars until better times. Those good times are now, and these practically new cars are appearing on race tracks and drag strips all across Iran.
