I often wonder if future generations of human beings will look back on the near-exponential growth of our knowledge (and our gift for being as creative and innovative as we are self-destructive and short-sighted) - if they will think of us as children who lacked self-control, or as monsters who nearly destroyed this planet, or as pioneers who took great risks to make great strides forward? Perhaps we are a mixture of all three? Then I stop and wonder, that's if there are any future generations that survive our forays into forces we can't hope to control. Sobering thought. ------------------------ Driving through miles and miles of fertile farmland in Eastern Central Georgia, you may notice the twin cooling towers of Plant Vogtle off in the distance.
