(link to article on bbc iplayer (or whateveritis) +

- when i saw the brief blurb for this programme, i thought it must be some woolly new-age, theoretically implausible, really totally impractical, absolutely unaffordable and politically unviable scheme to do something truly worthwhile, but that would take half a century (or so) to achieve - if it were ever put into practice - and require the diversion of something approaching 5% of the "western" capitalist economies' annual budget over that time.


- how wrong could i be?°



° - guess your very best how wrong (or right) i was: then watch the truly amazing talk°°
°° - it's engaging, and it has enough clear pictures/animations even yr hmbl srppint. can follow it!
