Sounds ever so reassuring but doesn’t seem realistic.
On a related note: What if it turned out that our human technologies could get us out of the entire ecological mess we’ve created?
What if we were to find out that fossil fuels don’t pollute? In the absence of any other changes to the way we live, we’d still have a society of endless hot expanses of asphalt parking lot; neighbors who never see each other; totally car-dependent neighborhoods.
What if we were to find out we can live in a world without flowers, without bees Would that be the kind of world we’d want to live in?
