Age of Stupid

I called this blog "Convenient Solutions" after the many smart things we can do that improve the state of the planet - and the state of our lives. Unfortunately, many of these things don't happen. In fact, quite often we do the precisely the reverse - as demonstrated in the new movie The Age of Stupid.

Set in the future, it asks the question "why didn't we save ourselves when we had the chance?". Or, as the narrator observes:
We might not be the first species responsible for its own demise, but we'd be the first to do it knowingly.
