That there is
more Iron on Earth
than would be required by
100 billion human-beings
is a

Fallacy.

WorldNews Sunday 26 July 2020 –
“Earth’s Store of hydrocarbon-fuels is ‘fast-running-out’ –
and the big drillers’ and ‘frackers’
are “pulling-out”
of their commitment and ‘ownerships’ of ‘what’s-left’.’

Despite growing attention on clean energy,
fossil fuels still account for 
80 percent 
of global energy consumption and 
75 percent 
of greenhouse gas emissions.
Our fossil fuel-based energy system
comes at a massive cost.
Fossil fuels drive economic vulnerability,
where countries and businesses
are subject to volatile fuel prices;
many are reliant on costly energy imports.
Coal, oil and gas also increase human vulnerability:
Dangerous outdoor air pollution
due to fossil fuel burning
kills 4.2 million people a year globally,
according to the 
World Health Organization.

[“] With the Earth’s Lifesupports
now going increasingly downwards,
but the Stockmarkets all showing that
Longest-Termly
those Resources are going ever-upwards,
someone
needs to get-it-through to the Economists
that they have a fundamental equation
very wrong, somewhere [“]/
