Being there.....

One is tempted to throw a shoe at the monitor and exclaim, "Where have you been?!" when reading the following:

The world is headed for an environmental "catastrophe" if countries do not invest in renewable energy, François Hollande warned on Tuesday.
Speaking at a green energy conference in Abu Dhabi, the French president said that people had an obligation to protect the planet for future generations.
"If we don't act, if we don't do anything, if we don't invest anything, we can be sure that we will have a catastrophe very soon. We have to have confidence to invest in the new energy. We can act together to create this world of renewable energy," he told delegates at the World Future Energy Summit.
One would, of course, be wrong. This is the sort of pablum which elevates the nostalgia factor to say 2002 or 2003, those were the days! Anything was possible in those halcyon days, a mere 2m could become 1b, just like that.....
Life is indeed a state of mind.
