Written in the clear, mathematical laws of physics, Nature, Nature's God, God Almighty, have spoken: "Mene, mene, tekel, upsharin." Meaning: "You have been weighed in the BALANCE and found wanting." (6) We have only a brief interval to restore balance to our civilization and to its relationships with the natural world upon which it depends for its very existence, before our self-inflicted death sentence is carried out.

As a concluding thought, as dismal as our prospects may appear, there clearly IS a proverbial "SILVER LINING." Humans are genetically hardwired to discount the future. Only near term threats receive our full attention. (7), (8) Given the very real prospect that our inaction may well cause our own PERSONAL demise, along with that of our loved ones, humans are therefore, hardwired to act decisively. What is necessary is the understanding that the consequences of inaction will likely be fatal to oneself and one's loved ones. Once this is understood, then decisive action is hardwired into our nature once the true immanence of the threat is comprehended.
