    The recent US presidential debates were nearly completely devoid of sense.  What were they even saying?  Was any of it important to our future?  How did any of their words get us closer to a vision for sustainable future?

    Of course, the answer is that virtually nothing in the debates had anything to do with a future based on careful resource stewardship.
