        Message 22 - Intervention by Thomas Ilyan

Everyone seems to be advocating palliatives when it is already too late.
Some were advocating those things forty years ago, and then ten years ago
were drawing plans to enable some Earthlife to survive the coming man-made
eco-catastrophe.

I am an optimist... I believe that it will be possible for some Life to
survive on Earth despite the worst endeavours of the overpopulating humans.
But it may be too late already.

One thing needed by those who are not putting their heads in the sand is a
solar panel that will pass the ordinary sunlight that grows plants, and
converts the UV light that burns plants into electricity.
