So what do you call me, someone who is worried about the environment but mainly because of the effects destroying it will have on humanity, who is prepared to embrace all forms of alternative power including nuclear if that will save us, and who thinks the best solution for the human race is to improve our technolgy asap, and to whom the idea of returning to the "golden age" of no dentistry and droit de signeur is an abiding dread? A "person hugger" ? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
