Martin Luther King Ahead of His Time

We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost opportunity. The ‘tide in the affairs of men’ does not remain at the flood; it ebbs.We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is deaf to every plea and rushes on. Over the bleached bones and jumbled residue of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words: ‘Too late… .’— Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gregory Benford - Audio Interview

We managed to grab Gregory Benford, one of the speakers at the Skeptic's Conference, over dinner on Saturday. You can listen to the 7-minute podcast here.

You'll hear his explanation of UVB-Chaff – a proposed solution to warming on our planet (also a way to prevent lots of skin cancer). This is likely to generate some ideological controversy, as those who believe we should leave Mother Nature alone take issue with those who believe we have a responsibility to use technology to solve our problems. Check it out and we'd love to hear your thoughts!
