I believe the comment here is: "Well DUH!"

Yeah, I know, I haven't had much time to post to my blog of late, and I apologise, but we have been planning a trip (and making that trip) to the Andamooka Opal fields in South Australia (of which more later). Subsequently, haven't really been near a computer or an internet connection for some of the last little while!

Anyway, saw this article on yesterday and had to say "Well DUH..."

Of course it's going to take ages for the crisis to cool down. And I think it may take as much as ten years (as long as it took for Japan during their own recent recession) to come out of it all properly. It sounds corny, but my 94-year-old Grandma who went through the Great Depression said it would happen again just before she passed on Christmas Day in 2007. And she tended to be right about things like that.

Hopefully, the present scramble to produce results worldwide will continue and push us to make the major environmental and economical changes and reforms that we need to make to get us through the next century, let alone beyond...
