This week, Clay S. Jenkinson discusses our carbon-based world.
As he writes in his weekly column of June 14, 2015: "Life in the modern industrialized world is utterly dependent on instant access to affordable power. It is so readily available to us, woven so deep into our lifestyles, that we literally take it for granted. Our carbon addiction is total. We know all this, but there are times when we snap (or are snapped) out of our complacency and realize how synonymous modern life and access to carbon-based power really are."
