    Mar 23 2013: Hello Toine Stolk! Perhaps we all agree that we need to draft a plan for/against these types of possible developments in the next 100 years? It is awesome that we know we could do this, and more. More awesome still would be to know we know nothing... and think hard about these issues. Thanks for your input, best - Lydia
