The Indy 500 is where the power brokers are today.
In the series A Methanol Economy Way Out of Here, we mentioned in the first post that "methanol was the required fuel for the Indy Racing League (IRL) from the 1960s until 2006".
Methanol is a clean burning fuel which powered the fastest race in the nation, all the while producing no green house gases nor carbon monoxide along the way.
Methanol fuel was used by the big human race for about 46 years in the most powerful and the fastest of the race's cars.
This human race is celebrated today at the Indianapolis 500, but is the celebration about something that is not really happening?
Is the celebration really about hearing "the bridge is out just ahead", then nevertheless pushing the gas pedal to the floorboard, rushing headlong into a self-induced Armageddon, gleefully accelerating toward the "finish line"?
We first posed that question and subject matter in Tidalgate, New Government Climate Change Policy: Triage, and Will This Float Your Boat, after hearing that the Obama administration had reversed itself to order full-on drilling offshore, onshore, and anywhere else, for the dirty oil that is bringing on the demise of civilization.
After that demise, when those who survive get to bury 5-6 billion corpses, or just dig the smell of suckcess for awhile, what will the new civilization look like?
In the posts A Methanol Way Out Of Here, and A Green Way Out of Here, we pointed out that some people get it, and in the post Someone Figured It Out we show that even some governments get it.
Let's hope those who get it are among the survivors, so that the new human race will be methanol based, or something better, so we can watch a race in a better civilization.
