When it does - jobs will go - then re-appear - hopefully, with a bit of forethought - in new fields - sustainable ones. That forethought is best if it is us that does the thinking - remember us - the people ?
But I don't think we, the people, fully appreciate what sustainable will entail yet.

We need to downsize in many places - perhaps most - and in ways that will at first be very upsetting.
A grass roots movement, in effect.
