Rather than desecrate the Arctic should business mine the moon? 27.8.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Corporates and governments are joining the race to exploit extraterrestrial resources in the face of dwindling natural capital on Earth An obvious solution to enabling a sustainable future is to consume less. This is a laudable goal but in a society driven by consumption, its not an achievable one. The worlds population needs to both consume less and expand its resource base and seeking energy and raw materials from space is one way to do this. But surely this could never be economically viable? At todays prices perhaps not. Yet in 20 years it is a safe prediction that increasing scarcity will have driven up the cost of energy and many critical metals by at least 10 or 20 times in real terms. Space access technologies will also have improved. By the 2030s or 2040s, obtaining extraterrestrial resources will be cost effective. Some companies and governments have recognised this future reality and are making ambitious ...

Over decades, for better or worse, the edifice of India’s foreign policy under successive governments has come to be built around one individual: the seat of that individual has shifted from time to time between the Prime Minister’s Office and the ministry of external affairs

Antony dropped the ball like India did at Old Trafford 25.8.2014 Rediff: Top Stories (India)
'Antony and I have been friends for over half a century, and I know the man does not tell lies. The problem is that what he believes to be the truth might not actually be true. He may believe that India needs the Congress, and that the Congress in turn needs the Nehru-Gandhi family, but that does not mean that India shares those articles of faith,' says T V R Shenoy.
