Idiot "experts"

The Guardian has an article titled "Two-thirds of world's resources 'used up'" and begins:
    The human race is living beyond its means. A report backed by 1,360 scientists from 95 countries - some of them world leaders in their fields - today warns that the almost two-thirds of the natural machinery that supports life on Earth is being degraded by human pressure.
Think about this. These are supposedly "scientists" and "world leaders." I guess they haven't heard of something called "technological progress", you know, how people change the way they use the environment around them. Un-freakin-believable.
