I haven't in a long time. I do it myself, like most everything else. My Dad was an agronomist, an expert in soils, plant feeding and culture, and pest identification and control. He taught me a lot more than I now remember, but these new kids aren't being taught anything at all!
I suspect wide-scale famine, disease and war will solve the problems of climate change, bee collapse, etc. fairly soon by reducing the world's population to a more sustainable level. Not trying to start to start an opinion war here, but it really does seem like we've created high-level problems faster than we can solve them, and having never addressed foundational problems, they will rear their ugly heads as a natural response to those higher level problems.
Sure, and people who want to solve world hunger should just eat. Much as people like to believe that contributing on a small scale changes anything, it really doesn't. Meaningful change starts with organization, rallying, politics, not with insignificant ants. Convincing ten other people is ten times as effective as just doing it yourself, whatever "it" is.
Also, that's not what Marc wrote, he wrote that it will happen (automatically), not that he wants it to happen or that he wants it to be done (actively).
This happens at nearly every event. I remember the stories that England might step in to host the 2010 WC as South Africa were way behind schedule (England already having enough stadiums with the required capacity). I think there were more about the Brazil WC this year.
The 2016 Olympics will definitely take place in Rio.

Because they sound alike the words there and their are often misspelled. A good way to remember the difference is: The place "here" with a T is "there". While "there" refers to a place, "their" means belonging to them. For example, Their van was destroyed in the accident. While they're is short for they are.
May your pointers always be null May your ints always overflow May your floats always be imprescise May your strings never be terminated May your queries never be valid May your regexes never find matches May your markup never be parseable May your files always be inaccessible May your code have a thousand warnings
I'm sure you folks can come up with much better ones.
Try reversing them if you are in a good mood today. (May your strings always be terminated, etc)
