When I visited Norway, I could see how the carrying capacity might be very low. My father wrote a paper when he was in college, investigating why my grandfather had left Norway. The family owned a very small plot (7 acres, IIRC), high in the mountains near Voss. My grandfather was the oldest son, and thus would have inherited the farm. But the historical production of the farm was so low, that it was heavily encumbered with debt. My Grandfather could see no point in staying in Norway. My father found a story about the family supporting itself by making bootleg liquor, for some period, because of the low productivity of the farm.
The area now seems to be used for recreational hang-gliding.
|Wow, Tverberg er fra Voss!|
Vossinger, er dere klar over hvilket ikon dere har avlet fram? Gail Tverberg, aktuar og minst like klarttenkende som selveste Miss Marple.
We need to have a feeling that someone is in charge. Thus, I agree with Voltaire: If god didn’t exist, he’d have to be invented.” We need a feeling that there is a purpose to life, and we need to get together with others who feel the same way. It is more or less irrelevant whether or not god really exists. - Gail TverbergBevisstheten har kun til hensikt å lure oss til å føle oss unike, og at vår sivilisasjon er unik. Dessverre har Tverberg rett, og vi brenner bokstavelig talt ut nå. Hadde folk klart å ta innover seg Tverbergs budskap ville de vendt seg til Terje Bongard for å redde oss, da han er den eneste som har motgiften til den gjeldsgiften som siver gjennom vårt blod.
Men folk har steinalderhjerner og tror de lever i en uendelig verden. Hvis du skulle klare å løfte hodet over Riftdalen, vil du se at vår verden er alt annet enn uendelig. Følg derfor Gail Tverbergs blogg, kanskje verdens beste!
