Myth of Unlimited Resources

It has come to my attention that many political figures believe they can produce unlimited resources and want to save the world from poverty. There is a great difference between having unlimited money and unlimited resources. Money is just a promise by humans to deliver products and services at some time in the future. No one really nows what the future will bring so a promise is not 100% probability. Nations go bankrupt, people die, droughts, wars, mistakes, and just plain greed wipe out resources which money is based on.

The U.S. through the Federal Reserve creates the money supply and they have very few resources to back those promises up with. It is only the belief that the system will keep going that motivates people to work for money. In the big picture resources are limited such as air, energy, land, and clean water. It takes energy to make water clean. It takes clear land to grow food. The land needs a good climate and water to grow crops. If we clear a forrest to make way for a farm we change the environment which provides the right climate. If we produce energy we change the climate, If we dirty the water we change the climate. Changes in the climate changes living things some for the better and others it destroys.

The next time government approves a project that increases population of humans at the expense of the climate research all the problems it creates.
