This is yet another warning that the internet is running out of addresses, and something needs to be done. Don't expect action: Few are listening. There are times when humans don't want to hear the facts because facts are inconvenient -- like building homes next to fire areas in California or failing to raise levees around New Orleans. Yes, commissions study the problems and create thick reports, but nothing happens until a disaster occurs. Then, everyone points a finger at the other guy. It is one more example of reason limited by behavior. If humans were primarily rational, they would act. They aren't.
