I wonder when the sky will quit falling?

Don Dix

The 'falling sky syndrome' is a very useful tool -- to just about anyone who can sell the prospect. Enormous amounts of cash await for whomever comes up the 'latest and greatest' looming disaster.

Find a cause (believable or not), create a concern, and exaggerate the consequences (or outright lie). There are many people and agencies (public and private) that are looking for a 'ground-floor trend', seeking recognition, as well as funding beyond imagination.

It's a 'no-brainer' -- in more ways than one!
