"Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem."

Believe it or not, all three are entangled.

The technology needed for health (molecular nanotechnology) is the same sort that indirectly lets us solve the energy crisis. And if we solve that, the revenue from energy pays down the debt and pays for social security.

"as we front up to the most radical changes any human generation has ever had to deal with"

We better be up to the task. The alternative is the population falling back to level that can be sustained without extra energy input. What combination of wars, starvation and disease will do the job is not certain, but the end result is.
