Quote of the Day: “The Earth’s resources are limited, but … ”

“The Earth’s resources are limited, but those limits are the limits of the Earth
not of our abilities. And there are no known limits to our abilities — we humans
are not merely gatherers of a fixed supply of resources; we are discoverers 
and creators of a potentially unlimited supply of resources. That was the economist
Julian Simon’s still-under-appreciated point about the ultimate resource: intelligence.”

~ Stephen Hicks, ‘Hooray, the Earth is Not Running out of Resources
