Yes, but luckily they don't *stay* that way for decades or centuries, 
and they are not global. Of course, if the Spike/Singularity comes 
along in the next 50 or 100 years, all this is moot. But I'd rather 
not take that chance with planetary havoc, if it can be avoided. 
Without killing 5 billion humans, and/or returning to stone age technology.
