And if that fails ... we can always build large wooden badgers ...
It is also sometimes used loosely as a synonym for the totality of intermolecular forces. Van der Waals forces are relatively weak compared to covalent bonds, but play a fundamental role in fields as diverse as supramolecular chemistry, structural biology, polymer science, nanotechnology, surface science, and condensed matter physics. Van der Waals forces define many properties of organic compounds, including their solubility in polar and non-polar media.

In 800 yeats time either:
A) we will be extinct
B) reverted back to pre industry or in some mad max free for all due to civilisation collapse
C) so far ahead with tec zapping it a million miles from earth with a giant laser will be the best solution.
