A new study sponsored by Nasa’s Goddard Space Flight Center has highlighted the prospect that global industrial civilisation could collapse in coming decades due to unsustainable resource exploitation and increasingly unequal wealth distribution.
Don’t bother. It’s just a pile of the usual “we need to return to living in caves in the cold and the dark and stop offending Mother Gaea” bullshit. I’ve been hearing it all my life. The only thing that ever changes is the crap they drum up to support their thesis. One year it’s pesticides. The next, nuclear winter or global cooling. After that, overpopulation is gonna kill us all. Then peak oil. Then resource depletion of all kinds. Or famine and starvation. Currently it’s global warming.
And yet by almost every measure the global standard of living continues to improve. It’s almost as if these perpetual doomsayers are just looking for any handy hobbyhorse with which to haul their suicidal ideologies.
