Jeez, call it Existentialism, hope we won’t be calling it “Damage Control” in a few years.
- I doubt we’re facing complete extinction, dinosaur-like. But we are setting ourselves up for a massive lowering of population numbers and quality of life, due to mass die-offs, stupid wars and sheer environmental exhaustion.
- It can be abrupt or take a few generations, but if we don’t watch it and intervene quickly we’re fried. And it won’t be a Second Middle Age, as the environment/resource base will be much reduced: the world was fairly mint new in the year 700, nowadays not so much. Plenty of rubbish to go round tho.
- Paradoxically, the conservatives/climate idiots/carbon supremacists are causing the loss of the very way of life they profess to love. As sophisticated production methods and know-how are the first to go and be forgotten, no more SUVs boys, no more double-piercing-unobtainium-tipped bullets available anymore! Berks.
There’s a lot of different scenarios possible, let’s hope we don’t land in one of the really bad ones. I mean, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou is sort-of-OK, Mad Max is NOT.
