2144. Big forces

Look at large scale hard to change facts.

The causes of our current predicament..

  • population plus coal (later, oil) lead to increase in population leads to increased co2 in the atmosphere lead to environmental collapse lead to inability to support population.
  •  add human nature:  status  seeking, clever, technology, individualism…

the rest is details.

Therefore  what to do…? What can change the scale of these dynamics and alter the outcome?

Is it like

  • Fall of Rome
  • French Revolution
  • WW1,2
  • Collapse of complex societies
  • Toynbee’s failed empires (all of them)

Is there a technocratic democratic broad distribution post work new human centered solution possible? Can we fit humanity to a post carbon world?
