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
- 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?
