Somebody Has to Say It.
This is one of the most riveting videos I've ever seen. In a half hour it sums up what you're seeing today and explains where we'll be over the next decade.
There's a growing chorus of knowledgeable voices warning that our civilizational house of cards is about to come down. These aren't weirdos, they're not 'doomsday preppers.' They're scientists and they're working from observation, experimentation, logic and research. Knowledge. We're living in a giant Ponzi scheme and our political caste think they can keep it going which is why we keep heading for the cliff edge faster and faster even as we watch our world starting to fall apart. We have gone from a record one billion people to today's record 7.5 billion people in just two centuries. Our rates of production, consumption and waste have increased even more, far more than our growth in numbers. And we think this can just keep going. Really? Over just the past thirty years we have lost half of all terrestrial life on Earth and we've lost half of all aquatic life on Earth and we don't even blink an eye.
