Enormous changes are coming

In this article from January 26,  2019, Chris Martenson says that enormous changes are coming, and he shows us how there are only two likely paths:

By Chris Martenson: Collapse is Already Here

Nature is warning us loudly that it’s past time to change our ways.  That our “endless growth” model is no longer valid. In fact, it’s now becoming an existential threat

The collapse is underway. It’s just not being televised (yet).

 

From here, there are only two likely paths:

(1) We humans simply cannot self-organize to address these plights and carry on until the bitter end, when something catastrophic happens that collapses our natural support systems.

(2) We see the light, gather our courage, and do what needs to be done.  Consumption is widely and steeply curtailed, fossil fuel use is severely restrained, and living standards as measured by the amount of stuff flowing through our daily lives are dropped to sustainable levels.

Either path means enormous changes are coming, probably for you and definitely for your children and grandchildren.

  1. “Consumption is widely and steeply curtailed, fossil fuel use is severely restrained, and living standards as measured by the amount of stuff flowing through our daily lives are dropped to sustainable levels.”

    I wonder, Carolyn, why our leaders do not see it this way. Why, is it so difficult “to do what needs to be done”?

    A drop in living standards to sustainable levels? It seems to me, hardly anyone is prepared for a drop in their living standards!, especially If our leaders do not have the guts to insist on it.
    What then is most likely to happen in the near future?
    Some more far thinking people tell us, something catastrophic may happen, namely the collapse of our natural support systems. . . . The majority of people so far resist believing all this. especially when the leaders give the impression that it is all right to just continue with our way of living the way it is. So, why change anything when we have such a ‘good life’; isn’t this the attitude of most people?
