Multiple systems supporting human life on earth are threatened. We are running into a number of boundaries in the natural and social worlds. First, the financial system partially collapses. Second, energy sources like oil are depleting without yet a serious replacement, and other natural resources like fish, fresh water, minerals and a stable climate are increasingly scarce. Third, social inequality is soaring, bringing many negative consequences.
Analyses on these crises are abundant, so we will keep them concise, mainly linking to trustworthy other sources. We’ll only explore so much as is needed to understand why and how to deal with the changes these crises are evoking.
