    Human Population And Global Weirding

    The Unacceptable Collateral Damage of Overconsumption

    Daniel Christian Wahl, April 16, 2018 (Insurge Intelligence via Resilience)

    “…[Old structures are breaking down with the] impacts of unprecedented technological innovation and its rapid deployment in a globally expanding consumer culture. Exponential growth on a finite planet…‘The Great Acceleration’ is happening within the context of an expanding human population, profound societal and economic transformation on all continents, and — most urgent of all — a dangerous destabilization of global and local climate patterns. There is a scientific consensus that we need to take immediate action if we are to avoid catastrophic climate effects on the future of humankind, the diversity of life and the entire planet…The prolonged impact of an industrial growth society addicted to fossil fuels and the rapid extraction of non-renewable resources is pushing against planetary boundaries…

    …Rising fundamentalism and resource conflicts over oil, water and land have led to a series of wars which have caused humanitarian crises…Food, water and energy supply issues are already leading to localized scarcities, famine, and conflict…The advent of the fossil fuel age over the last couple of centuries has made available unprecedented levels of energy that humanity has harnessed to satisfy its needs: we probably expended more energy during the twentieth century than in all preceding human history…However, these gains have come at an enormous cost. The human population has grown by a factor of more than ten since the beginning of the industrial revolution in the mid-eighteenth century from around 700 million to more than 7600 million…We are currently eating into natural capital and eroding the ability of natural systems to self-regenerate…[Most of the remaining fossil fuel reserves] have to be considered unburnable carbon…” click here for more
