The Guardian Sounds a General Alarm for Global Collapse

Limits To Growth model looking a little too accurate for comfort.

Wow.  The (so far excellent) model published by the Club of Rome in 1972 predicts a sudden rise in the global death rate in just 4 years, and then the beginning of global population decline - by about half a billion per decade - just 10 years later.

I hope you guys are settled in.  I'm not feeling all that prepared suddenly.


  1. Pretty difficult to plan for that degree of change. Best have a diverse bag of tricks, skills, tools and intelligent friends.

    1. That's always been my plan! But it's hard to feel confident when the entire planet is facing those sorts of tidal shifts...

      Best for you and yours I hope.

    2. We may become closer neighbors as things unfold :)

  2. My project list is so long. They all have to do with increased self reliance or local community. I'll just keep plugging away. Learned about the Club of Rome and Limits to Growth back in 1976, have never forgotten the warning.
