Impossible to fap to this post, you can move on if you’re after a quickie
Do you remember my pessimist post about the future of civilization, in its consumerist drive, on a planet full with billions of humans, based on the principle humanity would soon face several simultaneous shortages of both energy and minerals ?
That post (and its small addition) met several reactions that I definitely think to be actual “state of denial”, by the book state of denial.
Well, I’m glad to see the mainstream press is starting to talk more openly of that problem. This is a French newspaper called Science Et Vie, selling 330k copies last year to give you an idea.
This magazine’s issue of May 2012 made its cover on the shortages looming in, and spent several pages explaining quite clearly the problem, element after element, giving the expected remaining resources at the speed they were extracted, consumed and recycled. This was highly distressing, and the problem is that this was simply stating facts, not expressing opinions.
– If you’re French, please, read it – serieusement, merde, lisez-le ça en vaut mille fois plus la peine que toute autre publication du mois de mai !!
– If you’re not French, maybe that will convince you to take what I wrote more seriously into consideration ? Look, this isn’t internet geeks not seeing enough the light of day who are flipping out, this is going mainstream.
You can’t brush that problem off with a simple act of faith in the potential rise of technologies not existing yet (this is called suicide and irresponsability) or with an ideologist criticism of malthusianism (yep, the world IS a finite sphere, sorry to disappoint.)
