Buzz Holling – “On The Verge of a Systemic Crisis” An important quote from the father of resilience science – Buzz Holling (via Computing For Sustainability “Visualizing Sustainability“) Thomas Homer Dixon: “Why do you feel the world is verging on some kind of systemic crisis?”

Buzz Holling – “On The Verge of a Systemic Crisis”

Buzz Holling: “There are three reasons,” he answered. “First, over the years my understanding of the adaptive cycle has improved, and I’ve also come to better understand how multiple adaptive cycles can be nested together-from small to large-to create a panarchy. I now believe that this theory tells us something quite general about the way complex systems, not just ecological systems, change over time. And collapse is usually part of the story. The first response of many people hearing something like this is probably “that’s ridiculous chicken little propaganda.”

But just because the so-called “techno-resource-market optimists” can claim isolated victories (in a world of continuously rising energy availability), doesn’t mean that the debate is over.
