Discontinuity is the Job - by Alex Steffen - The Snap Forward

“When the going gets weird, the weird go pro.” —Hunter S. Thompson Today, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will release its latest assessment report, concluding that the largest peer-reviewed scientific process in history shows that humanity is in the midst of the greatest planetary crisis we have faced since we came down from the trees.

How ‘technopopulism’ took over

But these two apparently competing approaches to politics have started to merge. In Italy, populist groups the League and the Five Star Movement now support a government led by arch-technocrat Mario Draghi. Similarly, the UK’s pro-Brexit government claims its policies are guided by ‘the science’. Chris Bickerton: It’s a political logic.

Peak Energy & Resources, Climate Change, and the Preservation of Knowledge

What follows is from the International Energy Agency 2020 report “Energy technology perspectives” on how to transition to net zero emissions by 2050. This might require the replacement of just about everything, since power plants, steel blast furnaces, cement … Continue reading Posted in Airplanes, Automobiles, Concrete, Dams, Electricity, Energy, Limits To Growth, Manufacturing & Industrial Heat, Oil & Gas, Transportation, Trucks Tagged buildings, cement, dams, infrastructure, lifespan, steel, transportation. Is Global Collapse Imminent? Resources are being used up at a rapid rate, pollution is rising, industrial output and food per capita is rising. The population is rising quickly.

The 1972 book Limits to Growth, which predicted our civilisation would probably collapse some time this century, has been criticised as doomsday fantasy since it was published. This research paper has found the book’s forecasts are accurate, 40 years on. If we continue to track in line with the book’s scenario, expect the early stages of global collapse to start appearing soon. Limits to Growth. After the Anthropocene. The impacts of the late Anthropocene, the age of human dominance over the planet, are now headline news: this weekend Britain experienced the warmest winter day on record.

After the Anthropocene

Visions of a pessimistic future for present and future generations are regularly presented to audiences in public and scientific forums. From the IPCC to cli-fi, the message is one that constantly reminds us that the hot breath of the apocalypse is on our necks. The Anthropocene has evolved under the influence of a fundamentally flawed set of dominant themes and ideas. Lived experience Our cultural, scientific and technological evolution has taken most of humanity onto a path that reduces life to isolated atoms, transforms cultural and biological diversity into homogeneity, smashes symbiotic connections between species, transgresses Earth-system boundaries, and introduces toxic elements that are beyond the evolutionary experience of all organisms.

Why Worry About Collapse?

-based solutions can help cool the planet — if we act now. Projects that manage, protect and restore ecosystems are widely viewed as win–win strategies for addressing two of this century’s biggest global challenges: climate change and biodiversity loss.

-based solutions can help cool the planet — if we act now

Yet the potential contribution of such nature-based solutions to mitigating climate change remains controversial. Decision-makers urgently need to know: what role do nature-based solutions have in the race to net-zero emissions and stop further global temperature increases? Analyses of nature-based solutions often focus on how much carbon they can remove from the atmosphere. Here, we provide a new perspective by modelling how these solutions will affect global temperatures — a crucial metric as humanity attempts to limit global warming. Our analysis shows that nature-based solutions can have a powerful role in reducing temperatures in the long term. In other words, nature-based solutions must be designed for longevity. L'organismo vivente come ecosistema: l'ipotesi evolutiva dell'olobionte. Cassandra's curse: how "The Limits to Growth" was demonized.

The first book of the "The Limits to Growth" series was published in 1972 by a group of researchers of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: Dennis Meadows, Donella Meadows, Jorgen Randers and William Behrens III.

Cassandra's curse: how "The Limits to Growth" was demonized

Cassandra and the limits to growth. Sometimes I wonder how it was that Cassandra, the Trojan prophetess, had so much trouble in convincing her fellow Trojan citizen that it was not such a good idea to demolish the city walls to let in that big, wooden horse.

Cassandra and the limits to growth

Maybe she spoke in riddles and using obscure language, as fitting for a prophetess. But in our case, facing global warming and resource depletion, I believe that it is fundamental today to arrange our knowledge in ways that can be understood by citizens and decision makers. Wayback Machine. Episode #16 Paul Kingsnorth - Wisdom from a Recovering Environmentalist — Death in The Garden. On this episode of “Death in The Garden,” we interview Paul Kingsnorth, author (The Wake, Beast, Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist, and most recently, Alexandria, to name but a few) and creator of The Dark Mountain Project.

Episode #16 Paul Kingsnorth - Wisdom from a Recovering Environmentalist — Death in The Garden

The Dark Mountain Project is a cultural movement through storytelling, writing and art, centered around the Dark Mountain Journal. We spoke with Paul about what it means to be honest with ourselves in these times of social, ecological, and spiritual breakdown. We covered the issues of the current environmental movement, and the emotional processes of accepting that these “solutions” being given to us are not solutions at all.

Coronavirus : au cœur de la bataille immunitaire contre le virus. Totalement inconnu il y a six mois, le virus SARS-CoV-2 s’est répandu sur cinq continents et dans quasiment tous les pays du monde, provoquant une pandémie d’autant plus difficile à contrôler que les scientifiques ne savaient quasiment rien de ce nouveau virus d’origine animale.

Septième coronavirus connu à pouvoir infecter les humains, le SARS-CoV-2 est le virus responsable du Covid-19, une maladie respiratoire bénigne dans au moins 80 % des cas, mais hautement symptomatique chez 15 % des patients et très grave chez 5 % des sujets. Twelve leverage points. The twelve leverage points to intervene in a system were proposed by Donella Meadows, a scientist and system analyst focused on environmental limits to economic growth.[1] Contents History[edit] The leverage points, first published in 1997, were inspired by Meadows' attendance at a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) meeting in the early 1990s, where she realized a very large new system was being proposed but the mechanisms to manage it were ineffective.

As the Raging Twenties unleash a radical reconfiguration of the planet, coronavirus (literally “crowned poison”) has for all practical purposes served a poisoned chalice of fear and panic to myriad, mostly Western, latitudes. Berlin-based, South Korean-born philosopher Byung-Chul Han has forcefully argued the victors are the “Asian states like Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan or Singapore that have an authoritarian mentality which comes from their cultural tradition [of] Confucianism.”
