Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Count me in the:

DOOM: Boom and Crash is a natural biological/evolutionary pattern and we are just following our programming, dumb as yeast; in geologic terms it doesn't really matter

group.  Question the "DOOM", tho', it's the way things are.

Species increase their population until they destroy the natural resource(s) required to support them.  Homo Sapians Sapians (sic) as  semi-capable, semi-cognitive, pack hunting, omnivores have a large range of natural resources available for exploitation.  Thus, we have pushed the planet to the situation it's in.  

The bills we've been running up: political, sociological, moral, financial, ecological, & etc. will be presented and they will be paid.  That's the way things work.  How many deaths will be tendered remains to be experienced.
