Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
interestingly, several of the actual scientists I talk to think that we are very nearly at (within a generation of) "game over, reset";

Well, the most infuriating thing abut this whole mess is that there is a scientific consensus that we're in the middle of a disaster, but the business and political class don't want to hear about it. And given the choice between cornucopianism and frugality, people choose cornucopianism.

In human terms we've been there before: Europe's 14th century. In cultural and ecological terms, we haven't.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
