I think it timely to put this up. The world will continue. We must find sustainable ways of life.
It is like Jared Diamond concluded in his book “Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed”. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collapse:_How_Societies_Choose_to_Fail_or_Succeed).
In the concluding section Jared makes the point that we will prevail or collapse on the basis of our own actions; that is it is not a meteorite, or the like, we are worried about but things of our own making, like: climate change, biodiversity loss, over population combined with poor distribution systems. These challenges (opportunities) are of our own making and we can choose to solve them. Societies that prevailed in the past planed long term and changed their values. Read his book for further explanation.
As I stated at the start the world will continue. We must find sustainable ways of life.
