Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
See my diary
But suppose it got bad. Suppose it got one notch worse than you can contemplate.

I can actually live with the prospect of a massive die-off, even a massive die-off with ecological collapse. The world didn't end with the European black death of the 14th Century.

What I think I have a serious problem with is a collapse of civilisation to the point where knowledge is lost. Even worse, where science and technology themselves are blamed for the disaster.

By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan
