You will be challenged to face a reality so shocking
you might have difficulty accepting it
. 

While no one can predict exactly what the future will bring, we do know what time it is on the clock of the world: human systems are in global ecological overshoot and global climate disruption is locked-in. As a result the ecosystems we depend on for life and our complex human civilization are approaching imminent collapse. There are many signs this will not just happen to others, far-away, in some distant future, but that we are likely to experience it ourselves, in our lifetimes, at home, wherever we live. 

Yes, this is heavy; and we make no apology – there is no gentle or easy way to say this! Collapse will bring massive suffering and death; it will mean the extinction of many forms of complex life on Earth – potentially including humans.

I would extend my most grateful thanks to Neil Davidson
for his comment here 2 FB
, in which he drew attention to this most splendid initiative, in his comment that ...

The developed nations are locked to growth. They know collapse is coming; some even know collapse is here. Even Macron has spoken of 'the end of abundance'; yet none can act, especially alone. They are incapable of acting without losing political support (dumbed-down electorates, even in so-called 'educated democracies') and growth-oriented fascist and communist dictators in the rest. Too corrupt and in bed with corporations (limited corporate tax/ limited resource rent taxes etc) in virtually ALL governments, and where they do have a Sovereign Wealth Fund (Norway for example) they're still dependent on oil wealth and the vagaries of a complacent electorate... We are in collapse ... and need to start acting in accordance with reality.
