Humble suggestion: Let's start a lucrative apocalypse cult around this event. Who's in?

We could probably make some money.

So if the 1% crowd is prepping for the end, I feel like I should actually be worried. Also, this is super Omega Man.

EDIT:This article is so long, GS wouldn't let me post it.

Worth noting that -- as every farmer and construction worker who has dug up a cache of ancient coins and valuables will tell you -- every generation of the super-rich have been prepping for Doomsday on every continent for the last 8,000 years.

I'd gladly head up our new cult.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Everybody do the 'Deep Adaptation.'

I've been on the "Civilization is doomed because of climate change" train for about two years now. Maybe less. It's all those photos and video of the Arctic and Antarctic ice shelf collapsing that did it, though even paying a modicum of attention to the science (and the lack of political response to it) is evidence enough to me that a vast sea change is underway. As I'm fond of saying, we're in the paradigm, so we can't see the paradigm.

I comfort myself by saying the really bad stuff, the Mad Max, Omega Man, PA bad stuff won't be something that needs dealt with until after I'm dead, but papers like the one in this article suggest otherwise.

Missus RC and I haven't made concrete plans but there's constant joking about the WV move being prep for the coming apocalypse. And even my colleagues just kind of shrug when climate change comes up in conversation in a "Well, I guess we lost this one" kind of way.

Anyway, this is a fun read.

In terms of "not seeing the paradigm because we're in it," I think that only applies to stupid people. It's very obvious what's been going on for the last...not few years, not few decades, but 240 years. We're only now talking about it because, like bad doctors, we failed to diagnose the problem until the 1970s.

Frankly, I think we've had this coming for a long time. I'm all for the destruction of civilization! We're a wicked, awful race who has paved a road of bones and blood all in the name of same day shipping and streaming services.

Climate change is real and it’s a monster. No longer have we ‘proper seasons’ - December 2017 in Paris averaged 15°C instead of ~0°C... snow in April/May... floods in June.

It’s impossible to coordinate a seasonal wardrobe.
