Planetary collapse! "Tipping point before planetary collapse ‘is only decades away’"
THE Earth is within decades of reaching an irreversible tipping point that could result in “planetary collapse”, scientists warned yesterday.

They called for drastic action, such as rapid curbs on population growth, to prevent food supplies being threatened by major changes to farming caused by climate change.

A team of 22 scientists reached the conclusion by comparing the biological impact of past major global changes with current patterns.

The warning comes two weeks before the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, which marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark Brazil meeting.

According to the researchers, the report contradicted the belief that global collapse would be gradual or centuries away.

Anthony Barnosky, professor of integrative biology at the University of California, Berkeley, who led the research, said: “There will be a reduction in biodiversity and severe impacts on much of what we depend on to sustain our quality of life, including fisheries, agriculture, forest products and clean water.

This could happen within just a few generations. The root cause, ultimately, is human population growth and how many resources each one of us uses.”

Realistic doom, guys (population growth, food resources, climate change...). I thought about this more than once.

What do you think?

I suspect it's nonsense. Tipping point is a fallacy based on computer models but doesn't seem to be of much use in the real world when it comes to making predictions with any accuracy, or even figuring out why something in the past occured. It's simply an arbitrary peak point that is selected.

To be honest I find it hard to care as I'll probably be dead by then or maybe it's because I'm old enough to remember that we should already be freezing to death because of a new Ice Age by now.

These guys aren't really all that different from JW preachers who always claim the end of the world is coming on this or that date. And when it passes without incident they simply come up with another date.

Ok, then forget about tipping points and predictions, and let's talk just about BALANCE. Do you think the current population growth, the whole system, etc. can be like this for much time?

By the way, now that you mention an ice age, they also mention "climate changes".

Thanks for your participation! :-)

The climate is NOT the biggest threat to farmers and farming. Liberals are...at least here in California. The crazy environmentalists make it impossible for them to operate.

If the legislators get their wish, California will only produce 10% of the strawberries they do now. Putting hardworking small strawberry farmers out of business.
Truth is the new hate speech in this age of absurdity.

Certainly, the climate is not the only factor to consider, here, but anyway, why do you say that on liberals (I have no idea)?
