Global change Societal collapse more likely and quicker than we would like to know?
I did an advanced search and so far no one seems to have picked this article down here, and as the topic is Doomy, I thought GLPers might like it, even if no one believes in globla warming.

Dr. Jem Bendell, a researcher of University of Cumbria in the UK, and founder of the IFLAS (Institute for Leadership and Sustainability) within the same University, by the end of 2017 took a sabatical break and spent some time getting to the bottom of the understanding of current climate change science.

Product of this deep analysis he produced a review paper that is being called "The Climate Change Paper So Depressing It's Sending People to Therapy", and has already altered, some times radically, the lives of people that have read it.

GLP is like a diamond mine of information, in the sense that you have to shovel mountains of crap to find the diamonds, but it's still worth the pain.

Extract From the Vice.com article(much less tha 50% so please don't ban me for copyright violation!!!) Slightly edited for protection of the name of the interviewee:

...N.S. a 31-year-old high school life coach from Hamilton, Canada, was recommended the paper by a local environmental activist. Reading it sent him spiralling into depression. "I guess in some ways it felt like I was diagnosed with a terminal illness," he tells me. "If I'm being honest, it was a mix of heartbreaking sadness and extreme anger."

S. felt so low that he sought help from a climate grief support group organised by 350.org, the global grassroots climate movement. "I had attended counselling in the past for other issues, but never a group session, and thought it might be something helpful for me," he tells me. Did it help? "I'm not sure I'd say it alleviated my grief, but it was definitely comforting to be around people who understood what I was feeling."

And therein lies the problem with "Deep Adaptation": if you accept that the paper is entirely correct in its prediction of collapse, how do you move on with your life? How do you even get out of bed in the morning?

All great truths begin as Blasphemies.

Collapse will not be from the overhyped (non)manmade climate change. It will be due to the corrupt ponzi scheme central banks.
