The Great Descent

The #GreatAcceleration has defined existence for the last 100 years – the rapid and intense expansion of human impact on the biophysical world. What goes up must come down, and flipping the #GreatAcceleration graph starkly illustrates the #GreatDescent. Global modern techno-industrial civilisation is now collapsing, having destroyed and consumed the very things that enabled it – a stable climate, flourishing ecosystems, biodiversity, and energy rich fossil fuels.

#PeakCivilisation is long gone, and its going to be a rough descent. A #PlannedCollapse is a #JustCollapse.
