Sacred Demise (review)

Kristin Sponsler, Energy Bulletin

If you are familiar with author and ecopsychologist Carolyn Baker’s previous work, you know she makes no apologies for the doomer stance she developed since becoming aware of "the invasion and occupation of Iraq, Peak Oil, a fraudulent 2004 election, global warming, and at this writing, what appears to be full-blown economic meltdown."

Humanity’s Choice: A Series of Exits—Not a Fork in the Road

Chris Clugston, Energy Bulletin

The ecological and economic prognosticators who warn of a potentially unpleasant future for the human enterprise typically portray humanity as being at a fork in the road on our evolutionary journey. They contend that we are at a pivotal decision point at which we must make an “either/or” choice between a positive future outcome and a negative future outcome.

Julian's tragedy

Damien Perrotin, The View from Brittany

It is, of course only a novel, but it offers a good rationale for us to enter politics. Nobody can predict what shape the future will take, and even if we can be pretty sure the present world is going to collapse, its demise will take time and it can be succeeded by a lot of things, not all of them pleasant...Yet we can work to cushion the decline and make sure that whoever will succeed us will inherit the best of what we have...This is not a very rewarding job and it is as likely to fail as to succeed. Sometimes it will leave you with a bitter aftertaste and even victories will sometimes feel empty, but it certainly beats replaying Julian's tragedy.
