Perfect storm

Global crisis 'to strike by 2030'

"It's a perfect storm," Prof Beddington told the Sustainable Development UK 09 conference.

"There's not going to be a complete collapse, but things will start getting really worrying if we don't tackle these problems."

"There's not going to be a complete collapse, but things will start getting really worrying if we don't tackle these problems."

Really worrying? Heh! Keep counting on that tarnished silver lining.

I'd reverse the order of those words and suggest that if we don't tackle (and resolve?) these problems, it will be much more than just "getting really worrying"--such inertia would lead to complete collapse by 2030, if not sooner.

That's only 21 years from now, and we would have to deal with overpopulation creating further energy, food, and water shortages within that time span, while simultaneously resolving the financial crisis to help pay for the solutions that would be required much sooner, and to completely reconfigure the bases of the world's interconnected economic structures to accommodate same for long term sustainability, while also dealing with the rising effects of global warming and ecological destruction? Good luck with that!

It's gonna be a hell of a bumpy ride into the near future. Let's hope we have the imagination and will to deal effectively with what's rushing up the road at us.

"You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead — your next stop, the Twilight Zone."

Paradigm shift straight ahead.
Watch out for falling rockets.
