Ecological facts may throw you into a depression! Visitors continue at their own risk and peril. "Authorities" and economists who are immune to realities may safely continue without worrying.

Les faits écologiques pourraient vous faire tomber dans une dépression. Des visiteurs continuent à leur propre risque et péril. Des "autorités" et des économistes qui sont immune à la réalité peuvent continuer sans se faire de soucis.

A scenario is an outline of events - planned or unplanned, possible or probable - depending on the circumstances:
  • Humans, that is our activities,
  • Nature, that is all other life forms and the planet.

    The human scenario variables are:
    Population growth - Economic growth - Technology
    The resulting Impact is often expressed in the equation
    I = P x A x T I=PAT...

    All life forms, including humans, are normally in a dynamic balance in the environment.
    We are maintaining the balances with nature if we don't consume natural resources and minerals faster than nature requires for regeneration and replenishment.
    Presently, we are creating an ever increasing global imbalance because we are far too many people. We are using far too much non-renewable resources and destroying nature with other life forms. This is called "Overshoot"overshoot, with excerpts....

    eternal growth - the ideology of leaders Current scenarios show a world that keeps getting smaller because we keep growing, until nothing will be left and we will perish in a depleted environment.

    That is called die-off

    Article: Das Ende - The End - La fin - El fin

    We have it in our hands to stop growth and slow down our velocity towards total depletion and the end. We could even gain more time if we would slow down societal speeds, relocalise work and living, and demechanise. But it won't be enough to get back to return to a level of sustainabilitysustainability, because our overshoot level is far too high for an ordered contraction.
