Tipping points

I know you tell me not to watch TV but sometimes it’s hard to avoid with K. Channel 4 news last night had a piece about the environmental crisis, species die off. Years of pouring DDT onto the land has killed off biota. Basically the countryside still looks healthy but is effectively concrete.

I wouldn’t say I’m strictly an environmentalist or botanist but I am interested in how societies go wrong. From the way technology bites back to the way ecosystems becomes unstable like a game of Jenga or Kerplunk as more and more elements are removed.

I don’t like what is coming down the road. I think if ecosystems collapses human life might become unstable, ugly civil wars and the like.
