In the very first comment to Captain Erikson's Equation at Greer's blog, reader Ventriloquist posted a link to Nasa-funded study: industrial civilisation headed for 'irreversible collapse' at The Guardian. Greer responded that Ventriloquist was the 21st person to forward that to him, adding "Yes, it's an interesting study, and I'll probably comment on it in a bit."
Since this is right up my alley and Discovery News has a video about it, here goes: Has NASA Predicted The End of Civilization?
A recent NASA-backed study predicted that civilization is on the verge of collapse! We hear doomsday theories like this all the time, so should we be taking this one seriously? Laci is joined by Dr. Ian O'Neill, Discovery News' resident solar physicist and doomsday specialist, to discuss why this prediction any different than others.This is exactly what I fear and what Greer and others have been predicting for years. Time to redouble my Crazy Eddie efforts to warn people about it and work to postpone it and prepare for it.
Glubb Pasha? Awesome. lolReplyDelete
I had to look him up. He wasn't mentioned in the Guardian article and I don't recall hearing about him in the video. What does the second commander of Jordan's army have to do with this topic?Delete
