Nightjars: What's the mother of invention?  I can't remember..

You can't drive a truck off a cliff and expect to invent a hang glider on the way down.

Any decent psychohistorian could tell that we are approaching a Seldon Crisis.

More libtard propaganda.  The truth is we can grow as much as we want, consume as much as we want, pollute as much as we want, and there are no consequences. Because... job creators... Jesus... America!

Or maybe their calculations are wrong because they used metric dollars.

Exxon's scientists will soon de-bunk this.

But don't worry - NASA have also recorded a series of cryptic messages that we can open at various stages of the collapse to help guide us through various crises and thus shorten the period of darkness and chaos.

capt.hollister: By one life's coincidences I'm actually revisiting my old old classics in audiobook form and this is one I'm going through now. Unfortunately for us, it doesn't appear that we have a long-lived, telepathic robot to secretly guide us through the upcoming collapse and rebirth.

Well, the secret is safe here.

Question the source...isn't that what we are told by Fark when a study reports findings that are not aligned with the prediposed and immutable opinions of Farkites?

SESYNC has an agenda all its own.  Admittedly one that a lot of people are pleased to hang their hat on, but an agenda nonetheless.

Explain how a "green-funded" study outlining a scenario for gloom and doom, is different than an "oil-funded" study explaining how anthropomorphic "climate change" (or the current catch-phrase consistent with weather events) is bunk?

hardinparamedic: Too bad the "wealthy elite"/Republican response will be TL;DR, or write this off as Obammaunist commissioned class warfare tripe.

The word Romanovs comes to mind.

Too bad the Democrat response will be to create a new tax and waste the money in their slush fund.

NASA funded? Um, no. Some idiots doing a study based on a NASA model.
Society didn't collapse after the fall of Rome; it just changed. And it will again.

/but if everyone gets a handy, I'm ok with it.

Click Click D'oh: FTFA:  "A new study sponsored by Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Center has highlighted the prospect that global industrial civilisation could collapse in coming decades due to unsustainable resource exploitation and increasingly unequal wealth distribution."

Time to defund NASA.  Seems they've completely forgotten what their mission is supposed to be.

*sticks fingers in years, shouts "LALALALALALALA" to drown out scary things...*
