Future scenarios are so interesting!I'm inclined to believe a massive and fast die-off will be followed by a modern world fueled by next generation nuclear,oil,coal,natural gas and renewables.This will be a new world with new and improved versions of governments and economic systems.We have been too influenced by our own life experiences and current belief systems that it's difficult to embrace "alien" ideas outside of our comfort zones.There are wonderful solutions already in place for some of our big problems including education and criminal justice.A much smaller population will be able keep our modern technologies fueled with a different energy mix that will continue to seek to ween us off of non-renewables and our food needs will bet easier to manage.There will be less stress on the planet so there will be natural healing of the air,water and land.The survivors of a sudden and massive die-off will be less wasteful and work to restore the damage we have done to the planet and each other.There is reason to hope for a better world.We are amazing creatures with powerful imaginations,adaptation abilities and a fantastic capacity to pull together and accomplish extraordinary things.We will apply old ways to our newer ways.Old social ways,old farming ways and old religious ways will influence and inform us as we rebuild and transform.I see it happening now even in the U.S.The are hopeful signs on every continent.A die-off is not a pleasant thing to anticipate and I hope it doesn't occur.But if it does there is so much we have that will influence the rebuild that is much better than what is happening on the nightly news.Big positive and healthy change is in the air.Take care!
