How much climate change trouble are we in?

14 Sep 2014

The theme of this summer's meetings of Transition Perth could have been called, "How much trouble are we in?" Several meetings outlined in depth the prognosis for our future, according to a 10-step catalogue of descending disaster written by Doug Barr. Number one could be called, "All's well" and number 10 could have been dubbed, "all's hell . . . or is going to be." (Number 10 included such merriments as long-term loss of power, food shortages, governmental collapse . . . the Mad Max scenario.) Members spoke to which number they imagined we'd descend to in the next 20 years.
