"A spate of new scientific research starkly lays out the choice
humankind faces in coming decades:
By 2050, we could retain high levels of GDP, at the price of a world
wracked by minerals and materials shortages, catastrophic climate
change, and a stuttering clean energy transition —paving the way for a
slowly crumbling civilization.
Or, we could ditch the GDP fetish and enter a world of abundance, with
energy consumption safely contained within planetary boundaries, and
high-tech economies that support jobs, health and education for everyone
without costing the earth."

"This Nafeez Ahmed article actually presents multiples studies by legit
researchers, and is worth bookmarking for future reference.
Fight ignorance, because the ruin we’re careening towards is not “a
matter of opinion”."
