Tasmania and one or two other places can avoid the worst of it ONLY by working together locally.

When society collapses economists will find a market opportunity.

This ignores scale. If there were 1 billion humans instead of 8, every impact would be 1/8 as powerful. We are the Plague Species, having quadrupled in the lifespan of living members. We will NOT voluntarily shrink, nor will simpler living by those now comfortable occur by more than a tiny %. It’s wired in life forms to increase energy throughput and expand niches. See:

What does nature want?

It wants us to leave for good.

Well thanks very much for the earworm – love that song. Now my wife is convinced I’m going crazy and she might be right as I go round singing, without, of course, Nat’s mellifluous tones

Unsustainable
That’s what we are
Unsustainable
Near and far

Like a song of doom that clings to me
How the thought of collapse does things to me
Never before
Has a species been more…

Unsustainable
In every way
And as long as we last
That’s how we’ll stay

That’s why, humans, it’s incredible
That a species so unsustainable
Thinks extinctions
Impossible, too

and round and round.
