A Four-Point Plan for ESA
Return of the limits to growth argument
A new paper by three researchers at the University of Maryland Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science purports to show how our civilisation could suffer collapse.
Why does the scenario of liberal democratic capitalist civilisation verging on collapse have such a powerful resonance with the public? It is surely because nobody can see the new technologies or the new resources they could unlock. Therefore those of us who look forward to an infinite human future in space need to press the urgent demand that our public space institutions, including the European Space Agency, must prioritise the steps needed to open up these resources.
