    I looked at that and thought, "Oh, so the Duggar family will have to eat each other." Take that, Mrs."19 kids and I don't believe in a population crisis."

    Otherwise, I feel very concerned that my son turns 13 in a few days, and in 2030 I will be 78 and this is the best I could do for him. Who will lead us out of our blind stupidity on this?

      Hopefully we will adapt.  While there are many things baked into the cake at this point---economic decline, climate change, etc.---it's possible for individuals, families, communities, cities, states, and maybe even nations to build themselves some level of resilience.  As the Tom Murphy post I mention above indicates, it's unlikely this will be solved top down, at least at first.

      It's up to us.
