I'd still say that on a societal level we considered the health and wellness of the elderly during the pandemic far more than we did that of children. Closing schools was more about saving Grandma than it was the kids. Edit: at the risk of going on a rant that is going to engage people I'd say that this sub in particular is so stuck in their antinatalist bullshit that they don't see that the kids we have now are being fucked over. Cry me a river for the 80 year old covid victim while this 7 year old lost access to their school meals for breakfast and lunch.

The official US story is it was a Russian escalation, the NY times, our Pravda and paper of record is pushing this immediately a la WMDs in Iraq or babies in Kuwait hospitals getting killed. The amount of propaganda from every possible side has been on hyper overdrive from before day 1 and as such let's consider the following: 1) Why would Russia which could shut the flow off at any time destroy it's only conceivable wedge and source of leverage between Germany and the EU? 2) And the US has been on the record about not allowing #2 going live under any circumstance, including Biden in a presser 3) A proported Rand Corp documents was leaked weeks ago breaking down the German US relationship and why the pipeline would have to go, the downstream effects on Europe and the possibility of continuous cycle German industry being bankrupted and the capital flows to China and the US 4) There just happened to be a month long joint exercise between the US and the UK, a country which already has troops on the ground in Ukraine (SAS doing training and intelligence) 5) A US amphibious ship happened to be transiting in the immediate vicinity of the leaks right before the leaks were discovered 6) A USN Poseidon 8, a plane with a multi role submarine hunter, sub support and underwater observation happened to be flying over the area as well and continued until after the leaks were found 7) The US and UK have a documented history of such operations or failing to prevent attacks to justify escalating involvement what are foreign conflicts to include but not limited to the Lustenania actually being loaded with ammunition and ignoring a direct German warning ahead of time, the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, and numerous declassified CIA proposed operations such as Northwoods, and the breaking of Japanese diplomatic codes prior to Pearl Harbor (Not that Russia hasn't before, it blew up some apartments to go to war with Chechnya). Now I'm all for believing shit happen coincidentally, and it does all the time but when they start stacking up deep questions need to be asked and motivations questioned. This is some Epstein "suicide" levels of straining credulity. If we're going to inperil our troops and the whole damn world via escalation with an unstable nuclear armed power let's make sure we're on the right side of history with our motivations and quite frankly I don't trust Versailles on the Potomac and you shouldn't either.

Personal attack: > your ignorance < (mod:

Yep none of the above. My reality is actually based on historical precedent and how it aligns with what is going on in the world today. In the 1850s 4 million of my ancestors starved as more than enough food to feed them was shipped out of their country under the cover of armed British troops. Yet, it's still not considered a genocide even though a head tax on tenants was levied on estastes at the same time incentivizing landlords to evict tenants and in many cases murder them outright...but it's still not considered a genocide. 1947 30 million people starved in India when the same thing happened. Supposedly there was aid but no aid and that and six other similar situations in India under British rule are still not considered genocides. This pipeline and the war in Ukraine is forcing up the price of energy and with it the price of fertilizer and with the price of that food. People are already starving in Sri Lanka and tens of millions of the poorest people around the globe are going to starve this winter because of the war in Ukraine. Congress just passed almost $8 billion in spending packages and one of them was even called the anti-inflation bill. Now that's some reality if you believe that. They're stealing global civilization as we speak, literally transferring the wealth of the working class to the 1% through high energy prices and deficit spending...and in your ignorance you're mocking me.

I was codependent with my mother when I was younger. I finally broke free when she went down the Trump rabbit hole. I have cut off all contact and it’s never felt better. I am not saying you are codependent or that your mom is a Q-head, but that you have to detach and just respect their choices, set boundaries, and distance yourself if their decisions cause you mental angst or harm. You’re a good kid, you tried your best.

This megadrought is the driest 22-year period since at least 800 CE. The megadrought has prompted the declaration of a water shortage at Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States.

The Swedish National Seismic Network said it had detected two distinct blasts in the area on Monday. One had a magnitude of 2.3 and was recorded at as many as 30 monitoring stations in southern Sweden. The first explosion was recorded at 2:03 a.m. on Monday, and the second at 7:04 p.m. The warnings about the gas leaks came from the Swedish Maritime Administration on Monday afternoon and evening after ships detected bubbles on the surface. --- Please reply to OP's comment here: https://old.reddit.com/r/collapse/comments/xpra7b/new_tensions_between_russia_and_the_united_states/iq5cpe1/

That warlord guy in Kremlin, maybe? That KGB officer who uses every option he has to feed his hybrid warfare machine and spread fear throughout Europe? That very person who stopped the gas flow through NS1 a couple of weeks ago now makes clear that he doesn't intend to ever again send gas through NS1? Nothing says more "Fuck you, Europe. Fuck you and your sanctions. We're done doing *business* with you!" than blowing up 2 gas pipelines, now obsolete, one of which was the foundation and back bone of much of that business over the last 30 years. Nooo, of course not. No. That's impossible. Must have been somebody completely different.

Yes absolutely it's possible it was Ukrainians that did it or any third party actor. It's naive to think it was not done without US approval but I agree that they probably didn't do it themselves directly. NATO was already dragged into the war. You are talking about the risk of direct overt war between NATO and Russia rather than via all the proxies they are currently using. There is no reason this situation changes that at all, and anyway that dynamic is going to change this week with the referendum regardless. There is now less incentive (no incentive?) for Germany or France to make any deal with Russia, yes exactly. The US obviously benefits from that reality more than anyone as their entire global position requires EU staying on their side and not increasing ties with the BRICS sphere or with Russia separately as that would cause US hegemony to collapse which is what this war is over in the first place. US military is patrolling that region and they've been training Ukrainians on drones and focusing on sabotage prevention protocols- there's no way it happened without their knowledge. Again, speculation that the mods warned against so I'm saying that this is my opinion (and that of the Poland foreign minister who openly thanked the US for doing this) but I think it's pretty naive to think otherwise.

There's really no rational reason for any of the parties involved to do it - none except Russia. I understand the whole conspiracy angle that the remaining pipeline goes through Poland & Ukraine, but that wasn't Poland and Ukraine's doing-- that was **Russia** that made that decision. When Russia shut down NS1, that was a case of Russia making a decision to benefit Ukraine by basically giving them a transit monopoly. Why would anyone siding with Ukraine blow up NS1? It makes no sense for anyone other than Russia. It's an escalation, which is what Putin has been doing: escalate, escalate, escalate! This was done to intimidate the West and to show he's serious about committing more outrages, and that he is psychologically unmoored.

I agree: It was the Russians, but I disagree on the lost grasp on reality. Putin's a tyrannical warlord now, without anybody controling or slowing him down. He's leading not only a war on Ukraine territory, but also a hybrid war against *The West*. For me, blowing up these pipelines makes perfect sense: It's a huge *Fuck you, have fun freezing this winter while I'm burning gas in Siberia* into the face of Europe, especially Germany.

The hurricane that just hit you has disrupted the jet stream and is send a wave of arctic air that should meet up with the hurricane right around the time of landfall. If it meets it just before landfall it will not even be a hurricane by landfall. So maybe a very very weak post tropical depression could get there. Florida got lucky without the arctic outburst Ian would probably wind up a cat 5 at landfall.

Commentary regarding on-going conflicts has their obvious concerns about propaganda v. factual context or information, however they're far less controversial than some of the other types of socioeconomic impacts of collapse discussed here.

Additionally, I asked the other mods to chime in; if they haven't, it would stand that they generally agree with what I said (or just enough not to further respond).

How on earth do you figure Russia wins here? This kills their leverage with the EU. Way harder to force peace and territorial gains when you don't have the option to tell Europe "shame about the freezing cold, we could fix that for you real cheap if you'd just fuck off from Ukraine, how bout it?"

Sleepy Joe and his staff are on record saying this and yet you don’t think it belongs in the discussion? Pres. Biden: "If Russia invades...then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it." Reporter: "But how will you do that, exactly, since...the project is in Germany's control?" Biden: "I promise you, we will be able to do that."

>It's literally suicide, and he knows it. Not really. Russia has currently stronger nuclear arsenal than NATO (and it will be even stronger later with things Kh-95, Poseidon, Avangard, Sarmat, Barguzin) etc so they can calculate that NATO won't dare to do anything in fear of being annihilated.

It is asinine, but that doesn't change the reality of the scenario. Doesn't necessarily mean the US or NATO did it - maybe it was a non-state level actor using underwater suicide drones. Who knows. The point is, *someone* blew those pipelines up and it won't stay unknown forever. Again, I'll reiterate - we better hope Russia blew up their own pipelines, because attacking a sovereign country's infrastructure is an act of war. That's not a joke. We had buildings attacked on 9/11 and used it to invoke Article 5 and start a 20 year war in the middle east - remember?

In central and northern ontario, pre-settlers, salt came to the natives 3 ways. They went to salt rocks, got water from salt springs, or traded for it from coastal tribes. The salt rocks have almost entirely been mined away. That is the cheapest way to make salt if you have machinery. Now, the mines arent easy and sitting on the surface, you need sluices and equipment. Salt springs still exist, but we dont have a culture that values them, so... well, most people dont know where one is. Also, some are salty because they were springs running over rock salt, which has been mined. See above. Some plants are salty, if you burn them and consume the ash. colts foot for one. Generally so low it doesnt matter, but you can eat a lot of deer meat, who graze coltsfoot and other plants constantly. If you diet contains enough high salt animals blood, you can barely survive. This is a very high meat diet and difficult to maintain. All tribal cultures, even ones who ate a lot of deer, still put a lot of effort into getting salt. That is telling. So, if trucks stop running, if the supply chain seizes up, how will you get salt? Its required for humans to live. The word "salary" comes from it, as people were paid with salt, for this reason.

It's hard to imagine it's anybody else. Even if it's another of their serving wenches like Britain or France, it's still the same thing. It's always amusing to see us all hand wringing over explanations for things that suit the U.S objectives while furnishing their coffers. It doesn't make anywhere near as much sense that Russia would do it.

Overshoot retrospective : CyanobacteriaThe root cause of climate change and the collapse of our civilization is ecological overshoot. To understand the mechanisms behind this issue, I wanted to research previous events of overshoot, how they played out and how this will inform us about the future of our species. [Since the previous thread was well received](https://old.reddit.com/r/collapse/comments/xnmuhp/overshoot_the_collapse_of_the_saintpaul_island/), I wanted to write more about the subject. In this one I will talk about the story of the overshoot of the most important life form that ever existed on Earth, [cyanobacteria](https://imgur.com/a/ZleVzCZ). This was more complicated to research than the previous thread because because it will describe events that took place on a global scale over the course of hundreds of millions of years and I had to research elements ranging from astronomy to geology, chemistry, biology, etc. and try to make them easily understandable. If some parts are not clear, please tell me in the comments. **Early Earth history** To understand this story, we have to go back far to the past, to the formation of our planet and the origins of life. Our planet, Earth, formed about 4.5 billion years ago, when gravity pulled together swirling gas and dust to form a new planet orbiting around the Sun. Shortly after, Earth might have collided with another planet called Theia, and the collision resulted in the creation of our Moon. The first eon (the longest chronological division of geological time on Earth) was called the Hadean, because the conditions then were close to what we would consider “[Hell on Earth](https://imgur.com/a/0pnsHC6)”. It lasted from 4.5 billion years to 4 billion years ago. The surface was first composed of an ocean of magma, which slowly cooled down, to give rise to a proto-continental crust. It was also the period of the “Late Heavy Bombardment”, when a disproportionately high number of asteroids impacted the inner planets of the solar system. These collisions are believed to be responsible for a significant increase in the presence of water on Earth. The first atmosphere of Earth, mostly composed of hydrogen and helium, was completely blown out by the collision with Theia. A new Atmosphere formed, shaped by volcanic activity and asteroid impacts. This atmosphere was mostly composed of Nitrogen, as well as carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and ammonia (NH3). [I have found this graph showing the evolution of the composition of the atmosphere](https://imgur.com/a/N9In0MM), though I’m not sure what source they used for the percentage of each gas, so take it with a grain of salt. **Life begins** This takes us to the second eon of the geological history of Earth, [the Archean](https://imgur.com/a/I6Kcpga), which lasted from 4 to 2.5 billion years ago. At the beginning of the Archean, about 97% of the surface was covered by oceans. Paradoxically, despite the Sun being only 70% as bright as it is today, temperatures were very high, due to the high concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This eon marks the beginning of the rock record, and the apparition of life. It is not known exactly when life appeared on Earth, it could have already appeared during the Hadean, but the first direct traces of life date back to 3.5 billion years ago during the Archean. These first forms of life were single-celled (also called prokaryotes) bacteria and archaea which are believed to have appeared near hydrothermal vents in the oceans. It is believed that to feed themselves, these first organisms relied on hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which is a gas produced by volcanic activity, through the following reaction : 6CO2 + 12H2S → C6H12O6 + 6H2O + 12S. These organisms were anaerobic, as they didn’t require oxygen for their growth. **The Great Oxidation event** At some point, one of these organisms called cyanobacteria developed the ability to photosynthesize using water, turning carbon dioxide into food and releasing oxygen, via the following chemical equation : CO2 + H2O → CH2O + O2. This gave them a massive advantage to cyanobacteria over the other anaerobic bacteria : hydrogen sulfide is a scarce resource, while the oceans are full of water. Starting about 2.4 billion years ago, over the course of hundreds of millions of years, Cyanobacteria started pumping a lot of oxygen in the atmosphere. This was as disaster for the anaerobic bacteria that populated the planet at the time since oxygen was toxic to them. The only anaerobic bacteria that survived only managed to do so by finding niches without toxic oxygen. As such, the Great Oxidation Event can be considered the first mass extinction that ever happened on Earth. Since these oxygen pumping bacteria were so successful, they started spreading even more, eating more and more carbon dioxide, converting it to a layer of organic detritus on the ocean floor, and releasing more and more oxygen. The oxygen they pumped into the atmosphere also reacted with methane, turning it into carbon dioxide, which is a weaker greenhouse gas (via the following chemical equation : CH4 + 2 O2 → CO2 + 2 H2O). This transformation of the composition of the atmosphere cooled the planet and led to a series glaciation events.This had dramatic consequences for cyanobacteria, because they needed to feed on carbon dioxide to survive, and they were suffocating in their own waste of oxygen. Not only did cyanobacteria wipe out most anaerobic life, but they also almost wiped themselves out. During this cycle of glaciations, each time the planet froze up, so did the cyanobacteria, which permitted the carbon dioxide from volcanoes to accumulate and increase the greenhouse effect. But with each thaw, the cyanobacteria resurged, plunging the planet back to Snowball. It took hundreds of millions of years to establish a more stable carbon cycle, where microbial scavengers metabolized the dead material from the ocean bottoms and respired it as carbon dioxide to sustain a warmer planet. In the end, Cyanobacteria survived, and it remains the only organism to ever develop the ability to photosynthesise. That’s right, all other organisms that also photosynthesise like trees, phytoplankton, etc. can only do so because they co-opted the properties of cyanobacteria. The new availability of oxygen made aerobic metabolism possible, which provides much more energy than anaerobic metabolism. It’s also at that time that the ozone layer formed, which protects life on earth from dangerous UV radiations. Without cyanobacteria, complex multicellular life on Earth would not have been possible. You can still find cyanobacteria colonies to this day. They are called stromatolites, which are microbial mats; cyanobacteria just pile up on each other and form structures resembling reefs. [You can find some in Shark Bay in Western Australia](https://imgur.com/a/sk5hzQm), which might be the closest representation of the planet during the Archean you can find. **Conclusion** As always with overshoot, the mechanisms are the same : access to abundant resources and no mechanism to keep a species in check lead to overpopulation and overconsumption. The overshoot of the carrying capacity of an ecosystem leads to destructive changes to the environment and a massive die-off. It might be hard to accept, because we see ourselves as so much smarter than bacteria, but there are plenty of parallels between our story and that of cyanobacteria. Our species both found a way to use an extremely powerful resource that other species could not, namely oxygen and fossil fuels. It allowed us to reproduce and to spread more than any other species. This caused a mass extinction event, wiping out most life that relied on the stable environment that we transformed through our activity. We both got so far into overshoot and had such a profound impact on our environment that our actions changed the composition of the atmosphere. While cyanobacteria might have radically changed the face of the Earth, it did so over the course of millions of years. We have achieved something similar in a few centuries, which is a fraction of a second in geological time. In the next thread, I’ll take a look at the overshoot of our favourite species of apes, homo sapiens. **Sources** - [Ward, Peter & Brownlee, Donald & Krauss, Lawrence. (2000).

glorifying violence: burn them (mod:
AutoModerator

In central and northern ontario, pre-settlers, salt came to the natives 3 ways. They went to salt rocks, got water from salt springs, or traded for it from coastal tribes. The salt rocks have almost entirely been mined away. That is the cheapest way to make salt if you have machinery. Now, the mines arent easy and sitting on the surface, you need sluices and equipment. Salt springs still exist, but we dont have a culture that values them, so... well, most people dont know where one is. Also, some are salty because they were springs running over rock salt, which has been mined. See above. Some plants are salty, if you burn them and consume the ash. colts foot for one. Generally so low it doesnt matter, but you can eat a lot of deer meat, who graze coltsfoot and other plants constantly. If you diet contains enough high salt animals blood, you can barely survive. This is a very high meat diet and difficult to maintain. All tribal cultures, even ones who ate a lot of deer, still put a lot of effort into getting salt. That is telling. So, if trucks stop running, if the supply chain seizes up, how will you get salt? Its required for humans to live. The word "salary" comes from it, as people were paid with salt, for this reason.

The following submission statement was provided by /u/If_I_was_Tiberius: --- Seismologists reported underwater blasts before the leaks emerged. "There is no doubt that these were explosions," said Bjorn Lund of Sweden's National Seismology Centre, as quoted by local media. Few nations on earth have the capability to destroy undersea pipelines in this manner. The biggest winner in this scenario is the United States as the EU now no longer has the option to make a deal with Russia for gas. Perhaps Russia would destroy the infrastructure they themselves control, though this seems unlikely as the pipelines were already shut down. To me, this is more about making sure the EU cannot go back and must move forward with the current conflict. "Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhaylo Podolyak said the damage to Nord Stream 1 and 2 was "an act of aggression" towards the EU. He added that Russia wanted to cause pre-winter panic and urged the EU to increase military support for Ukraine." Again this seems unlikely as Russia already shut down the gas weeks ago. Regardless of who blew apart these pipelines, nuclear war is now closer than ever with Russia days away from annexing new territory. Remember folks, be especially watchful for propaganda in these times of conflict. Finding the truth is becoming harder and harder in these latter days. --- Please reply to OP's comment here: https://old.reddit.com/r/collapse/comments/xpnd2g/nord_stream_1_and_2_were_destroyed_threatening_to/iq4pza4/

It is asinine, but that doesn't change the reality of the scenario. Doesn't necessarily mean the US or NATO did it - maybe it was a non-state level actor using underwater suicide drones. Who knows. The point is, *someone* blew those pipelines up and it won't stay unknown forever. Again, I'll reiterate - we better hope Russia blew up their own pipelines, because attacking a sovereign country's infrastructure is an act of war. That's not a joke. We had buildings attacked on 9/11 and used it to invoke Article 5 and start a 20 year war in the middle east - remember?

It is time to start moving out, as last week was an important week for the Thwaites Glacier scenario. Scientists announced that the glacier is "hanging on by its fingernails" with the possibility of imminent collapse as soon as 3 to 5 years from now. Once the Thwaites Glacier (and adjacent glaciers) collapses, sea levels are predicted to rise by 10 feet or more. The article therefore focuses on the effects of 10 feet of sea level rise in 4 important East Coast cities of the United States: 1. Boston 2. Washington DC 3. Miami 4. New York City These cities will be severely impacted by 10 feet of seal level rise. and therefore it is time to start moving out now. Example: Most of Boston and Miami will be flooded out in a scenario where sea levels rise by 10 feet. CEOs should start moving their companies out of these cities to higher ground.

Societies that pretend everyone is atomized will never admit their role as global actors. If migrants aren’t your problem til they arrive on your borders you’ll never think about your part in them arriving in the first place. The rest of the world will see you guys as evil. If they behaved at actual slights as the West does to perceived ones, there would never be any peace. If Europe had stayed in its lane all those years back, these issues wouldn’t be happening.

The following submission statement was provided by /u/OvershootDieOff: --- New data shows 69% risk in Alzheimer’s disease within 1 year of infection. This adds to the progressive neurological damage being caused by covid infection. Early animal model studies showed Lewy body formation and amyloid plaque formation induced by covid virus spike protein in macaque brains. This could be a very real source of collapse - everybody gets dementia and Parkinson’s and dies horribly. --- Please reply to OP's comment here: https://old.reddit.com/r/collapse/comments/xovzzk/post_covid_alzheimers/iq0u1t7/

We got a few reports on this one, so I'd like to make a quick statement: the study being discussed in the video is linked in the description. If the video conflicts with the available data, or falls short of factuality for some reason, feel free to point it out and rebut so everyone can see it, but given that this is credible and widely reported news and a relevant topic, I've approved this post.

Seismologists reported underwater blasts before the leaks emerged. "There is no doubt that these were explosions," said Bjorn Lund of Sweden's National Seismology Centre, as quoted by local media. Few nations on earth have the capability to destroy undersea pipelines in this manner. The biggest winner in this scenario is the United States as the EU now no longer has the option to make a deal with Russia for gas. Perhaps Russia would destroy the infrastructure they themselves control, though this seems unlikely as the pipelines were already shut down. To me, this is more about making sure the EU cannot go back and must move forward with the current conflict. "Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhaylo Podolyak said the damage to Nord Stream 1 and 2 was "an act of aggression" towards the EU. He added that Russia wanted to cause pre-winter panic and urged the EU to increase military support for Ukraine." Again this seems unlikely as Russia already shut down the gas weeks ago. Regardless of who blew apart these pipelines, nuclear war is now closer than ever with Russia days away from annexing new territory. Remember folks, be especially watchful for propaganda in these times of conflict. Finding the truth is becoming harder and harder in these latter days.

Location: Finland I originally had much bigger post planned, but I'm just so goddamn tired to write what I wanted to say. It just feels pointless to say anything other than literally everyone here is on edge. Nobody is talking about anything other than the most stupid stuff you could think of. Hiding in their shells and what else could you expect of people. I've been 'dealing with' existential terror my whole life and at the same time it's fascinating, but also very terrifying to notice now everybody feels the same. It's tough to live life constantly in survival mode, and now everybody is doing it and it almost feels like something primitive is happening. Growing and consuming every little good thing life has to offer. I truly am out of words to explain what is happening here, and I know things are so, so much worse almost everywhere else. It truly pains me to know what kind of suffering is going on every inch of this planet and always has been. 'Human exceptionalism' is a disease in thinking which we'll never get rid of. People are waking up to reality what ever the hell that is and fascism is rising exponentially, like every other disaster we've created while destroying everything aroud us. Stay safe everyone. It's going to be one hell of a ride downward. Edit: Sorry for an uninformative post, but basically everything is terrible for everyone, but hey, still better than most of the world since luckily we have that glorious "stuff" here made by the hands of starving children. That'll keep us warm in the winter I guess. I just needed to vent and I hope everyone is dealing with life better than me. Also shout-out to the mods; you have a done wonderful job keeping this place together.

Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhaylo Podolyak said the damage to Nord Stream 1 and 2 was "an act of aggression" towards the EU. Ukraine has accused Russia of causing leaks in two major gas pipelines to Europe in what it described as a "terrorist attack". Are you dumb as hell? I don't know who did it, just making guesses.

I'm currently a public school teacher but want to switch careers and go back into tech/IT. Is it too late to do so? Will the market collapse as soon as I switch and then I'll be outta work?

Canadian Collapseniks?What news sources do my fellow Canadians use? I'm looking for current news (not political) on collapse, climate change, crime, social issues, and the like specific to Canada and Canadians. It seems almost every site I visit, I have to wade through garbage to find real news. Thanks.

Our current economy is diametrically opposed to keeping this planet habitable. Don't get me wrong, we will not sacrifice to save the future. If we were going to make the changed needed to keep our planet habitable, we will have to trade the economy for survival. Our economy is way passed the line of being sustainable. I understand what this would mean. I also understand that requiring these changes would be political suicide. It will never happen. One day everyone will have to live in habitats as if they were on an alien planet. Earth will be an alien planet sooner than expected.

"Overconsumption" is just an excuse to distract from Overpopulation and its role in CollapseOften when someone brings up the devastating effects of overpopulation on humanity and the planet and its role in collapse - many people will get foam before their mouths and scream "overconsumption" and claim that we are far from being overpopulated and that we could easily supply 15 Billion people if we just got rid of rich people. Please stop this nonsense. Humanity has needed 200 000 years to get from some 10 000 humans to 1 Billion in 1810. Then we needed just 210 years to get from 1 Billion to 8 Billion. Out of these 8 Billion people just 2755 were Billionaires. Even if each one of these would consume the resources of 50 000 Middle Class people - their disappearance would free resources for 140 Million people - less than 2% of world population. Then theres some 60 Million Millionaires around the globe. Even if each one of these would consume the resources of 30 Middle Class people - their disapperance would free resources for 1,8 Billion people - 22% of world population. But since world population continues to grow at 80 Million people a year - the effects would be negatet by population growth within just 25 years. So even after getting rid of all Millionaires and Billionaires - Population growth would lead to the same resource consumption just 25 years later. Also its not true that only rich countries are responsible for overconsumption. Many Millionaries and Billionaires are located in India and China. China and India each have over 100 000 Million households that live a Western Middle Class Life and sustain a Western Middle Class level of resource consumption. And of the worst global polluters - most are poorer countries who are not overconsumers: 1. China, with more than 10,065 million tons of CO2 released 2. United States, with 5,416 million tons of CO2 3. India, with 2,654 million tons of CO2 4. Russia, with 1,711 million tons of CO2 5. Japan, 1,162 million tons of CO2 6. Germany, 759 million tons of CO2 7. Iran, 720 million tons of CO2 8. South Korea, 659 million tons of CO2 9. Saudi Arabia, 621 million tons of CO2 10. Indonesia, 615 million tons of CO2 So if we want 10 Billion people on this globe - everyone would have to live a poor life - and we would probably still be collapsing. If we want for most people to have a good and decent live - and a sustainable level of resource consumption, pollution, deforestation, food production ect preventing Collapse - then everything over 4 Billion is just not possible. So overconsumption makes the problem of overpopulation worse - but its not the main problem - its having 8 Billion people on this planet. Its having too many people on this world - thats causing our collapse.

Overshoot retrospective : CyanobacteriaThe root cause of climate change and the collapse of our civilization is ecological overshoot. To understand the mechanisms behind this issue, I wanted to research previous events of overshoot, how they played out and how this will inform us about the future of our species. [Since the previous thread was well received](https://old.reddit.com/r/collapse/comments/xnmuhp/overshoot_the_collapse_of_the_saintpaul_island/), I wanted to write more about the subject. In this one I will talk about the story of the overshoot of the most important life form that ever existed on Earth, [cyanobacteria](https://imgur.com/a/ZleVzCZ). This was more complicated to research than the previous thread because because it will describe events that took place on a global scale over the course of hundreds of millions of years and I had to research elements ranging from astronomy to geology, chemistry, biology, etc. and try to make them easily understandable. If some parts are not clear, please tell me in the comments. **Early Earth history** To understand this story, we have to go back far to the past, to the formation of our planet and the origins of life. Our planet, Earth, formed about 4.5 billion years ago, when gravity pulled together swirling gas and dust to form a new planet orbiting around the Sun. Shortly after, Earth might have collided with another planet called Theia, and the collision resulted in the creation of our Moon. The first eon (the longest chronological division of geological time on Earth) was called the Hadean, because the conditions then were close to what we would consider “[Hell on Earth](https://imgur.com/a/0pnsHC6)”. It lasted from 4.5 billion years to 4 billion years ago. The surface was first composed of an ocean of magma, which slowly cooled down, to give rise to a proto-continental crust. It was also the period of the “Late Heavy Bombardment”, when a disproportionately high number of asteroids impacted the inner planets of the solar system. These collisions are believed to be responsible for a significant increase in the presence of water on Earth. The first atmosphere of Earth, mostly composed of hydrogen and helium, was completely blown out by the collision with Theia. A new Atmosphere formed, shaped by volcanic activity and asteroid impacts. This atmosphere was mostly composed of Nitrogen, as well as carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and ammonia (NH3). [I have found this graph showing the evolution of the composition of the atmosphere](https://imgur.com/a/N9In0MM), though I’m not sure what source they used for the percentage of each gas, so take it with a grain of salt. **Life begins** This takes us to the second eon of the geological history of Earth, [the Archean](https://imgur.com/a/I6Kcpga), which lasted from 4 to 2.5 billion years ago. At the beginning of the Archean, about 97% of the surface was covered by oceans. Paradoxically, despite the Sun being only 70% as bright as it is today, temperatures were very high, due to the high concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This eon marks the beginning of the rock record, and the apparition of life. It is not known exactly when life appeared on Earth, it could have already appeared during the Hadean, but the first direct traces of life date back to 3.5 billion years ago during the Archean. These first forms of life were single-celled (also called prokaryotes) bacteria and archaea which are believed to have appeared near hydrothermal vents in the oceans. It is believed that to feed themselves, these first organisms relied on hydrogen sulfide (H2S), which is a gas produced by volcanic activity, through the following reaction : 6CO2 + 12H2S → C6H12O6 + 6H2O + 12S. These organisms were anaerobic, as they didn’t require oxygen for their growth. **The Great Oxidation event** At some point, one of these organisms called cyanobacteria developed the ability to photosynthesize using water, turning carbon dioxide into food and releasing oxygen, via the following chemical equation : CO2 + H2O → CH2O + O2. This gave them a massive advantage to cyanobacteria over the other anaerobic bacteria : hydrogen sulfide is a scarce resource, while the oceans are full of water. Starting about 2.4 billion years ago, over the course of hundreds of millions of years, Cyanobacteria started pumping a lot of oxygen in the atmosphere. This was as disaster for the anaerobic bacteria that populated the planet at the time since oxygen was toxic to them. The only anaerobic bacteria that survived only managed to do so by finding niches without toxic oxygen. As such, the Great Oxidation Event can be considered the first mass extinction that ever happened on Earth. Since these oxygen pumping bacteria were so successful, they started spreading even more, eating more and more carbon dioxide, converting it to a layer of organic detritus on the ocean floor, and releasing more and more oxygen. The oxygen they pumped into the atmosphere also reacted with methane, turning it into carbon dioxide, which is a weaker greenhouse gas (via the following chemical equation : CH4 + 2 O2 → CO2 + 2 H2O). This transformation of the composition of the atmosphere cooled the planet and led to a series glaciation events.This had dramatic consequences for cyanobacteria, because they needed to feed on carbon dioxide to survive, and they were suffocating in their own waste of oxygen. Not only did cyanobacteria wipe out most anaerobic life, but they also almost wiped themselves out. During this cycle of glaciations, each time the planet froze up, so did the cyanobacteria, which permitted the carbon dioxide from volcanoes to accumulate and increase the greenhouse effect. But with each thaw, the cyanobacteria resurged, plunging the planet back to Snowball. It took hundreds of millions of years to establish a more stable carbon cycle, where microbial scavengers metabolized the dead material from the ocean bottoms and respired it as carbon dioxide to sustain a warmer planet. In the end, Cyanobacteria survived, and it remains the only organism to ever develop the ability to photosynthesise. That’s right, all other organisms that also photosynthesise like trees, phytoplankton, etc. can only do so because they co-opted the properties of cyanobacteria. The new availability of oxygen made aerobic metabolism possible, which provides much more energy than anaerobic metabolism. It’s also at that time that the ozone layer formed, which protects life on earth from dangerous UV radiations. Without cyanobacteria, complex multicellular life on Earth would not have been possible. You can still find cyanobacteria colonies to this day. They are called stromatolites, which are microbial mats; cyanobacteria just pile up on each other and form structures resembling reefs. [You can find some in Shark Bay in Western Australia](https://imgur.com/a/sk5hzQm), which might be the closest representation of the planet during the Archean you can find. **Conclusion** As always with overshoot, the mechanisms are the same : access to abundant resources and no mechanism to keep a species in check lead to overpopulation and overconsumption. The overshoot of the carrying capacity of an ecosystem leads to destructive changes to the environment and a massive die-off. It might be hard to accept, because we see ourselves as so much smarter than bacteria, but there are plenty of parallels between our story and that of cyanobacteria. Our species both found a way to use an extremely powerful resource that other species could not, namely oxygen and fossil fuels. It allowed us to reproduce and to spread more than any other species. This caused a mass extinction event, wiping out most life that relied on the stable environment that we transformed through our activity. We both got so far into overshoot and had such a profound impact on our environment that our actions changed the composition of the atmosphere. While cyanobacteria might have radically changed the face of the Earth, it did so over the course of millions of years. We have achieved something similar in a few centuries, which is a fraction of a second in geological time. In the next thread, I’ll take a look at the overshoot of our favourite species of apes, homo sapiens. **Sources** - [Ward, Peter & Brownlee, Donald & Krauss, Lawrence. (2000).

Has the UK ever called for a serious no confidence vote against an PM this quickly before? It’s like y’all are speed running through the conservative ghouls at this point. Not that I think parliament is wrong to do it. Liz Truss has managed the seemingly impossible by announcing tax cuts that actually piss off the markets, sending the cost of living crisis into overdrive…which is impressive given how bad it was before. Wishing you all a mild winter.

It's quite literally the history of virus evolution and biological evolution. What is the purpose of a virus? What is it trying to do? Spread, survive, stay alive. If it kills it defeats it's purpose. Historically when a virus mutates it becomes more infectious and less deadly, thus further achieving it's [goals](https://news.northeastern.edu/2021/12/13/virus-evolution/) Hell, dont take my word for it. Look no further than the [Spanish flu](https://www.history.com/news/1918-flu-pandemic-never-ended). One of the most deadly pandemics in history, which killed over 50 million people in 1918. You now know it as THE FLU. It never went away, it evolved. It's why Covid isnt a worry anymore. The pandemic is over. It's mutated beyond the concern. Will it still kill people? You bet. Just like the flu. As the years go by it will evolve and adapt to kill less and transmit more, thus more readily achieving it's goal. To continue living and spreading.

The adverse reactions to vaccines is an astronomically low number compared to infections and the side effects. The "overwhelming" is a false flag of deniers. The number of unvaccinated in ICU and dying is much higher percentage. If 100 people are vaccinated and 15 are not (pretty much the global averages) and 10 vaccinated and 5 unvaccinated are in hospital, which is the higher risk percentage?

What about all the adverse reactions to the vaccine? Healthy young people having heart issues (I know a few personally). Overwhelming Majority of ICU and deaths in the 3 and 4x boosted.

That's cherry picking, unless you can provide evidence that all countries locked down later than Germany. Sweden was hit by the first wave disproportionally to many European countries due to a large number of skiers returning with the virus from Italy. Nonetheless, without any lockdowns whatsoever, Sweden has almost the same mortality as Germany. Lockdowns did nothing useful.

We have data on the vaccinations effectiveness. But I do not want to share them out of risk of angering higher powers. I fear the data of the science is fake news and contrary to the state narrative.... which means it is bad, and I am wrong for believing it. I had shared different views previously and it was rightly deleted by moderators. Now I understand that the state is right, and I was wrong. The state is always right. Scientists and data lie. Believe what your officials tell you.... as long as they are saying the prevailing narrative. Anything else is lies and misinformation from Russia. I am glad I have been re-educated and now can help spread "truth".

The elderly are an afterthought in this awful capitalistic paradigm in general because capitalism only values you if you can slave away for it. But the system cant just shoot them in the head once they cant work anymore, so they stick them in 'homes' where theyre looked after by typically the least caring people on the planet and given very little respect, where they can be out of the way and on track towards death and no longer a financial burden. A huge contrast from indigenous cultures, and yet we are supposedly more 'cultured' or 'refined'

Location: Vancouver Island BC Canada As everyone else from the pnw has mentioned, it's still summer, fall hasn't materialized. Tomorrow is supposed to be close to 30°c ....again.... That fucking fire is still making life miserable my chest is heavy from the constant diet of smoke and ash. I seem to have developed an allergy to something in the smoke, or the ash, I'm not sure which. But it's like hayfever except there is no pollen, just a white powdery film on everything. You can almost feel the lung cancer growing. Last week's promised rain again didn't materialize maybe a 1/4 tsp total spread across the yard. The clouds came and trapped the smoke down low so it was muggy and grey instead of brown for a few hours. They actioned the fire for half a day on Friday, then took the weekend off so any gains made were totally erased by this morning. Everything is so dry, my cedar trees are dying now, the ferns and salal have all shriveled and turned brown, my blackberry patch is dehydrated. It's all just depressing, I don't even go outside anymore except to stop my lab from eating our other dogs poop... The soil where once was lawn, is all just blowing away it looks more like sand than dirt. Even the Alders are turning brown... Heat fire ash smoke blowing dust and dead trees. Guess I should get used to it, its how every summer has ended for the last few years. And then the floods and the power outages and (if the forecasters are right) a brutally cold winter with more power outages maybe a dose of COVID and empty cupboard because we finally can't afford food... My mood is glum. I still haven't heard word about my friends in cape Breton, I'm sure their bodies are ok, but being as their house was close to the shore I'm not sure how they are doing. It's really ugly from what I've seen on the news. My daughter's mental health is getting much worse than mine and there is zero services for mental health this end of the island. Our healthcare system is in a shambles but our community is fortunate the clinic hours haven't been cut, like many communities in the island. Although we never had emergency services at night or on weekends, but so many small hospitals and clinics are closing in larger communities for days at a time requiring people to travel hundreds of km for emergency services. I imagine it will get worse.

Location: Vancouver Island BC Canada As everyone else from the pnw has mentioned, it's still summer, fall hasn't materialized. Tomorrow is supposed to be close to 30°c ....again.... That fucking fire is still making life miserable my chest is heavy from the constant diet of smoke and ash. I seem to have developed an allergy to something in the smoke, or the ash, I'm not sure which. But it's like hayfever except there is no pollen, just a white powdery film on everything. You can almost feel the lung cancer growing. Last week's promised rain again didn't materialize maybe a 1/4 tsp total spread across the yard. The clouds came and trapped the smoke down low so it was muggy and grey instead of brown for a few hours. They actioned the fire for half a day on Friday, then took the weekend off so any gains made were totally erased by this morning. Everything is so dry, my cedar trees are dying now, the ferns and salal have all shriveled and turned brown, my blackberry patch is dehydrated. It's all just depressing, I don't even go outside anymore except to stop my lab from eating our other dogs poop... The soil where once was lawn, is all just blowing away it looks more like sand than dirt. Even the Alders are turning brown... Heat fire ash smoke blowing dust and dead trees. Guess I should get used to it, its how every summer has ended for the last few years. And then the floods and the power outages and (if the forecasters are right) a brutally cold winter with more power outages maybe a dose of COVID and empty cupboard because we finally can't afford food...

The elderly are an afterthought in this awful capitalistic paradigm in general because capitalism only values you if you can slave away for it. But the system cant just shoot them in the head once they cant work anymore, so they stick them in 'homes' where theyre looked after by typically the least caring people on the planet and given very little respect, where they can be out of the way and on track towards death and no longer a financial burden. A huge contrast from indigenous cultures, and yet we are supposedly more 'cultured' or 'refined'

Yes, the reason is to make it quite clear: If you want to better prepare for a similar future disaster, you should keep more cash on hand. Consider your current experience a lesson. People make mistakes, and it's usually not that big a deal. It's really only a problem when they don't learn from their mistakes. It does seem quite clear that you have no better ideas, so I guess that means this conversation is over now.

The following submission statement was provided by /u/Smorgali: --- “Making neighborhoods more “green” through environmental infrastructure and other green investments such as open space parks, rain gardens, permeable pavement and rainwater harvesting can result in an area being perceived as more desirable, which can lead to rents and property values going up. This, in turn, leads to lower-income residents being pushed out — a process called “green gentrification.”” The first paragraph explains how even green infrastructure and other ventures can exacerbate collapse in other ways if profit is put before people. --- Please reply to OP's comment here: https://old.reddit.com/r/collapse/comments/xp28ox/green_gentrification_can_force_out_longterm/iq1rpxc/

The following submission statement was provided by /u/jiayux: --- **Submission statement** This article shows that the COVID-19 pandemic magnifies some existing problems - which, combined with the pandemic itself, form a vicious cycle.

On the other hand, the pandemic caused even worse worker shortages (due to them being sick or resigning), hence forming a feedback loop. Second, economic hardship and loneliness among older Americans were widespread, again before COVID. The pandemic directly exacerbated the problem by causing elders to use up their life savings, and/or fail to perform daily activities (hanging out with children/grandchildren, etc.) due to fear of infection.

Yeah, even there you are wrong. Nixon did not tap a vacuum with his "Southern Strategy" in the 60's. Factionalism is a learned behavior, and some embrace it more readily than others. >"most of the plebs (that’s us -- well, me at any rate) are happy enough to divide ourselves up into factions " Divide and conquer is now and has always been a useful strategy for the oligarchs, people like you ensure that it stays effective (and easier than ever). >so I am taking the liberty of unilaterally considering this conversation at an end.

The following submission statement was provided by /u/PleasantKey4649: --- Sunday, Sept. 25, 2022. A billowing column of dark smoke towered over Paris Sunday from a warehouse blaze at a massive produce market that supplies the French capital and surrounding region with much of its fresh food and bills itself as the largest of its kind in the world. Firefighters urged people to stay away from the area in Paris' southern suburbs, as 100 officers and 30 fire engines battled the blaze at the Rungis International Market. Capt. Marc Le Moine, a representative for the Paris fire service, said no one was injured. The fire was brought under control and there was no risk of it spreading from the soccer field-sized warehouse, covering an area of 7,000 square meters (1.7 acres), he said. The cause of the blaze was unknown but will be investigated, he added. The sprawling wholesale market is a veritable town unto itself, with more than 12,000 people working there and warehouses filled with fruit and vegetables, seafood, meats, dairy products and flowers from across France and around the world Lately alot of fresh produce markets catch fires.

First, you should reply to concerns regarding post removals in the mod mail; only one mod, the one that removed the post, will be able to see your question. Second, the Calhoun mouse experiments are not indicative of collapse; mouse behaviors are not one to one with human behaviors. Mostly reactionaries use the outcomes of the Calhoun mouse experiment(s) as a way to serve as basis for more Malthusian social actions or regressive actions against those with undesired life choices (from the conservative view); such as Calhoun suggesting homosexuality being a product of the societal circumstance, whereas we know its a product of biology. Lastly, your source should be more thorough and scientific when discussing this experiment, due to its controversial past (and typically from blogspam arenas). [ I would suggest this piece from Science History for a more indepth look](https://www.sciencehistory.org/distillations/mouse-heaven-or-mouse-hell); you can find other critical pieces as well. Speaking as myself, I am quite aware of this study and spent time digging into and realize its shortfalls and inability to map to our reality. The lay interpretation provided by Calhoun did him no service but to further discredit his work from the scientific community, while causing reactionary actions within the public. Science communities choose their language and approach quite specifically as to couch with concern or probability of certainty. Calhoun did not practice that, and should be regarding with more skepticism. In a positive note, [I would suggest you see how society structures itself during and after disasters, actual human analysis on how we come more together, versus farther apart, in times of great need.](https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-the-stress-of-disaster-brings-people-together/) Collapse is not all doom and gloom. If you have further concerns, please use the modmail for another mod's perspective.

I just quit a company that owns over 10 bars here in San Francisco. A week later, the owner of the entire company texts me out of the blue saying “the company is worried about losing someone with my skillset” which causes a number of red flags in my book. First off, I have not worked for this company for long enough to merit getting texts from the absolute top management about “possibly coming back” which implies they are experiencing massive employee turnover and the company is imploding. Second, dude has now missed his own phone appointment (that he set up, yes) with me by 45 minutes, implying he’s currently putting out some other fire in the company and I’m a lesser priority. Regardless, either way it appears upper management is spread real thin and doing jobs that their HR, bar managers or general managers would be doing and that leads me to believe the labor market is absolutely fucked. I don’t think millionaires who own all these bars want to actually do the jobs they hire other people to do for them, and when you see owners *having to step up* to the plate rather than *wanting to step up,* that’s a major red flag. Have you guys seen anything else like this with your current/precious jobs? Cheers.

Yes, the reason is to make it quite clear: If you want to better prepare for a similar future disaster, you should keep more cash on hand. Consider your current experience a lesson. People make mistakes, and it's usually not that big a deal. It's really only a problem when they don't learn from their mistakes. It does seem quite clear that you have no better ideas, so I guess that means this conversation is over now.

Map of Most/Least Affected PlacesDoes anyone know of any effort done in order to make a map out of which places will be most/least affected by different future factors such as water scarcity, flooding, extreme heat, etc? I know that the further out you estimate, the less certainty there is, specially when you mix different factors (eg. water scarcity due to a regional river drying up + extreme heat due to ocean currents changing), but it is at least some guidance. I’m sure I could find maps (like the NOAA coastal one posted today in regards to the ocean water level) for each and overlay them myself, but I’m also sure that more knowledgeable people would have extra insights, and being maintained by a community of people would bring in extra value as opposed to one person. All other things being the same, the map could be a good tiebreaking factor for people moving. edit: just to be clear, i was wondering if there was a community effort somewhere that i could follow along and start helping, akin to how people use github to develop open source projects. That said, many thanks to people listing places and tips, and huge thanks to u/shawnpetry and u/\_cromwell\_

So basically you are saying that I am a victim of Capitalist propaganda? What part of “card-carrying Socialist” did you fail to understand? Go sit in your rebel tent with your iPhone, your Chinese-made plastic rucksack, your TikTok and your fashionable water bottle, child, and leave your elders and betters to grieve in peace for the future that was taken away from you.

I am no fan of this policy which is the biggest obstacle to my posting these days. Though I suppose you have to have it because the sub is over 10 times the size it was when I joined. However I came here because this is a thread mods will read, to say that the reporting system is really inadequate these days, as it isn't possible to explain in your own words what's wrong with a post, and you have also removed duplicate posts as a category. There are still frequently duplicate posts on the sub and it's tedious. They can only be a bigger problem with so many more posters these days.

The main issue is surviving a suicide by gun attempt. It’s a fate worse than death. You’ll be physically, if not mentally disfigured for life. So e people are brain damaged, and some blow their jaws off (typically lower)

It doesn't matter if the economics is right or wrong, important or unimportant. Neoliberal orthodoxy is deeply woven into the western institutions that are increasingly becoming authoritarian as multiple crises began to emerge. The only conclusion to of all this is going to be fascism. The OP's post is a description of this emerging fascism. The economy is so important and pivotal to everyone lives that no matter what you do you can escape it. The establishment understands this and will unhesitatingly press down upon the economic scales when they see the public diverge from their goals or desires. You're seeing this with the Ukraine war, and you've already seen it with covid. What makes one apathetic is the fact that people are unthinkingly, unquestioningly accepting this emergent fascism.

It doesn’t have to be cease to be the worlds reserve currency for its value to drop. Even the usa isn’t immune to inflation by printing press. Plus, it’s status as the reserve can weaken without breaking, if China and the saudis make a deal to sell petroleum directly, the dollar will still be the reserve currency. But it’ll be weakened and the deal will decrease its value by some factor unknown. As these type of alternative financial arrangements pop up, the dollar will weaken. Combined with absolutely insane monetary and fiscal policy in the USA this will lead to inflation. 10% a year isn’t hyper inflation. It’s still pretty bad. Lastly, it’s generally a bad plan to assume that your competitors will continue to be terrible. The. Dollar is seeing an astonishing rise in value. It comes as the European economy is collapsing, and China still has draconian lockdowns and such. Of course the usa is going to do good. In 8 yrs time, our monetary inflation will be worse and other economies could be significantly better. Many have potential to stabilize and attract capital.

US Congress Candidate Gets Into Street Brawl Outside of Opponent's Event In BostonDonnie Palmer, a GOP candidate for Massachusetts' 7th District, got into a fist fight outside of an event for Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley on Sunday near Boston. Palmer and several other people were protesting outside. Many screamed at Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cori Bush, and Ilhan Omar (The Squad) as they entered the building. They called them "race hustlers" and hypocrites for riding in an SUV instead of a hybrid.

Yeah, even there you are wrong. Nixon did not tap a vacuum with his "Southern Strategy" in the 60's. Factionalism is a learned behavior, and some embrace it more readily than others. >"most of the plebs (that’s us -- well, me at any rate) are happy enough to divide ourselves up into factions " Divide and conquer is now and has always been a useful strategy for the oligarchs, people like you ensure that it stays effective (and easier than ever). >so I am taking the liberty of unilaterally considering this conversation at an end. IE: Sticking fingers in ear and muttering"wah wah wah"... Good on you, that'll sure teach the rest of us not to question your erroneous assumptions and conclusions.

As Reddit moderators, we don't need excuses to delete posts we don't like. And we wanted to change that. Part of what makes this sub special is that we have a couple of public, connected subs dedicated to record keeping: /r/CollapseModerators for rule discussion and /r/collapse_wilds for all our deleted posts. All Collapse mods are required to join those subs and we --do not-- change any rules without community input. If you want to call out any abuse you see, read those subs frequently.

**EDIT: Please donate to Canadian Red Cross if you're in a position to help** SS: I am barely able to post this as our entire province and most of the East coast has no wifi, data is almost nonexistent, and I had to walk to a warming station today to charge my phone and will have to again tomorrow. I suppose that's why no one has posted about it here yet. The extent of the devastation here is hard to wrap your head around. Just on my street alone there are two large trees with tangled power lines down still blocking the road and that's in the city where it's not as bad. Entire houses have washed into shore and onto people's lawns. The roof of people's houses have blown off. 2 or 3 schools have had the roof blow off and 6 total have been destroyed. Some places are entirely underwater. A few of our bridges have been destroyed. I could go on. The storm started Friday night and continued into Saturday night. For over 12 hours we were pummelled with 170km/hr winds. Maritime Electric is not even halfway through the assessment phase, so they haven't even started on repairs to power lines yet. In my province 95% of the population is without power. I have a friend who is an arborist and spoke with someone from Maritime Electric today, according to this person it will be 2-3 weeks before most places have power. This has been kept on the down low but I've heard this confirmed multiple times from people who have the inside scoop. The reason for this is the main grid lines that connect Borden to Charlottetown (one end of the island to the next) have been completely destroyed. It has to be completely rebuilt before they can even think about restoring power. People are staying to run out of gas for their generators and cars and most gas stations aren't open, or if they are they have no gas to sell because they aren't able to get it from distribution centres. To make matters worse, any purchases we are able to make are cash only. I have $20 cash left and I'm getting worried. This is most certainly a story about climate change. I've heard it said here before and I'll say it again: climate change is the only story that matters. Maritimers are hardy people, we've been through storms before but not like this. Estimated damage is so far in the millions of dollars at least and we are a very small, very poor province. I would say that's a very conservative estimate. This is absolutely devastating. Stay safe everyone. Edit 2: just wanted to note that the "you're still expected to get to work" phrase often repeated on this sub has proven right so far in this situation. I'm shocked by how fast even nonessential workers have been sent back to work when the majority of the population still doesn't have power, lives are still down everywhere, trees are down blocking roads, etc.
