IMO Humanity is coming to it's end, maybe sooner than we expect. Could this be the push to colonize Mars? Are we seeking homes in a new test tube? Has humanity nearly run it's course on this planet?
I like his analogies - to help all people grab the concept. I trust him and appreciate his mathematical applications. I only sense it - we cannot continue to grow exponentially. It's nice to have it backed up with science (even though he doesn't break it down I trust he has done the work).
What I want to know is - if we are the the 59th minute what will the next 10 years look like? Does he do a video on that? Does anyone have a theory?
It's hard to imagine anything happening suddenly - food stops growing, things in sea die all in the matter of a few years, disease mutating at unprecedented rates. Would these things happen over a few hundred years so we don't notice it or is he saying they would happen in a lifetime or less?
I've asked for input on this before and no one replies so while I think he and others are onto something no one can say what this looks like. Where is an example of this that applies to actual events? Again - I completely believe it but where can we see it in action?
In the 1800's we know there were about 3 billion people on the planet so can also assume there were more nutrients in the soil, trees in the forest, fish in the seas (more balance). However - here we are with three times the population (his exponential theory - seeing it applied), but we aren't yet seeing too much of a decline in response to this - or maybe we are but where is it written down so we can see it? Do we have 1/3 less nutrients in soils, 1/3 less fish in the sea, 1/3 fewer trees in the forest? Or have those been declining on a more exponential level? Less?
