This piece correctly points out that global warming is a result of humanity’s deliberate blindness to the fact that exponential growth is impossible. Climate change must be reversed or homo sapiens will become extinct. The ruling class is the cause, and will surely bring about this catastrophe unless they are deposed, and their power is so great that it is difficult to conceive of any way for the 99% to force a soft landing.
However, there is a possibility that the collapse will be caused by civil events before a violent end. If that happens there will be a short-lived opportunity to implement a new monetary system that will not evolve into the nightmare we now live in.
