The Bad News

Sustainable Diss 2030 Chapter 3 The bad news: Why the changes are necessary

Download the booklet (1 Mbyte) and its cover, including map, here.

This section, from pages 33 – 41 gives ‘the bad news’, what is going wrong now that means that major changes are coming whether we like it or not. It describes some of our main impacts on the Earth (climate change, mass extinction, fresh water scarcity, death of the oceans, etc.). It explains ‘peak oil’, or why cheap oil cannot continue, and the economic consequences of that: no return to economic growth.

After reading the booklet, please vote in our polls giving your view of the main points, and then add your comments below.

    The more I watch the news, especially the economic news, the more worried I get. I think the next big downturn could happen at any time, so we really need to be prepared. The two key changes that will help are more local food and community organisation so we can support each other in whatever ways are possible.

    What do other people think?
