Global heatwave symptom of early stage cycle of civilisational collapse

The extreme weather events of the summer of 2018 are not just symptoms of climate breakdown.

They are early stage warnings of a protracted process of civilisational collapse as industrial societies face some of the opening symptoms of having already breached the limits of a safe climate.

These events are a taste of things to come on a business-as-usual trajectory.

They elicit a sense of how industrial civilisational systems are vulnerable to collapse due to escalating climate impacts. And they highlight the urgent necessity of communities everywhere undertaking steps to achieve a systemic civilisational transition toward post-capitalist systems which can survive and prosper after fossil fuels.
