Environmental Collapse: when and how bad?

Servigne and Stevens argue that the specter of apocalypse, like the economic gospel of perpetual growth, is only a distraction from the true danger: civilizational collapse resulting from wanton exploitation of natural resources. At the end of the world we can relax, because there will be nothing left to do. Collapse, by contrast, requires hard work, because it is as much a beginning as an end. In the view of these self-styled “collapsologists,” the disintegration of national and global institutions will demand invention, resourcefulness, and a return to small, mostly self-sufficient communities that depend on local networks of mutual aid. The newly minted discipline of collapsology aims to help people prepare for this new way of being.

Anyone read How Everything Can Collapse?

A friend who moved to Edmonton late last year says it's 35 Celsius there, and that's not even the particularly hot bit of Canada right now.

A hundred people confirmed dead in these floods in Germany and 1,300 missing. Temperatures of 50 C in British Columbia. This is just totally fucking nuts.
