Fred, thank you for pointing out Prof. Murphy's article. I also downloaded his excellent textbook which really lays out his thesis in black and white.

I think we are screwed and those of us who are aware, (and a bit freaked out) need to keep talking to see what part of humanity we can salvage, and what a transitional adaptation looks like before we are finally forced into Prof. Jem Bendell's "deep adaptation".

I'd appreciate a read and feedback if you have any on this article. I'm trying to wrap my head around what a controlled degrowth would look like, personally.
