This is more like the rupture.... and self-inflicted at that.

Militaries around the world are preparing for climate change because they have to. Millions of rwingers in the US aren't because "owning" Dems.

Ever hear George Carlin talk about the Earth being self-aware? Yeah, even speculated the Earth would use diseases 2 keep Humanity in control.

Rupture? Oy! Don't say that to an old person. But seriously, global warming? I don't have to move to Florida? What a kvell!

"Ever hear George Carlin talk about the Earth being self-aware?"

I'm not particularly convinced people are really all that self-aware, considering how we keep destroying our own planet, and have been, for centuries. Or spreading disease, take your pick.

Native American cultures seem to have far greater awareness of the delicate nature of human habitat, compared to our culture.

If you go to Netflix right now there's a series called love death and robots in the second season there's an episode in which a giant dead human washes up on a beach and the way that people treat the body is pretty much how they treat the environment.

Not particularly, they just never developed the tech to dominate their environment as an accident of history. People are people no matter where they are.

I don't agree that everything that happened was inevitable.

Or that everything that will happen is inevitable, which is the same thing, really.

Only if government mandates that it be.

No, it's not. Modern civilization will destroy the biosphere. Or at least change it enough to kill us off. Probably quicker than most people think.
