What is humanity's long term future, and how can we improve it?
That is the question this site seeks to help answer.
It has been known for hundreds of years that exponential growth is unsustainable. Both the human population and the power of individuals have been growing exponentially for at least that long.
Over the past 30 years we have collectively become so powerful that we are measurably influencing natural systems on a global scale. Our depletion of resources is now so great that it may be reducing our population growth. There are many reasons to believe that as a result of these factors, our population could peak and then decline in the lifetimes of people alive today. Unless we take control of our destiny.
With power comes responsibility, but far too many of us are in denial of our power and unwilling to accept the responsibility that comes with it. Unfortunately, we no longer have that option.
