Modern civilization has given us many comforts and conveniences but has caused, and continues to cause, the destruction of the very place we live. We need the Earth and habitat to live. We cannot continue on this path of destruction and expect to keep the lights on, maintaining business as usual. “Going Dark” by Dr. Guy McPherson connects the dots and presents layers of compelling scientific evidence that human extinction is imminent in the near-term.
Most people would find this information depressing and it is. However, I also found it liberating. Guy encourages us to live life with a sense of urgency. We all get to die, we just don't know when.
Having this knowledge can impose a burden of grief and sorrow that fluctuates, but it has also allowed me to recognize and cherish those fleeting moments of joy and the courage to seek the truth.
How would you live your life if you understand your days are numbered?
