I’m an engineer (the applied science kind), formerly an architectural designer, and even more formerly a photographer and videographer. Self-employed.
I spend just enough time in the office to get carpal tunnel and just enough time in the field to wreck my knees. Stupid #meatspace ...

climate, civilizational collapse
I see. So we're at the point now where a heavily-cited professor emeritus who publishes in Nature and Science is writing unequivocally:
we are past 9 of 15 global climate tipping points,
the Limits to Growth system dynamics models were right, and
that the "neoliberal economic system" and "capitalism" are the problem; we (mainly Westerners) must change our “high production high consumption lifestyles”; and that modernity is a “religion built not around eternal life but around eternal growth.”

so any professor who says to me otherwise is just trying to gaslight me.
