Today we present an article for Round 5 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. It highlights the views of the multi-millenial collapse scenario crowd. (The latest iteration of the Roberto Vacca/Club of Rome/Coming Dark Age view espoused back in the 1970s. I’m not quite so pessimistic, but it is certainly food for thought.
