State of the Species

In State of the Species (Orion Magazine, 2012), Charles Mann discusses whether civilization is doomed to collapse as a consequence of uncontrolled growth destroying our habitat.

Some of the comments following the article are interesting. Ruben Nelson writes:

"This piece names what I see to be the root dilemma we face as a species in the 21st century — consciously choosing to change the trajectory of our modern/Industrial form of civilization or unconsciously continuing to commit to a path that over time leads to the extinction of many more species, likely including our own."
