## Global Ponzi meltdown/House of Cards/global cooling/deflationary collapse ##
The demographic situation the world faces is unprecedented and unparalleled in modern history.  All the deaths of the past few centuries warfare were blips on the radar compared to what is taking place now.  Given the infinite growth economic model, the situation is beyond repair and no repair will be attempted.

Planting trees and shrubs around factories and power plants may be a better air pollution mitigation strategy than installing scrubbing technologies, according to a new study.
This is a complex problem with no easy solution. There are surely elites who want to quickly reduce the human population, and through nefarious means such as biowarfare. Unfortunately, even if these people do not succeed, failure of the global financial system and net energy decline will inevitably trigger a collapse that achieves the same end. Victims can thank the world's greedy, corrupt, myopic, and inept leadership for this. Billions of innocent people will die because of this leadership failure, so our immediate focus should be on saving as many of them as possible. On the other hand, we need to realize that a planet inhabited by nothing but humans and their domestic animals is not only undesirable, but also impossible. Other species are literally being pushed off the planet by the great human land grab. Our leaders tell us that we need more workers, more taxpayers, more consumers, and more people to pay into ponzi pension systems. Obviously, many of these people believe that the more humans, the better, but that's the mentality that helped lead us to this situation in the first place. And BTW, because most leaders subscribe to this mentality, it means that elites who favor exterminating most of the human population are a very small minority. -- RF
