This wiki is relatively new but it is already an extensive resource so I thought you people might like this.


Kath Kuni: Restoring these majestic wood and stone buildings of Himachal Pradesh
Sorry if this seems out of place, but I think collapse is often framed as something we'll lose. I think it's important to remember things like this that will be gained We didn't abandon incredible architectures like this because we "advanced" passed them. We abandoned them because nails and bricks got cheap to make and mass produced architecture became the norm Collapse shows us the true costs of industrial building methods and forces us to face what we've turned into "economic externalities"

Why are heat waves worse than cold spells?
Because there are low-tech ways of dealing with the cold: thicker clothing, resistive electric heaters, fire. With heatwaves past a certain point, you need high-tech (read: expensive) air conditioners, which is out of reach of tons of people. Historically, the only reason more people died from the cold was because it was really cold in places where a lot of humans live more often than it was really hot. With the Climate Crisis, that is about to flip around.

This is the place for discussing the potential collapse of modern civilization and the environment.


Collapse, in this context, refers to the significant loss of an established level or complexity towards a much simpler state. It can occur differently within many areas, orderly or chaotically, and be willing or unwilling. It does not necessarily imply human extinction or a singular, global event. Although, the longer the duration, the more it resembles a ‘decline’ instead of collapse.
