Will climate change lead to culture change? - CSMonitor.com
Some worry that society will have to suffer total collapse and rebuild itself in the face of climate change. But does it really have to be that drastic?
This will be a petty (but insightful) blog post about another author thinking about how will adapt to climate change. Paul Gilding (ex-Greenpeace thinker) anticipates that climate change and resource depletion will force us to cast away our old consumption based "American Dream" conception of the "good life" and embrace a more Berkeley lifestyle. Apparently, he believes that a silver lining of mass destruction caused by climate change is that a new culture will emerge that will drop "shopping" cold turkey.
