BLIP: HUMANITY'S 300 YEAR SELF-TERMINATING EXPERIMENT WITH INDUSTRIALISM Christopher O Clugston 393 Pages ISBN-10: 1644380684 ISBN-13: 978-1644380680

Since the inception of our industrial revolution, we increasingly ingenious Homo sapiens have been depleting--persistently and increasingly--the finite, non-replenishing, and increasingly scarce NNRs (nonrenewable natural resources) that enable our industrialized way of life, and our very existence.

Regrettably, because the NNR utilization behavior that enables our species' existence--and that is essential to perpetuating our existence--simultaneously undermines our existence, both our NNR utilization behavior and our resultant industrial lifestyle paradigm are unsustainable.

The premise of Blip is that increasingly pervasive global NNR scarcity is causing faltering global human prosperity, which is causing increasing global political instability, economic fragility, and societal unrest. This scenario will intensify during the coming decades and culminate in humanity's self-inflicted global societal (species) collapse, almost certainly by the year 2050.

Blip substantiates these seemingly inconceivable assertions by synthesizing the quantitative and qualitative evidence produced by hundreds of scientists, scholars, researchers, and analysts in the various physical sciences and behavioral sciences that address the origins and evolution of industrial humanity and human industrialism.
