An international group of 17 leading physical and social scientists, including Omega Advisory Board member Joan Diamond, have produced a comprehensive yet concise assessment of the state of civilization, warning that the outlook is more dire and dangerous than is generally understood.
In this Omega Conversation webinar, Omega founder Michael Lerner hosts Paul Ehrlich, Joan Diamond, Gerardo Ceballos, Nate Hagens, and Bill Rees in a discussion of that paper. This conversation is presented in collaboration with The Millennium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere (MAHB), The Resilience Project (TRP), Foresight Analysis Nexus (FAN), The New School at Commonweal.
This study has been covered in media organizations including CNN World, Reuters, The Guardian, International Business Times, Taipei Times, The Irish Times, and the University of California. As well, the paper has generated over a thousand media articles and interviews, suggesting that public interest is extremely high.
