Global heatwave is symptom of early stage cycle of civilisational collapse
BUT BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ACTING WITH AN SENSE OF URGENCY. THE THE PRECURSOR OF CIVILISATiONAL COLLAPSE :: NOT JUST BECAUSE THE FINAL EXTINCTION EVEN IS SO REMOTE, UNIMAGINABLE 'this looks not safe' DOES NOT COME TO MIND WHEN YOU HAVE A 'heatwave' or 'Ernteausfall.' // industrial civilisational systems are vulnerable to collapse due to escalating climate impacts. And they highlight the urgent necessity of communities everywhere undertaking steps to achieve a systemic civilisational transition toward post-capitalist systems which can survive and prosper after fossil fuels. [...] Collapse does not arrive in this scenario as a singular point of terminal completion. Rather, collapse occurs as a a series of discrete but consecutive and interconnected amplifying feedback processes by which these dynamics interact and worsen one another. &! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-45084144 https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/global-heatwave-is-symptom-of-early-stage-cycle-of-civilisational-collapse-efef3c1dd7eb https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/aug/06/domino-effect-of-climate-events-could-push-earth-into-a-hothouse-state

The Fermi Paradox II — Solutions and Ideas – Where Are All The Aliens? - https://youtu.be/1fQkVqno-uI // &! Earth is on the brink of a "mass extinction event" which could be equivalent in scale to the one that killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, a landmark study by an international group of scientists has concluded. Researchers warned that deforestation, climate change, and overfishing have driven extinction rates to 1,000 times their normal level, Reuters reports. Duke University biologist and conversation expert Stuart Pimm says that "time is running out" to avert the threat of mass extinction. ADVERTISING If the crisis is to be avoided, humans need to make large scale changes immediately, Pimm says. - uk.reuters.com/video/2014/06/18/study-says-earth-on-brink-of-mass-extinc?videoId=316465389&videoChannel=82 // WE HAVE A DECADE OR TWO till tipping point of no return!

Capturing the ECB - Joseph E. Stiglitz - Project Syndicate
Moreover, “innovation” in financial markets has made it possible for securities owners to be insured, meaning that they have a seat at the table, but no “skin in the game.” They do have interests: they want to collect on their insurance, and that means that the restructuring must be a “credit event” – tantamount to a default. The ECB’s insistence on “voluntary” restructuring – that is, avoidance of a credit event – has placed the two sides at loggerheads. The irony is that the regulators have allowed the creation of this dysfunctional system.

.... involuntary restructuring vs voluntary restructuring

The ECB’s behavior should not be surprising: as we have seen elsewhere, institutions that are not democratically accountable tend to be captured by special interests. That was true before 2008; unfortunately for Europe – and for the global economy – the problem has not been adequately addressed since then.
