In those moments I try and force myself to remember that this is my job. House painters don’t get house painter’s block. Baristas don’t get barista’s block.

But this is as good as it is inevitable for the planet, right? The “end of civilization” is just code for “Rome fell” and that was a net plus for the world after a while.

Again, like with the Big Bang thing, what the fuck did we think would happen?
Time is a flat circle, man.
Did anyone actually click through? Here is the most important phrase: “Although the study is largely theoretical,” which means this isn’t a “study” so much as a “guessing game.” It’s getting published in Ecological Economics - which is to say, this is an economist’s idea, not some kind of data analysis.
Stop getting excited about mass extinction.
