9. Great post. "In a crisis they do it more"

That's a huge concern: "In a crisis they do it more." Nations will do it more. States will do it more. Individuals will do it more. That's what worries me: that we won't "come together"; rather, we'll pull apart in this deluded fantasy of rugged individualism and self-preservation.

I once corresponded with a professor who teaches Game Theory about what nations would do about climate change, and he was not encouraging in the least.

Michael Klare has written some very good books about this idea that nations (like people) will compete against each other to get the resources that remain, hastening the decline, because "in a crisis they do it more."
