3. What exactly are we supposed to "start"? Does the author have an idea what he demands?

The author is railing against a fake "sustainability". This means, he is railing against such things as recycling, wind-power, solar, hydrogen, fusion-research... This whole shift from "evil" to "less evil" is to be replaced by a complete reorganization of human civilization into a form that can sustain either less population or a significantly lower level of comfort.

What exactly are we, as normal people, as a tiny fraction of 7 billion people, supposed to do to start a historic cataclysm?

Are we supposed to denounce energy-saving technologies, quit our jobs that use up so much electricity, leave our apartments that were built with unsustainably produced cement and dead trees, and move to the countryside to start a new life, one with nature, in an agrarian society?

Are 7 billion people supposed to do that?
