Are we heading towards the END of civilisation?!

The CRAM Podcast ~ Extraordinary Ideas Unleashed

16-05-2024 • 45 mins

*Special Edition*
Do you have a feeling that all is not right with the world?

There’s war, racial conflict, huge economic disparity, political extremism, growing societal discord.  And of course climate change.

You wonder – are we on a path to complete self-destruction?

It’s the ultimate question that researcher Luke Kemp has been studying.   He’s an expert on global catastrophic risk.  He’s looked at the collapse of past civilisations and applies this knowledge to the present day.

Normally our podcast features the work of Canadian researchers but Luke’s work and ideas were so compelling we wanted to have him on to share his views.  What are the signs that a civilisation is coming to an end? Do we see those signs now?

What CAN we do about it?
