Problems

Oil running out

fuel shortage

messier extraction methods of e.g. oil tar sands

likely to lead to armed conflict due to military prioritization of fuel acquisition

rising prices of consumer goods (due to increased shipping prices)

increased dependence on bio-fuels, taking away nourishment that could be used to combat famine.

likely to increase dependency on other fossile fuels (as long as a viable full-scale alternative is not found)

Climate change

temperature increase

impact on food chain

famine

destruction of fragile eco systems, coral reefs, arctic-based species, e.g. krill, shrimp

melting of glaciers, disruption of natural water flow, removal of vital water supply (e.g. in the Himalayas)

melting of polar ice

sea levels rising, civil unrest, refugee problems

release of gasses tied up in the ice

Ressources running out

oil = affects our plastics dependency

rare minerals / metals, e.g. computer industry

food ressources, e.g. fishing stocks

Population growth

increased demands on infrastructure

famine

demands for higher quality of life for vast amounts of people

slanted, high population growth in some areas, low in others, leading to some countries having too many old people. A system that's based on perpetual expansion crumbles when new influx of people is much smaller than the existing population base, which needs sustaining.

Plastics pollution of the oceans

"The Great Pacific Gyre"

Wide-spread pollution of our oceans is a reality

risk of destroying vital part of the global food chain

Political extremism

fascism on the rise in Europe / US

restrictive legislation

fewer civil rights

more control (police/legal)

increased media control by the gov't

removal of influence from ordinary citizens

leaders not always elected, chosen instead (example: the EU / religious edicts in e.g. Iran)

fewer public elections, e.g. expansion of the EU (EU president, military, economic)

extremism

Islamic countries political/religious melding

US political/religious melding

atheist increasingly organized / firm stance

Economy

based on perpetual expansion

impossible due to dwindling resources

impossible due to existing production methods, carbon emission problems et.al.

a "virtual" construct, based largely on the perception of value, rather than actual value.

market economy problems
