Robotics lecturer Dylan Evans has a bleak view of the future. He believes civilisation will collapse within the next 35 years. To pre-empt the apocalypse he has sold all his possessions and is going to set up a community, Utopia, in the Scottish Highlands.
I agree that we’re heading for major problems, but I’m not as pessimistic as Mr. Evans. It’s entirely possible that our current systems will stop working, but action now could mitigate against the worst possible outcomes.
