  1. NASA Study Says Modern Civilization Faces Collapse

    In Hollywood, NASA always helps with last-ditch efforts to save humanity by diverting asteroids. But a real-life study funded by the space program cites more terrestrial dangers: inequality and consumption. It says historical data shows the rise and fall of civilizations throughout time and issued a warning about our own possible collapse thanks to wealth disparities and overconsumption. Much like in the movies, though, NASA has a way to save the day — by reducing consumption, redistributing resources and slowing population growth. No problem then.
