This New Yorker article was sent to me by a reader. It is very long, but good. However, my advice is don't read just part of it -- all or nothing. It's about very rich people who think our civilization may be falling apart and they are preparing for that. I've seen better reactions in the communities who are working on local sustainability. I liked the guy in this article who said to help people instead of flee from them. Apparently the New Yorker still proofreads -- a refreshing change from the internet.
