NASA- The end of the world again?

‘With rising population, depleting natural resources and stretching social divide, civilization could be facing collapse within the next few decades, according to a scientific study funded by NASA. And if you think this is a load of scaremongering, it’s happened before. Remember the Roman Empire?
 

In the report conducted by applied mathematician Safa Motesharri, his “Human And Nature Dynamical” (Handy) model claims “the process of rise-and-collapse is actually a recurrent cycle found throughout history.”....
 

Our modern world might appear to be pretty sure of itself, with advanced technologies helping people live longer and revolutionizing everyday life, but this might be to blame. Using his theoretical model, Motesharri explored several factors and ran different scenarios that could lead to the collapse of industrial civilization, and found a breakdown of society could arise from rapid global population growth and unsustainable resource exploitation.
 

And as resources are depleted, they will become more expensive. This is where he further states that “economic stratification” — where society is further divided based on wealth — will create “Elites” (rich) and “Masses” (poor), with the Elites being responsible for over-consuming, leaving the Masses in famine....’
The above is extracts of a commentary posted in The Real Singapore. It quoted the source of this report as from a mathematician, Safa Motesharri, from NASA. How could this be true? We are still trying very hard to grow our population from 5m to 10m and some wanting more. Where got population explosion, where got problem with depletion of resources?
 

I think this Moesharri guy is referring to the rest of the world except Singapore. Singapore got all the resources money can buy, all the land to take in another 10m people and all the advanced technologies to make life even better. The rest of the world’s civilisation may perish but not in Singapore. Maybe that is the reason why all the billionaires are flocking here. Singapore will not expire because of population explosion or lack of resources.
 

We need more population for growth, so said our experts. What is this nonsense about the end of the world? Don’t believe in NASA. Obviously NASA did not have the best talents on earth. They are all here in Singapore.

Rb is right, Sg is still far away from population saturation.
The Most Enlightened Liu Thai Ker should know and he had double confirmed Sin can double its population comfortably. That is after he, Liu Thai Ker is no more around

There's a difference between the "end of the world" and the "end of our species".

The Planet is FINE, The People are FUCKED

Do we need NASA to know the demises of civilizations and species?
It had happened numerous times and some are in progress.

When the rich and powerful talk nonsense, they are always taken to be the absolute truth and carried and repeated over the MSM.

When the pesantry and powerless tell the truth, they are presumed to be soothsayers and whiners and just ignored and brushed aside as jokers.

Nowadays, you have to use your brain wisely and know how to seperate the truth from the lies. Not all experts are always speaking the truth. Their mouths are just following the money trail, nothing else matters.

How to immunize yourself and see clearly through all the PAP propaganda and policies:
ASK:

"HOW DOES IT BENEFIT MY FAMILY AND ME?"

Right, how does 6.9m going to benefit the average sinkies? For the rich private property owners, very good. For the big developers and commercial property owners, higher rent.

For the rest?

Exactly!

And when the old man tells us that he has confidence in Singapore's future, do you believe him? I guess it depends on which side of the fence you are on.

The rich and successful will say he is right. But what confidence is he talking about when the poor and those struggling cannot even make ends meet?
