Philadelphia Scholars Back Global Report Warning of Climate Change’s Irreversible Effects
January 6, 2021
In 2018, British scholar Jem Bendell predicted climate change will result in a “societal collapse” by 2030, involving starvation, migration, disease, war, and disruptions in power and social systems — which, obviously, stirred widespread panic and criticism.
Naysayers claim Bendell’s report, titled “Deep Adaptation,” is not backed by science. However, his recently revised report now has 500 scholars worldwide endorsing his estimates, including some from the Delaware Valley.
