Truth is our agenda, reality is our paradigm, surviving the Transition is our goal.
Collapse Network is a reality-based news site. Although we have room on our site for religious or esoteric discussions by members, our editorial position is based upon facts and science. We do not support or endorse any position, opinion or article that appears on our site that is not based upon observable real-world phenomena, scientific or historical fact.
It is understood by all of our writers and staff that our members generally:
· Understand peak oil and its relationship to globalization and the state of the world's economy
· Comprehend basic ecology and resource depletion issues, and understand the seriousness of biodiversity loss
· Grasp the connections between industrial civilization, global pollution and climate change, and the resulting destruction of our biosphere
· Recognize plainly that infinite growth cannot exist on a finite planet, and that any attempts to perpetuate infinite growth are suicidal to our species
· Agree that the mainstream media and governments around the world have been corrupted by big business interests and as a result are broken and cannot be trusted to solve the problems they have created and continue to perpetuate
· Understand that we all must prepare together to evolve and survive through the worst converging catastrophes in human history
