Spurred on by poorly planned development, swaths of southeast Spain are turning into desert.
“Climate change means that creeping deserts may eventually drive 135 million people off their land, the United Nations estimates. Most of them are in the developing world. But Southern Europe is experiencing the problem now, its climate drying to the point that it is becoming more like Africa’s, scientists say.”
This, I believe is how the world will begin it’s gradual decline. War brought on by a struggle for resources. We are running out.
