This is Dorsa Brevia's first experiment in hosting a reading and discussion group. We'll be discussing "Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy" by Jem Bendell. This non-academic paper gained notoriety upon its release in 2018 for positing the inevitability of near-term societal collapse due to climate change-related resource pressures, ecosystem collapse, and unprecedented human migration.

Join us to discuss the contents of the paper and the debate around its validity.
