Problem Factors in the Global Megacrisis
The global crisis doesn't yet have a suitable name, one that the public grasps and uses to represent the totality of the factors that are converging into a potentially catastrophic global crisis.

So, thus far, the crisis has no name. My working name is "global megacrisis" because the name "global warming" is too narrow of a term. Why? Because the causal factors of the crisis are far greater in number than global warming due to the increase in greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.

This issue is particularly difficult to grasp, for it suggests the unthinkable is looming upon humanity in this century—global ecocide—a problem almost too big to grasp or even entertain as a possibility. Yet leading scientists and analysts such as Buckminister Fuller, Jared Diamond, Noam Chomsky and Dennis Meadows and many others have warned us.
