The thesis of this publication is a terrifying one: our current international civilisation will cave in inside of 20 years, and it's too past due to forestall it. we will regress to a 'New center a long time' equivalent to the autumn of the Roman Empire, merely even more harmful. For the 1st time within the entire of human background, definite 'dramatic lines', monstrous crises and catastrophes of colossal proportions - already tangible - have emerged. they're converging and may probably achieve their zenith by way of 2020. as much as that point, as we have now already been witnessing, their results will proceed to worsen, till a verge of collapse is reached.

With a doctorate in political technology from Paris' Institute of Political technological know-how, the essayist Guillaume Faye used to be one of many significant theoreticians of the French Nouvelle Droite within the Seventies and '80s sooner than his starting to be sympathy for the identitarian circulate.

The resulting shock and climactic cataclysms that follow will be of an unprecedented ferocity. We are seeing only the tip of the iceberg. The failure of the ‘Kyoto Protocol’ that aimed at reducing the emission of pollutants, which was especially due to short-sighted American egoism, shows us that absolutely nothing will be done. Worse yet, even if by a miracle these emissions were stabilised or reduced, temperatures will continue to rise because of past pollution. So we know for a certainty that in the next twenty years these emissions will increase considerably, because of the unchecked industrialisation of the developing Asian countries, which care absolutely nothing about environmental matters.
How will our society react in perhaps less than twenty years, if Western Europe begins to experience winters like Siberia’s (because of the melting of the Arctic ice cap that will entail the end of the warm Gulf Stream), followed in spring by torrential rain which will cause flooding, then in summer by drought and Sahara-like heat, without forgetting terrible autumn hurricanes? These will no longer be a question of ‘accidents’, but of a new status quo for the climate. It is likely that these phenomena will have grave repercussions on the economic, psychological and political equilibrium in a society as fragile and oversensitive as ours.
If once upon a time this type of regime was efficient, today it seems incompetent, as it shows every day, to stem the rise of dangers. International conferences on the environment are a futile waste of time. Just as there is no control over mass immigration, so the destruction of fish reserves and our forest heritage, the increased emission of greenhouse gases, the demographic gap between North and South, and so on, are out of control. Even the authorities who arise to reverse the catastrophic course of events, whether they represent countries or the United Nations, do not succeed in correcting the direction of the cargo ship that is going full sail, faster and faster, towards the reefs.
