What to do about the upcoming double whammy with Anthony Marr - on tour to save our planet?

Our economy, along with the global economy, is toppling off a cliff and the Earth's global ecology, all life on land and ocean, is in a death spiral.  Anthony Marr, author of 2 books and 2 online blog spots, renowned activist on behalf of wildlife, and recipient of prestigious awards for his activism, will address this double calamity that's looming on the horizon.  Not a doomsday prophet, Anthony is a dynamo speaker who will inspire us all to help restore the Earth and navigate our way through the collapsing economy in the coming years.

On the economic front, Anthony sees a huge storm coming, and imminently.  He predicts that by 2015 at the latest, the U.S. Dollar will have crashed, resulting in hyperinflation and huge increases in food and fuel prices.  The latter will grind transportation to a halt, and food outages will be prevalent especially in major cities.  This will precipitate food riots, looting, home invasions, and general social disintegration.  Large metropolises will become death traps.  Anthony will discuss the causes, possible solutions, and personal survival through this upheaval.

On the ecological front, the industrial processes of agribusiness and mining and drilling have already destroyed more than half the Earth and are proceeding to deforest the Earth completely.  Just as all the continents are  turning into deserts under the practices of agribusiness and industries which destroy the soil and plant life, the oceans too are becoming ocean deserts, devoid of life, due to over fishing, acidification, and over heating.  We are every day bringing massive amounts of carbon and methane to the Earth's surface where it enters into the atmosphere, heating up the Earth, causing a mass extinction of all life.  Mass extinction will not necessarily spare humanity.  Anthony will speak about mass extinction and what some of the possibilities are for life on Earth and 7 billion people.
