ableist, ageist, and transphobic

Are they really? I’m honestly curious because what little I know about anthropology usually points to hunter-gatherer cultures as being egalitarian and holding elders in high regard due to having no written language.

In about 40 years, even if we predict optimistically, we simply just won't have food, or at least you won't have food assuming you're middle/lower class.

What if you engineer it instead of conventional growing methods?

These things seem to be based on the idea that we wont be able to technologically combat the problems.

If civilization as we know it continues, humanity's standard of living will be permanently stunted

But will it be worse compared to a primitivist/hunting and gathering lifestyle?

Your quote looks bleak, particularly the issue of transitioning to green energy, which now to me looks quite unrealistic without massive social upheaval. But it doesn't address why I as someone who benefits from technology would not want to work toward that transition rather than agree to give it up. I know primitivists and anti-civ anarchists have other issues with industry but almost none of those apply to me, someone who needs blood tests every two weeks. In my best interest, I would try to incite revolution against capitalism to bring green energy and hope for a sustainable circular economy, which has already been looked at by the EU, though I'm not hiding my breath.

Further, it does not address current advancements in labs or the possibility of industrial rationing which seems obvious once capitalism is dismantled.
