Cassandra's legacy

Welcome to the new blog "Cassandra's legacy". Development is in progress

This is a blog by Ugo Bardi; I am interested in peak oil, resource depletion, climate change and - in general - on the evolution of complex systems, such as human societies. This blog is about that - its title comes from the Cassandra of the Iliad, the prophetess who tried, in vain, to warn her fellow Trojan citizens about the dangers ahead. They didn't listen, as we know, but she was right. Today, we still tend to ignore warnings and to use the term "Cassandra" as an offence- it is the Cassandra legacy.


Ugo Bardi is a member of the Club of Rome, faculty member of the University of Florence, and the author of "Extracted" (Chelsea Green 2014), "The Seneca Effect" (Springer 2017), and Before the Collapse (Springer 2019)
