What is the “Culture of Abundance”, Jordan?

I see the basic point that we can engage humanly, and this hearkens back to the early 1960s, when Murray Bookchin said that society needed to adapt to abundance, and in very real terms of physical plenty. By 1973, The Limits To Growth painted a picture of exponential growth of economy having an nevitable and predictable end, when things like oil and clean air were combined to eliminate both. Poof! No more energy. No more abundance.

We are there. Peak global economy and peak global CO2 production happened before the end of 2014. Wile-E-Coyote is peeking down.
