_The Collapse of Complex Societies_ by Joseph Tainter

You may have an observation worth following up on. IMHO, the problem depends on how much oil and coal we suck
up, but can't replace at the same time that we're "dissolving" the sustaining layer of the earth's surface
(forests), as we continue to squeeze more of "our kind" into bigger mounds of transformed minerals (cities).
If you can get a rough idea of the numbers involved, you may have an answer that comes close. Jung's term
"synchronicity" might apply, in that case. Another interesting "coincidence."
