The doom that came to Florence by Ugo Bardi


Where once had risen walls of 300 cubits and towers yet higher, now stretched only the marshy shore, and where once had dwelt fifty millions of men now crawled only the detestable green water-lizard. Not even the mines of precious metal remained, for DOOM had come to Sarnath. -- H.P. Lovecraft, "The Doom that Came to Sarnath"

About Ugo Bardi's blog: This blog is about collapses and other worst case hypotheses. Collapses are not supposed to be the end of everything and, if you know how to deal with them, you can not only survive, but even prosper! The author is Ugo Bardi, Italian scientists. He chose the title of the blog, "Cassandra's Legacy" noting how the Trojans would have fared much better if they had listened to their local prophetess.
