Welcome to Collapsosaurus Rex!

In case you hadn’t noticed, civilization is collapsing all around us. The purpose of this site is to document the ongoing destruction of the planet, and to try to get some laughs in before this epic shitshow wraps for good.

Here at CRex, we take a pretty light-hearted approach to chaos and catastrophes, but that doesn’t mean we don’t care about the individuals and ecosystems being ground to dust under the shiny jackboots of civilization. In fact, we probably care too much, which is why we’re scraping out a living as writers instead of raking in the big bucks screwing people over for the corporate overlords.

So anyway, as you read these articles, remember that gallows humor is a time-honored way of dealing with depression and existential angst. Try to keep in mind that we’re not making fun of anyone suffering through the collapse, we’re just trying to lighten the mood a bit while we wait for the end, like a convict in a clown outfit tap-dancing down death row.

It’s also important to note that we’re not here to convince skeptics of anything. Humans passed the point of no-return on civilizational collapse decades ago, and there’s fuck-all anyone can do to stop it now. The laws of physics don’t give a shit if you agree with them or not, and we’re sure as hell not going to waste our precious time arguing with anyone about climate change, capitalism or anything else. You like what we write? Great! Keep reading. You don’t like what we write? Also great! Get the fuck out and find something else to do. We could not possibly care less about your opinions.

Okay then, that’s plenty of foreplay. Let’s get on to the good stuff!

If you’ve never been here before, start with Collapse 101. Our page on What YOU Can Do to prevent collapse is also sometimes helpful for new readers, and our articles on Collapse and the Stages of Grief and Coping Mechanisms may be more interesting for those who are already collapse-aware.
