On March 18th, we reported that a study by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center found that civilization could be headed for a collapse in our lifetime. Since then, NASA released a statement saying that the study “was not solicited, directed or reviewed by NASA. It is an independent study by the university researchers utilizing research tools developed for a separate NASA activity. As is the case with all independent research, the views and conclusions in the paper are those of the authors alone. NASA does not endorse the paper or its conclusions.” The work in the study was, however, partially funded by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
