Well the trouble stems from the way human's brains work, they are designed to solve immediate problems with tools at hand or by using those tools to make new better stronger tools that allow for more effective exploitation of resources.

But eventually one passes the sustainable use of those resources and begins to draw down upon nature's largess in hyper exploitation, which gives immediate advantage to one group of people over others in the short term. But this damages and destroys the land base in the long term.

This is likely how the first civilizations rose, and explains why they all eventually collapse. The civilizations hyper exploit local resources for material advantage and then must expand to conquer and acquire resources beyond their borders thus leading to imperialism.

I wouldn't be surprised if this simply leads to our species overall being un-fixable, despite the warnings being provided by those paying attention, and destined for extinction.
