Other worlds are possible
Something about this report — Other worlds are possible: Human progress in an age of climate change — feels new. Perhaps it’s the way in which the New Economics Foundation, which has for so long been linked to things emerging and creative, is here instead at the center of a large and illustrious company. No longer new so much as, perhaps, representative of an emerging consensus, in which the politics of climate, of development, and of opposition to the existing economic system have been thoroughly mixed together, to the point where they’re setting into something firmer and more … foundational?
“The report bounces between climate change, development issues and a critique of the global economic system, but this is part of the point the authors are trying to make — that all these issues are indelibly linked and can be traced back to unsustainable economic models and the consensus decision to stick to these models even when faced with their failures and negative effects.”
It’s a mix that Greenhouse Development Rights fits easily into, and its good to be part of it.
