George’s call to action, NOW

You’ve got to read this call to action from George Monbiot.

He starts with what appears to be a technological approach: replace fossil fuels with electric, and all will be well. Those who pay attention to scientific evidence have known from the 1970s that this is false. But then, indeed he points out some of the many problems of continuing to consume the earth using a different power source.

What is killing the environment, and therefore threatening all complex life on Earth, is the current economic model. George agrees with me that this is what needs to change.

He is optimistic that we still have a chance of doing so.

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.

    Thanks for the Monbiot article link, Bob. I read it as you urged, and agree that rethinking our societies, globally, is the only way out of this mess. Sounds like a long shot, but let’s hope that it happens.
