A Fairy Tale of Eternal Growth: The Climate Minute Podcast

Greta Thunberg’s speech at the UN contained the line “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!” In a warming world, can we continue to pursue higher and higher GDP? The “Doughnut Economy” gives us a new way to think.

The reading list:

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.

Thanks for listening.
