Covid and Climate represent challenges that “nations” fail to meet. Nations focus on ‘globalization’ of human issues like trade, travel and information while ignoring the physical limits of the planet. We discuss new ways to think about how humanity should organize itself- with the goal of preserving itself!
The reading list:
- Gilman in Noema on Governing in the Planetary Age
- The Climate Minute on Gilman's prescient forecasting of insurrection
- The C-40 Initiative
- The Climate Minute on ideas that are lying around
- The Sorcerer's Apprentice
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.
